Why study the 10358NAT Advanced Diploma of Integrative Complementary Medicine at CCM?

The 10358NAT Advanced Diploma of Integrative Complementary Medicine program appeals to students because they get the broadest possible training. The courses empower students to work as complementary medicine practitioners that can offer solutions that embrace both the physical body and the mind.

Training in Naturopathy and Chinese Medicine has become quite specialised and focused on physical wellbeing, largely ignoring the driving force of the mind. Likewise, counselling approaches often ignore the body. Our courses combine all these approaches – providing a unique and complete integration of the very best of complementary medicine.

Who is the course for?

Our Integrative Complementary Medicine courses are relevant to anyone who has an interest in complementary medicine practices and wishes to help those who are suffering in their health or search for meaning in their daily lives. It will appeal to those who are torn between choosing specific techniques to study, as the course combines aspects of various techniques, treatments and theories. It will also appeal to those wanting to begin working in clinic after just two years.

DUAL DIPLOMA OPTION AND ARTICULATION PATHWAYS

Students completing the 10358NAT Advanced Diploma of Integrative Complementary Medicine (ICM) have the option of also graduating with a 10594NAT Diploma of Mind Body Medicine by completing one extra subject. The 10358NAT Advanced Diploma of Integrative Complementary Medicine has an articulation pathway into five different Degrees at Endeavour College of Natural Health. The degrees that may be studied and the credit that is given in recognition of the study in this course are:

Bachelor of Health Science (Naturopathy) – 36/38 credit points out of 128;
Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) – 32 credit points out of 96;
Bachelor of Health Science (Acupuncture) – 32 credit points out of 128;
Bachelor of Health Science (Myotherapy) – 30 credit points out of 96;
Bachelor of Complementary Medicine – 30 credit points out of 48.

The levels of credit above equate to a little less or a little more than one year’s full-time study. For example, a graduate of 10358NAT Advanced Diploma of Integrative Complementary Medicine may apply to enrol in the Bachelor of Complementary Medicine, and receive 30 credit points of the 48 units in the degree. This means they will only need to complete the remaining 18 points. Graduates who articulate from CCM must study a minimum of one third (1/3) of their degree with Endeavour College, irrespective of the total credit points awarded.

What this means is that an ICM graduate can be working while studying towards any one of the above five degrees.

SEE WHAT OUR GRADUATES SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE

Watch Emma Sternberg, a CCM graduate and successful practicing Kinesiologist on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, talks about her experience.

The college really is at the cutting edge area of health. It’s quiet frankly an education that is second to none.

NICK MOSS

I started studying with CCM when I was already working as a Psychotherapist when I realised I needed more than simply ‘Talk Therapy’ to support my clients needs. In my prior training we had not really explored Expressive Therapies or the power role of the Transpersonal but CCM offered the perfect integration of both.

LEONA DAWSON

The Transpersonal Counselling Advanced Diploma course has changed my lifestyle, my relationships and my personal and professional goals in life. I now teach Yoga with a different and improved perspective and hold space for my students to incorporate yogic techniques while maintaining a connection to their heart and embracing their own unique rhythm.

CATH BROWN

When I decided to study Kinesiology, it was important to me that I had the best education possible. I did a lot of research and decided that the College of Complementary Medicine was the only option.

LIESL FRANK

The incredible camaraderie and sense of community encouraged at CCM goes beyond the classroom to faculty management and administration. I haven’t experienced this sense of belonging at any other college and found that it made learning so much more enjoyable and valuable.
