Course Syllabus

The Acupuncture CE Course is equivalent to session 1 ans 2 of the Basic Acupuncture course for Small Animal or Equine. The first portion of this CE course counts as both the first and second session of the basic CE course and is held in China. The remaining sessions may be taken through any Chi campus. For Asian veterinarians we suggest: Session 3 online, Session 4 in China and Session 5 in New Taipei City, Taiwan.
This CE course is specifically designed for Asian veterinarians.

Session 1 & 2 Online Syllabus

All lectures are available for on-demand streaming for the duration of the session.  Each lecture is about 50 minutes in length.
