Company Description:
THSU offers an oriental medicine program that prepares its graduates for NCCAOM certification and licensing by the state of Texas. Unlike many other schools of traditional Chinese medicine, the curriculum at THSU places great emphasis on the study of classical oriental medicine providing a holistic approach to treatment. At THSU, students come to understand and appreciate how acupuncture is equally as important in treatment as herbology, and that working with herbs in conjunction with acupuncture significantly broadens the scope and efficacy of treatment. The THSU school year consists of three 15:week trimesters that are divided into spring, summer and fall classes. While the majority of the universitys students are full:time, many are employed or have family or other obligations that require much of their time. Therefore, students have the opportunity to enroll in day or night/weekend classes.
