It is an exciting time to study Traditional Chinese Medicine with the Acupuncture Foundation Ireland. We have been successfully training professional acupuncturists since 1987. Our approach is centred on a hands-on and clinical approach to education - we emphasize clinical training and hands-on skill building.
We are committed to widening access to professional training and higher education by providing blocked taught and clinical sessions, supported by e-learning so that participants can gain a professional qualification while working and caring for their families. We encourage participation by mature students who may not have had the opportunity previously to enter higher education.
Our professional training course is structured so that students can work and learn at the same time. Our experience over several years in delivering our professional training course using blended interactive learning has enabled us to adjust to delivering the course successfully during Covid restrictions. Adding additional elements of live webinars to already extensive online resources ensures the student can study safely from home. Online interactive learning is delivered via a unique learning platform accessed by student login, available to the student at any time. Our online learning platform available to students continuously links into classroom and clinical skills sessions.
