Published on Wednesday, 7 August 2013 in Programmes

Are you a patient, responsible, proactive and self-reliant person with good interpersonal and communications skills? Are you keen in learning about Chinese Medicine?  If this is what you are keen on, consider careers in Chinese Medicine.

Chinese medicine practitioners basically use traditional medicine (such as herbs) and therapies to aid in a patient’s healing process. These practitioners can work in integrated healthcare in any government or private hospital or clinic. A qualified practitioner can open up his / her own clinic to practice.

 With additional postgraduate qualifications, the Chinese medicine practitioner can work as a lecturer in an institution of higher learning. Alternatively, this practitioner can also be a researcher in an academic institution or herbal or pharmaceutical manufacturing company or be a specialist in a hospital.

Chinese medicine practitioners can further specialise in many areas like acupuncture, moxibusion, tuina and bone manipulations as well as many other specialties like paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, neurology or geriatric diseases.


In order to become a Chinese medicine practitioner, you must undergo a formal education / training which will equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills. This is one of the programmes offered at the International Medical University (IMU), Malaysia’s first and most established private medical and healthcare university founded 21 years ago.
