I chose CCATCM because it was important to me that I learn about the philosophies of TCM. I also appreciated the fact that the CCATCM curriculum is based on a holistic health care model which includes body, mind and spirit. I believe that each individual is unique and when it comes to health care, people should be treated as individuals. TCM provides a model where people can be helped, healed and respected and I want to be a part of that. In the future, I hope to enjoy a successful and rewarding career in TCM.
