Survey Regarding PCE in TCM and Acupuncture

Feb. 18, 2021

CTCMA Registrants are being asked to complete a short survey about the Pan-Canadian Entry-Level Examinations in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture (PCE) and the recent decision taken by the Canadian Alliance of Regulatory Bodies of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists (CARB-TCMPA) to discontinue their availability in Chinese after October 2021.

The survey is being administered by a third-party Canadian research company to ensure full anonymity for respondents and their answers. It is just one component of a College initiative to obtain as much input from interested stakeholders and other parties as possible to help inform any decisions that might be made regarding the language(s) in which the PCE will be offered going forward.

We will post updates as the process continues.
