Key points:Chinese medical students are teaching Western Medicine techniques, which include acupuncture, in a quest to cure ailments that Western medicine has failed to treat Source: ABC News’ Chinese-language web site Chinese Western Medicine – A study into Chinese Western medicineThe Chinese government’s goal is to give students a better understanding of the health system by teaching Western medicine techniques such as acupuncture, which can be used to treat a variety of diseases, according to the University of British Columbia.
It’s part of a push to create a better sense of self and to understand the health of China, which has been the subject of a number of public health disasters in recent years.
The University of Chinese Medicine has been working on the project since 2013, and it aims to develop the “Chinese Western medicine” to help students understand the real world of medicine.
The school has been looking for ideas for its Western Medicine project, which aims to provide an introduction to the Chinese medical system and to Western medicine, according the university.
“We’re interested in how to create an understanding of a holistic, natural system of medicine, to get students to take on the task of using Western medicine in their own practice,” said Prof Kim Chien-tao, the chief of the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
“It’s an idea that’s based on our understanding of Western medicine and it’s very relevant for Western patients,” he said.
“The idea of using western medicine to treat diseases that Western people have been struggling with is very, very interesting.”
The school also hopes to encourage students to see a doctor if they feel ill, and to work with health workers to provide them with medical help.
Chinese medicine, which is based on Chinese principles, is also being taught at some medical schools in Australia.
Western Medicine, or Western Medicine for short, is an alternative approach to Western medical treatment, according it has been a failure in Western medicine.
It is not the same as Western medicine practised in the West, but Western medicine is based more on Chinese medicine, and there are some Western practitioners who practise it.
“Western medicine is a relatively new and very diverse form of medicine,” Prof Kim said.
The students are studying the Chinese systems of medicine in the same way Western medicine was taught in the west.
“You have a holistic approach to the practice of Western health care, and that’s where we’re coming from,” he explained.
“When you study the Chinese system of health care it has a very specific, structured and structured system of healing, it’s all about taking care of your body, the body and the mind.”
Prof Kim says Chinese students are already familiar with Western medicine concepts, but there are still a lot of questions left unanswered about the system.
“One of the things that’s important is to understand how Western medicine works in China,” he told ABC Radio Perth.
“There are different systems in China, there are different types of medical systems, there’s also a different way of looking at medical problems, and so what we need to be able to get answers to is: how do you know if the Western system is right?”
Prof Kim said Western medicine would have to be better than Chinese medicine to be useful for the treatment of Western diseases.
“So there are a lot more questions than we are now, that we need answers to, and we need the Chinese people to know how to do this,” he added.
