Founding Goals

  Chinese medicine, with a history of over two millennia, has its own independent body of theory and a wealth of clinical experience, which is now esteemed abroad as well as at home. With the influence of Western medicine, the need has arisen to integrate Chinese medicine with Western medicine. The Post-Baccalaureate Chinese Medical School was established in 1984 with the goal of instilling traditional Chinese medical physicians with a solid understanding of modern medicine. This is the only Chinese medical school taking in students who already have bachelor's degrees in other fields.  Our aim is to bring together knowledge from many fields, to keep alive the tradition of Chinese medicine, and to pioneer the integration of Chinese and Western medicine.

Curriculum Planning

Since our aim is to train modern Chinese doctors, the academic courses include traditional Chinese medicine and modern Western medicine.  Students gaining a total of 232 credits upon graduation are awarded a Bachelor’s Degree of Medicine. During the first three years, students have to complete full courses of Chinese and Western medicine.  In the fourth year, they rotate through observation sessions of western medicine at teaching hospitals; then in the fifth year they devote themselves to Chinese medical internship at teaching hospitals.  In addition to the complete Chinese medical courses, students can enhance their studies through Problem-Based Learning and Clinical Skills Training.  A curriculum approach which makes students aware of the limitations perspective places on problem solving and patient treatment choices will lead students to integrate their original knowledge into the realm of Chinese medicine and henceforth to promote the modernization of traditional Chinese medicine. Today’s patients require a culmination of two vastly different yet complementary pools of medical skills and knowledge.
