Oriental Medicine Practitioners
To prepare yourself for a career as an Oriental medicine
practitioner, you need to learn to understand the human body, mind,
and spirit. Courses in science, particularly biology, will help you
prepare for medical courses ahead. Psychology, philosophy,
sociology, and comparative religion classes can help you learn
about the mind and spirit. Physical education and sports training
will help you prepare for the exercise and massage aspects of
Oriental medicine. English, drama, debate, and speech can help you
develop the communication skills you will need to relate to your
clients and to build your business. Most Oriental medicine
practitioners are self-employed, so you will also need business,
math, and computer skills.
