Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) held a series of activities on Oct 27 for international students interested in Chinese medicine.
More than 100 international students from nine universities in Shanghai participated in the activities to learn about the history and development of TCM.
At the Shanghai Museum of TCM, students learned about the history of TCM through demonstrations of historical treatments and medical devices.
The students showed interest in the various types of Chinese herbal medicine exhibited at the museum and asked many questions.
Students were particularly fascinated by the application of modern technology in acupuncture treatment.
The university prepared regimen meals for the students and taught them about the relationship between organs and specific types of food.
During a lecture on tea culture, students from 40 countries learned about traditional Chinese views on health, medicine, and lifestyle.
