Welcome to the Sydney Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine (SITCM). Located in the heart of Sydney, we have been producing industry-ready practitioners in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) in Australia since 1984.

The courses provided by SITCM are designed to empower graduates, serve the community through primary health care and provide ongoing education programs through working alongside other therapists in various clinical settings. SITCM fosters open-mindedness and commitment to high ideals, providing an environment in which students are able to fully develop the habits of continuing self-education and self-fulfilment through service to others.

Our lecturers and clinical supervisors have been involved in TCM for many years, as both educators and practitioners. Many run their own private TCM practices, and most originally studied TCM in China. A number of them enjoy widespread recognition as leaders in their field, and all thrive on the challenge of providing scholarly education services that are evidence-based, academically rigorous and integrate theory and practice.

We currently offer three vocational education courses and one higher education course. All four courses are recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework, and our Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine is approved by the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) in all three divisions of registration: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine and Chinese Herbal Dispensing.

We encourage you to explore this website to learn how SITCM can develop your future in the rewarding field of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
