What Are Students Say

A few words

Letter from James Saper, Class of 2002I transferred to Oshio college in my second year, looking for smaller class sizes and an administration that put student’s interests at the forefront of their decisions. I was happy to gain this and much more at Oshio. I had the opportunity to learn from faculty with strong academic credentials and extensive clinical knowledge. The small class size meant that individualized attention was given to students and that the school had a supporting learning environment. My year was the first to write the Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner board exams. Being the first time this exam was offered, there was a great deal of uncertainty as to what to expect. Under the guidance of Dr. Yin and the Oshio faculty, my year qualified for this exam and I successfully passed it on my first attempt. In addition, drawing on the new knowledge and skills given to me by the Oshio faculty, I had the confidence to start up my own clinic. The instructors were able to translate theory and book learning into clinically relevant information and prepare me for the ‘real world’. I will remember Dr. Yin’s integrity, depth of knowledge and encouragement as an integral part of my learning experience.

Letter from Adam Fulmore, R.Ac. Class of 2002 My experience studying at Oshio College has been a great one! I feel that the professors are not only knowledgeable and skilled, but kind and caring in their practice and teachings. They promote an excellent learning environment by giving and sharing their clinical experiences, being excellent role models and making the TCM classic material understandable. The class sizes for lecture and student clinic are small, hence giving lots of one on one time with Doctors and Superisors. I know I will feel very confident to practice TCM and pass the CTCMA liscensing exam after my time is finished at Oshio. Thank you Oshio ~ Jill MacLeod, 2nd year studentOshio College has been a wonderful place for me to learn and I am grateful for all it has to offer. I have great teachers with whom I can develop close relationships because of small class sizes. Our closely knit student community fosters support rather than competition. Dr. Yin and Dr. Hu, who run the school, are dedicated to their work and carefully look after the students’ best interests. I am delighted to have found a school with such a cooperative atmosphere and high quality of education.

Just a short note thanking you and Oshio College for the excellent educational opportunity in TCM. I did not realize how much I learned at Oshio College until I opened my practise. It is because of Oshio College and the great teachers that I am able to treat my patients with confidence. Many of my patients believe that I have been practising for years. I have had comments from patients who have been seeing acupuncturists for most of their life; “that I am the most skillful acupuncturist they have seen”. If you can believe that. I am also thankful for Oshio Colleges’ teachings, because as your student I was able to challenge the B.C. Licensing Examination after only 2 1/2 years of TCM schooling and pass the very difficult exam. This allowed me to begin practising immediately upon graduating. I appreciate the dedication and encouragement from all of the staff at Oshio College. Thank you very much for providing me with the knowledge and skills, a great start in my new career. Stephen Simonis, B.A. R.Ac.
