Chinese Medicine 中醫學

CHIN MEDICINE

Short Description

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

The pre-clinical programme extends over four and a half academic years. Students are required to complete courses including subjects in basic medical and life sciences, principles of Chinese medicine applications, Chinese medical concepts and theories, Chinese medicine classics, and various specialties in Chinese medicine (such as internal medicine, gynaecology, paediatrics, orthopaedics and acupuncture).

The last one and a half years of study is devoted to bedside training. Students will spend time at Chinese medicine hospitals practicing in various specialty wards. Considering the lack of Chinese medicine hospitals in Hong Kong at the moment, we have obtained full support from the Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the Shenzhen Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which will provide clinical training programmes and hospital facilities for our students.

In addition to the training in hospital settings, students will attend out-patient clinics of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong in order to gain practical experience as general practitioners in treating common diseases. Each student will attach to a clinic under mentorship by qualified Chinese medicine practitioners.

Graduates of this programme are qualified to take the Chinese Medicine Practitioners Licensing Examination conducted by the Hong Kong Chinese Medicine Council and become registered Chinese Medicine Practitioners if they pass the examination.
