I have just found out through the grapevine that the registration fees to join the mandatory Chinese Medicine board of Australia are likely to cost around $475 per year.
This is in addition to our annual insurance policies (which now need increased cover to join the board) and our annual association fees.
Is anyone else out there furious about the introduction of this mandatory financial burden??

You have one fee for joining plus fee for association with this board. Burocrasy exists not to resolve problem but to keep it as it is. If yu need to build the house you ask builder to do so, but first you need burocrats to give ou permission to built . I have set enquiry to show me expenses required to approve documents already approved by Australian law.

I have registration and happily let it go as in my personal opinion the profession has become unviable financially and frankly a pain to do. There is Very little financial return on the effort needed to sustain practice.
Would be interesting to see some professional drop out statistics since registration as I suspect they would be high.
Anyhow I have said enough about why I think the profession is a poor university choice in many posts.
If your teaching it or selling courses on how to make your acupuncture business thrive then this is a viable area. Being in Practice not so!
This is a regulated hobby... Period.
Personal opinion only but I know the industry statistics pretty much confirm it.
