Clinical Practice & Internship

Clinical practice and internship are key elements in this curriculum. During the academic years, students attend practicum in clinics operated by School of Chinese Medicine of HKBU. In the fifth and sixth year, students spend 12 months in a Chinese Medicine teaching hospital in mainland China or Hong Kong for clerkship training, followed by a 4-month specialised clinical internship.

Honours Project

The purpose of the Honours Project is to give students hands-on experience in a chosen research topic, which includes designing and performing a study, and analysing data.  An equally important purpose is to give students the opportunity to conduct an in-depth investigation in a topic that interests them. Research challenges students to think logically and critically and enhances their ability to observe and apply what they have learned, and at the same time to explore new theories.

Career Opportunities 

Most graduates go on to become Chinese Medicine practitioners, the demand for which is increasing. The licensing of Chinese Medicine practitioners has been enforced in Hong Kong since 2003, and our graduates are expected to meet the most stringent requirements of licensing qualifications. Some graduates may go into postgraduate studies and pursue research careers in local and overseas institutions, and a small proportion of graduates may seek out careers in education, administration in public health sector, or trading in Chinese Medicine.
