Start a Holistic New Career with Online Classes

The Midwest College of Oriental Medicine is offering distance education courses for those desiring a rewarding career in Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, herbs and massage, the natural choice for a wide range of healthcare issues. The fall quarter begins September 30.

        The biological science portion of the program, traditionally offered on weekday evenings, is now available online as LiveStream hybrid courses. Students also earn internship hours in the college clinic. Midwest College offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition, a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine and a Master’s level certification in Acupuncture.

        Weekday commuting for classes is no longer a problem because with the new distance courses, students come to campus for classes only once a week when they join the LiveStream lecture on the Internet. Each lecture is recorded and uploaded to an educational portal for students to review for the entire quarter.

Midwest College of Oriental Medicine has two locations: 6232 Bankers Rd., Racine, WI 53403 and 1601 Sherman Ave., Evanston, IL 60201. For more information, call Admissions Director Liz Warkentin at 262-554-2010, email or visit
