CHINESE MEDICINE PROGRAMME

English Medium Chinese
Medicine Degree Programme In A Malaysian Medical University!

About The Programme

Chinese Medicine (CM) has its origin more than 2500 years ago, greatly influenced by the teachings and written works of great herbalists, acupuncturists, philosophers and physicians. They emphasised man’s relationship to the environment, considering the human body to be a mini universe governed by opposing forces (yin-yang) which kept the body working in balance and harmony. In health, the opposing life forces of yin and yang were in balance while in illness there was an imbalance. CM studies the person in health and disease from the aspects of prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation in a holistic manner. The range of treatments in CM include herbal therapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, tuina, bone and spine manipulations, dietary therapy, exercise therapy like qigong and taijiguan.

Currently, there is a worldwide trend to integrate certain Chinese medicine practices like acupuncture and herbal remedies to complement the management of pain and reduce side effects of drugs used to treat chronic diseases.

A WORD FROM
THE PROGRAMME DIRECTOR

Chinese Medicine is a holistic medicine consisting of health preservation and healing practices which is originated from China but is still in practice today. Malaysia is moving towards integrated practice in healthcare and has enforced the Traditional and Complementary Medicine Act (T&CM Act) 2016 since 1 August 2016 with 15 government hospitals providing T&CM services. In line with the national policy, the Chinese Medicine programme in IMU is delivered in an integrative manner, where students will acquire knowledge from both Chinese Medicine and western medicine. By delivering our programme in English, we open the doors to everyone who is keen to learn Chinese Medicine without the constraint of needing to first master Mandarin. Through such studies, students will equip themselves with evidence-based medical knowledge to deal with future challenges locally or internationally as a healthcare provider.
