INTI-UC:Pioneer institution in Malaysia to provide Traditional Chinese Medicine courses

Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Hons)

INTI University College Nilai - KPT/JPS(PA8767)06/2014

What initially began as small experiments with indigenous plants, minerals and animals as food revealed that some of these substances could relieve pain and cure diseases. Thus, signalled the birth of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) - a medical system with a unique theory that was developed and expanded over long-term practice and experience.

Today, TCM is accepted and applied by mainstream society and is rapidly gaining new ground due to its significant clinical curative effects. TCM is no longer an alternative form of treatment sought when modern medicine fails. It is now often used in tandem with modern medicine, and both streams are tapped in pursuit of continuous progress and development in healthcare.

INTI University College (INTI-UC) is proud to be the pioneer institution in Malaysia given the mandate to run its own TCM degree programme under the Laureate International Universities network. INTI-UC’s Bachelor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Hons) (BTCM) degree programme provides students’ with a strong foundation in TCM, where basic, classic and professional TCM approaches to healthcare are taught by TCM practitioners from Malaysia and China.

The programme aims to produce professional TCM practitioners with highly adaptable and practical clinical skills, which will be honed through more than 1,200 hours of clinical training for greater practical exposure. INTI has forged a strategic alliance with the Negeri Sembilan Chinese Maternity Hospital and Medical Centre, enabling students to have attachments at the hospital’s newly established TCM Division.

The BTCM (Hons) is a 4-year programme comprising 151 credit hours, spanning 10-semesters of full-time study in Malaysia and 2 months internship locally, followed by 5 months internship in China, at the Shanghai University of Chinese Medicine or Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. Primarily English language based, the programme will include a Mandarin subject as some TCM literature is still in Mandarin. The programme will equip students with scientific and basic medical knowledge that will allow them to adopt and apply an evidence-based approach to TCM.

The BTCM curriculum is world-class. INTI-UC has a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on the 3 + 2 transfer programme with Shanghai University of Traditional Medicine and Beijing University of Chinese Medicine; both recognized by Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam (JPA) and the Ministry of Health Malaysia (MOH). TCM offers great employment prospects in Malaysia as the Government has passed the Traditional and Complementary
Medicine Act, which will enable practitioners to serve in Government and private hospitals.
