China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE - By AGEN­CIES

Of­fi­cials from the Beijing Univer­sity of Chi­nese Medicine (BUCM) and Kwantlen Polytech­nic Univer­sity (KPU) of Rich­mond, Bri­tish Columbia on Sept 1 signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing to launch a twoyear acupunc­ture joint diploma pro­gram. Grad­u­ates will re­ceive diplo­mas from both uni­ver­si­ties.

The mem­o­ran­dum prom­ises a frame­work for stu­dents of the Cana­dian univer­sity’s new acupunc­ture diploma pro­gram to trans­fer into year four of BUCM’s five-year de­gree pro­gram in Tra­di­tional Chi­nese Medicine (TCM).

“By choos­ing to fur­ther their stud­ies at BUCM, KPU’s acupunc­ture diploma grad­u­ates will ex­pand their knowl­edge of TCM to in­clude mas­sage, her­bol­ogy, di­etary ther­apy and other im­por­tant TCM-re­lated stud­ies,” said Dr Sal­vador Fer­reras, KPU’s provost.
