Chinese Medicine Culture Wall


The Hong Kong Baptist University is the first institution funded by the University Grants Committee to offer higher education in Chinese medicine in Hong Kong. As a result of its hard work for nearly two decades, the School has nurtured more than 1,600 graduates of bachelor's, research postgraduate and master's degree programmes and has offered diploma, certificate and other programmes for nearly 14,000 students.

In order to strengthen ties in the SCM community comprising teachers, students and alumni and harness its strength, the School invited the SCM community to provide Chinese medicine quotes to build a Chinese Medicine Culture Wall to portray their visions and aspirations and promote the culture of Chinese medicine.

The Chinese Medicine Culture Wall was erected on the external wall of the SCM Building at the beginning of the 2016-17 academic year. While the black and white banners of the wall symbolise the Way of Life embodied in the Yin and Yang Theory, the five colours of the plaques, namely white, green, blue, red and yellow, represent respectively the metal, wood, water, fire and earth of the Five Elements Theory employed to explain the structural relationship of the human body, with different shades representing the seasons, which echo the Chinese medicine concept of correspondence between man and the universe. The mural featuring “6020” also serves to celebrate the 60th anniversary of HKBU and herald the upcoming 20th anniversary of SCM.
