Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been practised in Asia for thousands of years. Unlike Western medicine, TCM takes a holistic approach to diagnosing and treating illness.
This postgraduate degree is aimed at medical or science graduates who have an interest in TCM and would like to study the subject and its fundamental principles.
The course examines how TCM differs from Western medicine, and how it can be used to complement it. Modern approaches to TCM are covered as well as quality standards for specific herbal remedies and medicines in the context of the current legal framework.
Providing a theoretical grounding and practical training in traditional Chinese diagnosis techniques, acupuncture and medicines is the main objective of the course. It is based on the principles of TCM as practised and taught around the world today, including in China, Japan, Korea, France, the Netherlands and the USA.
