The Kootenay Columbia College of Integrative Health Sciences (KCCIHS) is located in the heart of the Kootenay Columbia region of BC , Canada. It is the only institution of its kind in the area, offering courses in:
- Traditional Chinese Medicine Programs
- Acupuncture School
- Registered Massage Therapy Training & Certification
- Holistic Nutrition Program (Certificate & Diploma)
At KCCIHS, though our programs are distinct, they demonstrate a multi-disciplinary approach to health and healthcare. Students enrolled in different programs can benefit from exposure to guest lectures, informal discussion, shared classes in professional development, research, business practice, and treatments from faculty and students enrolled in complementary disciplines. This type of education reflects the modern popularity of multi-disciplinary clinics and creates practitioners who have a natural awareness and understanding of other disciplines.
For over 20 years the college has operated as ACOS, with its specific focus on Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2017, the college expanded to include a Registered Massage Therapy Program and in 2019 college introduced a Holistic Nutrition Program. KCCIHS will continue to diversify its health education offerings over the next few years.
