Overview of the
Medical Qigong 
Practitioner Program Courses

Studying to become a Medical Qigong Practitioner is an integrated step-by-step process. Each class, each internship, and each experience builds on one another – helping you to progress into becoming a more skillful person and practitioner.

Open to all health care professionals, students of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and those interested in Chinese energetic medicine, the IIMQ offers a multi-level certification program designed to teach the theory and practical application of Medical Qigong Therapy.

Emphasis is placed on both analytical/deductive and intuitive approaches. Students comprehend and utilize Medical Qigong Therapy for cultivation, regulation and clinical application. The experiential aspect of the course is well balanced with a solid theoretical foundation.

Medical Qigong Practitioner Program Seminars

The Chinese Medical Qi Gong Practitioner Program with Zander Townend is a 200 hour program, comprised of four 5-day seminars and a final 3 day Clinical Practice and Exam session in Ajax, Ontario.

Students do readings, clinical practice, exam and homework assignments between seminars with a practical and written exam for completion of the certification. Students are welcome (but not required) to participate in an online course component, designed to help students stay current between seminars with their progress (with suggestions for completing the reading assignments), give them access to reviews of in-class exercises and materials, and to interact with the instructor.

Clinical Externship

In the clinical internship, the academic and theoretical knowledge gained in the Medical Qigong courses gets put into practical application. The objective is for the student to become confident in assessing and offering supportive treatment for clients, as well as creating and maintaining accurate clinical records.

After completing “Introduction to Assessment and Supportive Treatments” (Course 2), the student should begin to offer supportive treatment to clients and gain clinical experience.

As the student gains experience and attends more advanced courses their knowledge and abilities will increase, as will their abilities to assess and offer supportive treatment to more challenging cases.

The student is expected to keep complete histories on clients, which include client histories, treatments, and prescription exercises.

Prior to completing their Medical Qigong Practitioner level certification, the student must provide:

  • copies of their clinic log (verifying their clinic practice hours),
  • a sample of patient histories,
  • and case studies (samples will be provided for the student to use as reference).
