12th Annual Canadian Oriental Medical Symposium


The Canadian Oriental Medical Symposium (COMS) returns for its 12th year to picturesque Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada on March 26-29, 2015. COMS brings you exciting lectures on topics both practical and theoretical, to expand your existing knowledge and introduce new skills and approaches for your clinical practice.

Warm up to COMS by attending one of our Pre-Symposium events, and learn directly from a world-class instructor in an intimate classroom setting. Our Symposium format allows you to learn and connect with our entire lineup of speakers. Each morning is comprised of hour-long presentations by each speaker, and then in the afternoon, smaller breakout sessions allow you to delve deeper into your topic of choice with individual speakers.

COMS also has the distinction of being the only TCM/Acupuncture conference with a dual track for both Human and Veterinarian practitioners. This is a rare opportunity for practitioners from both professions to interact and share information, which has resulted in exchanges that validate the cross-species effectiveness of TCM / Acupuncture modalities.

Outside of the conference room you can engage with the suppliers of the industry’s highest quality products, or shop the Eastern Currents Pop-Up Shop and discover new and exciting products to take back to your clinic!

COMS is your opportunity to connect with old friends, make new ones, and expand your community of like-minded practitioners. Morning prize giveaways, spontaneous surprises, and multiple moments of inspiration all contribute to the convivial ambience that COMS is famous for!
