The new Prospectus Pack in Qigong and Medical Qigong is now available and provides more detail on all the Medical Qigong courses.

Courses in Medical Qigong.

Certificate in Medical Qigong: Cert.MQG


The Cert.MQG is a part-time modular programme, which comprises 4 modules of 6 days.


Most modules require attendance for 2 or 3 long weekends which are spread fairly evenly throughout the year.

The next Certificate course will start in 2017 and will normally be completed within approximately 2 years.


The course includes theoretical study and practical training. Assessment will include practical and clinical competence in Medical Qigong.

At the end of the Cert.MQG course students will:

Diploma in Medical Qigong: Dip.MQG

This is a two-year part-time programme, comprising 8 modules of 6 days, including theoretical and practical training and assessment of practical and clinical competence in Medical Qigong.

The first year of the Dip.MQG will be identical to the Cert.MQG - the same 4 modules will be studied.

Note: Students who enrol for the Cert.MQG and successfully complete it may, at that stage, chose to enrol for the second year, to complete the Diploma course, providing places are still available.

Who can apply

Those interested in pursuing postgraduate study of Medical Qigong are encouraged to attend one of the ICTCM's introductory Qigong workshops (Health Giving Qigong) and discuss the options with a member of the MQG faculty.

To complete full postgraduate training in Medicial Qigong, you need to already hold a Bachelor's level degree in TCM (the Lic.TCM as taught in the ICTCM is recognised as such).

Those wishing to practice Acupuncture and TCM as well as Medical Qigong are advised to complete the Lic.TCM Course and then do a postgraduate qualification in Medical Qigong. It may be possible to start Qigong studies during the three years of the Lic.TCM.

We now have some Lic.TCM graduates who have completed their Postgraduate Cert.MQG clinic within 6 months of graduating as an Acupuncture TCM specialist and who are thus qualified to treat clients with MQG as well as Acupuncture Moxibustion.

Professional Membership

On successful completion of such MQG qualifications, graduates are automatically eligible to apply for entry to the Professional Register of Traditional Chinese Medicine - Medical Qigong section, and thus to take up a profession as a practitioner of Medical Qigong.
