About

This program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to study Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) alongside seasoned professionals in the field in the bustling city of Beijing. Within the ancient Chinese capital city ofBeijing, over 18 million inhabitants dwell. Although western medicine is practiced in China, you will find that most of these citizens also rely heavily on TCM. Contact with western medicine has not displaced TCM; in fact, you will encounter western medicine and TCM being practiced side-by-side during your stay. Currently utilized as a complementary medical system in China, TCM consists of a range of medicinal practices that developed over thousands of years including herbal medicine, acupuncture and massage therapy. This program will focus on herbal medicine, which is becoming an increasingly popular method of treatment in the West. Students enrolled in the program will experience field trips to herbal farms, TCM factories, hospitals, and community practice sites where they will come across doctors prescribing and dispensing herbal medicines.
