The Five Elements of Acupuncture Medical Ethics

This course will look at basic medical ethics and how they apply to Acupuncture and Oriental Medical practices. It will cover the five basic principles/areas every practitioner should know. It then goes on to explore fundamental medical ethics including looking at the works of Hippocrates and Sun Si Miao and discussing the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment as well as NCCAOM’s Code of Ethics. And finally, there will be a discussion of real world ethical issues that practitioners need to deal with in their everyday interactions with patients. The goal of this course is to give a basic theoretical background to medical ethics and then make them relevant to one’s practices.

  1. Laura W.

    I would highly recommend this course to all TCM practitioners. Greg presents a new way of thinking (5 elements of ethics) regarding an ethical approach to clinical practice. This model is simple and easily applicable making it very easy to straight away do things within clinic that meet good ethical standards.


    Overall good course explaining most issues concisely.

  3. Michelle C.

    Thanks Greg, I thoroughly enjoyed this course and found it very informative. It is a requirement of the Australian Chinese Medicine Board to complete at least 2hrs CPE related to Ethics each year. In my many years now this has been the most beneficial ethics course I have undertaken.

    Teacher was well-prepared and organized, and also provided ample real-world examples, which was hugely helpful in illustrating the ethical concepts in a real practice.

  14. Simon

    Only issue i had was that I’m in Australia and did not realise this course was rom the USA. However it was still informative and most information applies equally to here. I would also recommend some discussion about changing cultural expectations.
