CHIN MEDICINE

Short Description

This six-year programme consists of pre-clinical study (4.5 years) and clinical training (1.5 years).

In the Pre-clinical Programme (4.5 years), students have to complete both required and elective courses including subjects in Chinese medical concepts and principles of Chinese medicine application, basic medical sciences, Chinese medicine classics and history, specialties in Chinese medicine and clinical training. Clinical Training sessions in form of bed-side teaching are offered during the term-time and the summer vacation.

The clinical programme extends over 1.5 years. The first study year provides students with teaching in clinical settings of clinics and wards in a Chinese medicine hospital in the Mainland China. Clinical training will cover various specialties in Chinese medicine including internal medicine, acupuncture and bone setting. Students will rotate among attachments to various clinical departments and write reports on case histories of selected topics. During the last half-year, students will receive advanced clinical training in one or two selected specialties by attaching to a Chinese medicine hospital in the Mainland or a specialty clinic in Hong Kong.

Upon satisfactory completion of the programme, a Bachelor of Chinese Medicine degree will be conferred. Graduates will then be qualified to sit for the Chinese Medicine Practitioners Licensing Examination conducted by the Chinese Medicine Council of Hong Kong. Students who pass the examination are eligible to become a registered Chinese Medicine Practitioner in Hong Kong.
