Diplomate of Canonical Chinese Medicine (DCCM) – North America, April 2022- January 2024
Transmitting the Full Potential of East Asian Medicine
For over a decade, ICEAM has offered one of the most complete & systematic training programs available to practitioners outside of China. The DCCM program provides clinicians with the rare opportunity to transform their practice by accessing the classics, or canons, that form the foundation of East Asian medicine. Our graduates go on to become outstanding practitioners and renown herbalists united by their passion for clinical excellence and trust in the foundational principles of the Shang Han Za Bing Lun.

“One of the best decisions of my life…This is a system. You learn the system, you learn the pulses, and you will be an amazing herbalist.
You’ll be able to help anyone who walks through your door.”
-Ginger Michels, LAc, A Touch of Ginger
Why this Program?
East Asian Medicine is exploding in popularity in the West, and yet many practitioners struggle to build busy practices and consistently affect profound change for their patients. Why?
The current model of training is academically rich but inconsistent in clinical application. It is wide but not deep. Many practitioners are bogged down by a lack of structure in their approach and the amorphous nature of their TCM education. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
What if you were able to think on your feet, prescribing quickly and with confidence? What if you no longer felt overwhelmed with complex cases, and became the kind of herbalist other health providers referred to? What if you could get the kind of intensive training and support that was once only available through traditional discipleship in a lineage-based system? What if the great Han dynasty classics, far from being obsolete as some claim, could actually form the foundation of a busy modern practice?
The DCCM program was developed to meet to this urgent opportunity to revive the full potential and efficacy of East Asian medicine by reconnecting to its roots.
The Tian Lineage® pulse – finally! a clear and simple pulse style that quickly leads you to the required formula with precision.
Modular formula system – maintain a full canonical pharmacy of just 60 herbs when you know how to properly dose and combine Shang Han Lun formulas.
Complex cases – problem solve without overwhelm using the 5 element & 6 conformation models of pathology and physiology as outlined in the classics.
Modifying with ease – use the clear rules of pathophysiology and modular formulas to customize throughout the course of treatment.
What to do when things go wrong – adjust course with confidence and learn quickly from what isn’t working.
A network of support – when you’re stuck, the ICEAM family provides support and feedback you can’t get anywhere else.

“I feel much more confident now. I am frequently brought complex and challenging cases and am very grateful to have a full schedule with a waitlist..”
-Dr. Andrea Hansen, DCM, Wildroots Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture Clinic
How Does it Work?
This training It is delivered in a series of 17 live weekend seminars over the course of 2.5 years with a special emphasis on the Shang Han Lun and the Jingui Yaolue. No clinical specialty is left unaddressed, and the successful participant will be able to master the true classical practice of Chinese medicine for greater applicability and efficacy in modern clinical settings. 13 weekends will be taught online, while 4 practicum weekends (pulse & abdominal diagnosis) will be held in person in New Orleans, Chicago, and Atlanta.
The program is organized into three modules:
Module I: Canonical Foundations (5 seminars)
Module II: The Shanghan Lun (6 seminars)
Module III: The Jingui Yaolue (6 seminars)
Additionally, students will be allowed access to the ICEAM virtual community where case studies are discussed and senior practitioners respond frequently to questions.
A final exam for each seminar must be passed in order to graduate. Successful graduates will be certified by ICEAM as Diplomates in Canonical Chinese Medicine. Diplomates are eligible to enter into the Clinical Fellowship program (FICEAM®) and/or begin taking Advanced Training Seminars.
You have a strong sense of how powerful Chinese medicine could be and you’ve had some great wins with patients, but you don’t know how to get consistent results. You’d like to be the kind of practitioner who confidently sends each patient home with a great custom formula. Instead, you often spend hours pouring through books and online forums researching complicated cases just to fall back on a patent remedy. You’ve grown weary of feeling like you’re constantly flailing or don’t have adequate guidance. Maybe you’ve even given up on herbs all together and turned to Western supplements. You’ve tried taking some helpful courses here and there, but mixing and matching systems still leaves you confused. You’re a passionate, committed clinician who could help many more patients if you just had a clear system that got results and gave you confidence.
Like many of our diplomates (including Collin himself), you have a sense even in school that your TCM education is just the beginning of your learning journey. You aspire to a busy, meaningful career and want the structure, support, and teachings that will make that possible. Maybe you have a Classically trained supervisor in clinic who just seems more effective and busier than the rest. Maybe you’ve taken a class on the Classics that peaked your interest in where Chinese medicine all began. Or maybe you’re just not getting all the answers you’d hoped for in school. Either way, you’re willing to invest time and energy for the ability to quickly effect positive change for your patients.
You study/practice massage, ayurveda, folk herbalism, or other traditional therapies. The philosophy and diagnostic clarity of Chinese medicine has either peaked your interest or actually changed your life and you want to go deeper. You might not practice Chinese medicine, but you see how learning a complete system of diagnosis, physiology, and prescription from the ground up could radically expand your studies, your practice, and your ability to case for those around you.
Dr. Versluys is one of the very few Westerners to have received his full medical training in China. He spent a total of twelve years at the Chinese medical universities of Wuhan, Beijing and Chengdu, where he pursued his BA, MAand PHD degrees in Chinese medicine. In 1999, Dr. Versluys met his ultimately lifelong teacher, Dr. Zeng Rongxiu 曾榮修, under whom he trained in traditional Shanghan Lun discipleship for 13 years. This consolidated and strengthened his passion for the Han-dynasty canonical style of Chinese herbal medicine as presented in the Shanghan Lun and Jingui Yaolue, and as practiced in the Tian Lineage.
It continues to be Dr. Versluys’ life work to discover and reconstruct the clinical practice and theoretical underpinnings of the Tian family style of Canonical Formulas.
