Applying for accreditation

Seeking accreditation of a program of study

If you are an education provider and wish to apply for an accreditation assessment of your program of study, please contact the Program Accreditation Team to receive an application form and to arrange a due date for submission of your application.

Accreditation guidance material

All education providers wishing to seek accreditation of a Chinese medicine program of study will be assessed against the Accreditation standards for Chinese medicine and the Professional capabilities for registered Chinese medicine practitioners.

The Accreditation standards provide guidance on the evidence to be presented by education providers seeking accreditation of a Chinese medicine program. This includes:

  • the expected information for each standard and criterion to be presented
  • explanatory notes for each standard, to help common understandings between accreditation assessment teams and education providers about the Accreditation Committee’s requirements
  • a glossary of key terms used, and
  • a list of acronyms.

Accreditation process

The Accreditation Committee's process for accreditation assessments is outlined in the Guidelines for accreditation of education and training programs (the Guidelines). 

When preparing an accreditation application, education providers should read the Guidelines alongside the Accreditation standards for Chinese medicine, and the Professional capabilities for registered Chinese medicine practitioners.

Accreditation fees

For information on accreditation assessment fees, please visit the accreditation fee information webpage.

Internal review process

If the Accreditation Committee decides not to accredit a program of study, or decides to revoke accreditation of a program, the education provider may apply for an internal review of the Accreditation Committee's decision. The internal review process provides more information.
