World Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture College (WCMAAC) in Toronto, Ontario, Canada is currently the only private career college specializing in Chinese medicine and acupuncture that is registered with the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. Students completing our programs are eligible to write the Pan-Canadian Written and Clinical Case-Study Examinations.

We offer certificate, diploma, and advanced diploma programs for various specializations in Chinese medicine. After completing our programs, if you want to further enhance your knowledge, you can enrol in a master’s (MSc) or doctoral (PhD) program in Chinese Medicine offered by the Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (GZUCM).

GZUCM is China’s top university for Chinese medicine. It is China’s largest and best-equipped medical university, with over 50 affiliated hospitals throughout Guangdong Province and is engaged in the promotion of Chinese medicine education throughout the world. In 2012, World Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture College signed a collaboration agreement with GZUCM for a 5-year bachelor’s (BSc), 3-year MSc, and 3-year PhD program. Tuition is $11,000 (Canadian) per year for the MSc program and $12,800 per year for the PhD program. All graduate courses will be taught by GZUCM professors, who will also be proctoring all examinations in the graduate programs.

Applications for 2014 for the MSc and PhD programs offered by GZUCM are accepted until November 30, 2014. If you are under the age of 35 you may qualify for Chinese Government Full Scholarships. Designed for overseas Chinese medicine graduate students, this scholarship fully covers tuition, housing and textbooks for your three years of study, and includes a ¥1,700 (renminbi) monthly stipend for living expenses if you are in the MSc program or a ¥2,000 monthly stipend if you are in the PhD program. If you are eligible you must apply for scholarship before April 12, 2015 and reapply before April 12 of each subsequent year.

You have the option to study either in Toronto or in Guangzhou for the entire duration of your MSc or PhD program, unless you have applied for Chinese Government Full Scholarships, in which case you must stay in Guangzhou for full-time study. If you choose to study in Toronto you must still travel to Guangzhou for short durations for registration, selection of your research thesis topic, and for your thesis defense. During the three years of your study, completion of eight (8) courses are required for graduation from the MSc program, or six (6) courses for the PhD program. You can take up to five years to finish your degree while paying only three years of tuition.

If you are interested, please apply by calling 416-315-7272 or 647-274-6988, or visit us at 5183 Sheppard Ave. East, Scarborough, Ontario. For further information, email us at or visit our website at
