Chinese Medicine Schools and the Courses they Teach

Asian Medicine
If you are seeking a distinctive health care education, then perhaps you might consider enrolling in a Chinese medicine school. Today, more than ever, natural healing arts are gaining headway in mainstream medicine. Chinese medicine is not new, as some might believe; as a matter of fact, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been around for centuries. Despite Chinese medicine often being deemed as "alternative medicine" here in the United States, in China it is an essential part of the overall health care system.

As time has evolved, so has the progression and expansion of Chinese medicine schools. The key component to the success of TCM schools is chiefly due to their comprehensive educational systems that promote the continued, collective wisdom of ancient healing arts.

Rooted in a variety of philosophical origins, Chinese medicine curriculums entail fundamentals about yin and yang with respect to Qi (life force). Common coursework that is offered at Chinese medicine programs include Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, and traditional oriental medicine.

Within the lesson structure, students will gain in-depth knowledge and skills about physiology and pathology, anatomy, psychology, preventive medicine, clinical practice, and other relevant studies. In addition, students will learn about the in-depth history of Chinese medicine and how age-old practices are still effectively used today.

Providing diploma programs, Chinese medicine schools extend non-traditional health care education about herbs and their effectiveness on treating disease, health disorders and other ailments. Students will also learn how to properly use nutrition to prevent illness and maintain overall health and wellbeing.

In addition to diplomas, a number of Chinese medicine colleges also offer Bachelor and Master Degree programs. Prospective students should review individual school offerings to explore potential educational opportunities, as well as curriculums. Some degree programs involve all of the above courses in addition to extensive lessons in alchemy, Tuina, Daoist philosophy, Qigong, and anthropology.

Students who have successfully met all educational and training requirements, and have completed their Chinese medicine program, may go on to practice acupuncture, chiropractics, or massage therapy; or they may become Qigong healers and teachers, Daoist counselors, and of course, practitioners of Chinese medicine.
