Non-western medicine is used as an alternative to Western medicine, and it’s the most popular specialty.
But as the profession of medicine continues to be increasingly dominated by Western medicine practitioners, it’s becoming more difficult for non-Western doctors to be accepted.
We spoke to 10 non-western doctors to get their take on why they’re leaving Western medicine.1.
I work in the US.
I’ve been working in the field for almost a decade now.
I am a medical student, and I am one of the most prolific non- Western physicians in the United States.
I have published more than 200 articles and have lectured about non- western medicine at over 200 universities.
I was honored to be invited to speak at a conference in Australia, and a number of my fellow physicians were very supportive.2.
I used to work in Germany.
I’m a practicing physician in the state of Baden-Württemberg, Germany, and have been practicing non-wethe medical medicine for almost 20 years.
I first learned about non Western medicine when I was working at a clinic in a nursing home, and my doctor told me about the American Medical Association’s position on the need to avoid western medicine.
I went to the American College of Physicians and Medical Colleges, and they had a policy on non-Wethe medical care that was similar to my own.
I applied for membership, and soon after I was given a membership card.
I then went to Europe, where I was able to travel to places like the Netherlands and Austria, where doctors were very accepting of non-American doctors.3.
I worked in India.
When I worked at a hospital in New Delhi, India, I was one of two non- American doctors in a room with a large group of patients.
They were a very small group, and we were not invited to the meeting because they were too small.
I thought, Why should we be there?
It was just a very strange situation.4.
I studied medicine in China.
I had a doctorate in medicine and had worked in a clinic for many years.
When we moved to Beijing, I applied to join the hospital, and the doctor in charge asked if I was interested in taking the same position in Beijing.
I said yes.
It was my first time in China, and that was when I met a Chinese physician who I have always admired.
We have become good friends and have continued to work together, even though I have left the clinic.5.
I lived in Europe and the US for the past several years.
In Europe, I became more comfortable in the English-speaking world.
I now speak a mixture of English and French, and there are a lot of English-language publications in Europe, and this makes me feel more comfortable as a doctor.
I do not want to be perceived as a foreigner in Europe.6.
I live in the UK.
In England, I am now working as a private practice doctor.
The main difference between my medical practice and the Western medicine profession is that I work with people with a Western medical background, such as dentists, pharmacists, cardiologists, podiatrists, and radiologists.
I teach non-European medicine, as I do with Western medicine in general.7.
I study medicine in Japan.
I joined a medical school in Tokyo, Japan, and then became an orthopedic surgeon.
After the war, I had no choice but to become a doctor, and for about six years I worked as a consultant to the Japanese government.
I saw the country through a different lens than the Western world.8.
I still work in China with my Chinese patients.
I started my first practice in Beijing, and after about two years, I moved to Shanghai, where there are more Western physicians.
It is very difficult to be seen as a non-West.9.
I use Chinese medicine.
As a Chinese-American, I used Chinese medicine as my primary care doctor.
Chinese medicine has become more popular as a second option, and Chinese-Americans are much more accepting of Western medicine than the average Westerner.10.
I feel that the Westerners are taking over medicine.
When a Westerner wants to practice medicine in a Chinese hospital, it is often because the Westerner does not speak Chinese, or because the patient is in a wheelchair, or is deaf, or the patient needs more advanced care.
However, I feel this is changing.
I believe there is a growing acceptance of non Western medical care, and patients are being more open and accommodating of non western doctors.
