Why do international students and licensed western doctors
like to attend our short term study program?
The answer is that on the one hand, there is no any pure English
study program in China covering the comprehensive TCM courses
like basic theory, diagnostics, acupuncture, tuina, herbs,
prescription, even though there are English study programs in
China for the subject of manipulation of acupuncture, which
might cause a partial understanding to TCM. On the other hand,
after attending our short term study program, you will be
offered a very accurate understanding to the basic knowledge of
TCM. This experience will help you to continue and deepen the
study of TCM very smoothly. For example, many TCM students in
the USA and UK could not successfully complete the two or three
years study program there, because they find TCM is very hard to
understand and have to give up the study. The third, since in
China the TCM degree study program (bachelor's degree) for the
international students spend five years and is taught in Chinese
language, this is a hard choice for most international TCM
So in general, the purpose of our short term training program is
to offer you very good basic TCM knowledge and to improve your
accurate and clear understanding to TCM knowledge.
The short term training classes are taught in pure English. The
courses in our hospital include acupuncture, moxibustion, basic
theory of TCM, diagnostics, materia medica, prescription,
massage (Tui Na), Qigong, internal medicine, gynaecology,
paediatrics, dermatology, dietary therapy, etc.

medicine now, but unfortunately, their time schedules or
financial budgets have prevented them from coming here to learn

by yourself at home. We offer you English textbooks,
A01 to A14 published by Shanghai TCM University Press.
