While the majority of graduates from Five Branches University enter practice as sole proprietors, opportunities in integrative medicine, corporate wellness, academics, publishing and TCM research are continually increasing.
Five Branches provides students with the support, education and resources to move forward in their chosen career endeavor. We offer the following Career Development services:
Specialized practice management courses are taught by experts in the field on how to start, manage, build, and sustain a practice. We also invite successful alumni to speak to students about their unique experiences in practice.
Five Branches University students participate in a Career Development Fair prior to the completion of their Masters degree. This requirement is fulfilled through a community health fair or a classroom outreach event where students demonstrate their knowledge and mastery of TCM to inform and recruit new patients. These events are a valuable opportunity for students to engage with the public, enhance their speaking abilities, and practice their TCM skills.
Practice management books, videos, and other valuable business resources are available in the library to help you establish a new career or start a successful practice.
An online database of professional opportunities connect employers with students. Graduating students can search for job openings, space to rent, integrative practice opportunities, and practices for sale.
Five Branches offers alumni and doctoral students the opportunity to promote their practice online. Five Branches Alumni Practitioners can post their profile to receive the benefits of our web-marketing strategies.
Continuing Education courses, and specialization certificates offered by our Extension department, allow alumni to expand the offerings of their practice and increase their knowledge in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Five Branches alumni receive discounts on CEU courses.
The doctoral program provides TCM graduates with a unique opportunity to study with experienced senior faculty from China and the U.S. and to develop advanced TCM knowledge and skills. Five Branches alumni receive discounts towards enrollment in the Postgraduate DAOM Program.
