The Kootenay Columbia College of Integrative Health Sciences (KCCIHS), formerly the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences (ACOS), is a well-established school with over 20 years of Private Training Institutes Branch (PTIB) accreditation. This standing means that our programs, instructors, and facilities are all government-approved and regulated and that our students are eligible for student loans. Our Traditional Chinese Medicine graduates have successful practices all over the world and KCCIHS is renowned for its comprehensive educational programs and its rigorous academic standards.
The Kootenay Columbia College of Integrative Health Sciences is located in the heart of the Kootenay Columbia region of BC , Canada. Offering courses in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Registered Massage Therapy, and a Holistic Nutrition Program, it is the only institution of its kind in the area.
At KCCIHS our programs are distinct and demonstrate a multi-disciplinary approach to health and healthcare. Students enrolled in all of our programs 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 operated as ACOS, with its specific focus on Traditional Chinese Medicine. In 2017 the college recently expanded to include a Registered Massage Therapy Program and a Holistic Nutrition Program. KCCIHS will continue to diversify its health education offerings over the next few years.
KCCIHS now has 3 central locations in downtown Nelson, the historic Baker Street Nelson Trading Company and Burns buildings, and the modern facility at the Nelson Commons adjacent to the new Kootenay Co-op Store.
