Professional Associations

As this is an entirely new qualification, this course will first go through the same rigorous two-year accreditation process with the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) that we have undertaken with all of our other successfully-accredited courses.

The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia accredits providers and programs in the field of Chinese Medicine.

Although the Chinese Medicine Board has accredited Endeavour College as a registered provider, the Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) has not yet been professionally accredited by the Chinese Medicine Board. Endeavour College has an application before the Chinese Medicine Board and a decision regarding professional accreditation of the Bachelor of Health Science (Chinese Medicine) is expected in early 2024.
