do international students and licensed western doctors like to
attend our short term study program?
answer is that on the one hand, there is no any pure English study
program in China covering the comprehensive TCM courses like basic theory,
diagnostics, acupuncture, tuina, herbs, prescription, even though
there are English study programs in China for the subject of
manipulation of acupuncture, which might cause a partial
understanding to TCM. On the other hand, after attending our short
term study program, you will be offered a very accurate
understanding to the basic knowledge of TCM. This experience will
help you to continue and deepen the study of TCM very smoothly. For
example, many TCM students in the USA and UK could not successfully
complete the two or three years study program there, because they
find TCM is very hard to understand and have to give up the study.
The third, since in China the TCM degree study program (bachelor's
degree) for the international students spend five years and is
taught in Chinese language, this is a hard choice for most
international TCM students.
in general, the purpose of our short term training program is to
offer you very good basic TCM knowledge and to improve your accurate
and clear understanding to TCM knowledge.
The short term training classes are taught in pure English. The
courses in our hospital include acupuncture, moxibustion,
basic theory of TCM, diagnostics, materia medica, prescription,
massage (Tui Na), Qigong, internal medicine, gynaecology,
paediatrics, dermatology, dietary therapy, etc.
