Five Branches University is one of only three TCM universities in the U.S. that were awarded the opportunity to receive a scholarship for advanced clinical studies in Henan, China.
This Chinese government sponsored scholarship is offered through Henan TCM University. The University was founded in 1958 and is located in Zhengzhou, the capital city of Henan province (north of Beijing). It is one of the earliest established TCM universities in China and is the base for international promotion of Chinese culture and TCM including the qualification test department and education base of World Federation of Acupuncture-Moxibustion Societies.
The annual scholarship is offered to non-Chinese MTCM, DTCM or DAOM students, who have completed at least a quarter of their TCM training and are in good academic standing. The award for the three months spring 2016 scholarship was awarded to a Five Branches MTCM graduate and DAOM student. The scholarship covers tuition, room and board as well as a small stipend for personal needs. Last summer four of our Chinese DAOM students earned this scholarship for advanced clinical studies at Henan TCM University.
