CSTCM DAOM Program Introduction

CSTCM’s advanced DAOM degree program is based on effective practical methods from the classics of Chinese Medicine. It includes in-depth theory and practical application of Xiaochuan Pan’s Self Consistent System of Classical Chinese Medicine. The Chinese Medicine classics areself-consistent, self-contained, and sempiternal collections of centuries of observation of humanity’s relationship to the universe’s cycles of nature and cosmology. CSTCM deeply appreciates the scholars of the ages and Xiaochuan Pan for their contributions to the study and practice of Chinese medicine from the classics. A self-consistent system means a system that is consistent unto itself (as Chinese medicine is) and is in harmony with the universe as a self-consistent, ever repeating, ever the same, yet constantly evolving system. The wisdom of the ancient sages captured this self-consistent essence and distilled it into Chinese medicine classics. From this viewpoint, they created a medicine to restore their patients’ natural wisdom and energy cycles. Finding harmony and balance within the great cycles of nature is a wisdom of health and healing that persists, pervades, and defines a self-consistent system. We thank Xiaochuan Pan for providing his scholarly efforts and methods from his years of study and practice applying the wisdom found in the Chinese medicine classics and sharing this profound natural science with us.


Our goal at CSTCM is to provide a unique platform and experience for the CSTCM faculty and DAOM students as they undertake this journey into the ancient wisdom of this extraordinary healing art. The following curriculum and course descriptions outline the CSTCM advanced DAOM degree program and how it incorporates the self-consistent system of study and practical application into the program design. This program aims to prepare each graduate to become the best results-oriented practitioner of Chinese medicine they can become. We invite you to partake of this amazing opportunity to deepen your practice, develop your understanding and enjoy the results from this unique healing art.
