China Admissions now offers you the opportunity to study traditional Chinese medicine at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Embarking on a course of study in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) offers a range of personal and professional benefits. A program in TCM gives students a broad base of knowledge, diagnostic skills and an understanding of the subtleties of therapies used by practitioners of this ancient system of health care. In recent years, there’s been a rising interest among international students in obtaining credentials in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) from China. The Chinese government has even introduced a 15-year plan to ensure the continued growth of the TCM sector, aiming for it to provide 30 percent of the medical industry’s gross output by 2020.

Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of the first traditional Chinese medicine colleges in China. Ever since its establishment, the SHUTCM has been committed to the philosophy of pursuing “excellence rather than size, distinctiveness rather than inclusiveness and use rather than fame”. This is a wonderful opportunity to earn a bachelors degree in one of the most prestigious traditional Chinese medicine college.
