For many decades, we were wondering if there is a place for complementary medicine in Malaysia.
Yes, there now is.
We saw the establishment of Malacca College of Complementary Medicine (MCCM) in 2008 which is in line with Malaysian government policy on Traditional/ Complemenary Medicine (T/CM).
T/CM shall optimally be integrated into Malaysian health care system to achieve a holistic and integrative approach towards enhancing health and quality of life.
MCCM is meant to impart formalised quality education and training to students wanting to become T/CM practitioners while adhering strictly to regulatory and quality assurance standards.
MCCM is affiliated with the University of Natural Medicine in Sante Fe, the United States.
Potential employment for MCCM graduates: wellness centres, companies marketing health products, food supplements and related equipment, health tourism industry,naturopathic centres, anti-smoking and drug addiction centres.
