Bachelor of Chinese Medicine and Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Biomedical Science of the Hong Kong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), launched in 1998, is the first full-time undergraduate Chinese medicine (CM) programme funded by the University Grants Committee in Hong Kong.
The aim of this double-degree programme is to equip students with a comprehensive and practical understanding of Chinese medicine. The ultimate goal is to train a new generation of Chinese medicine practitioners with the ability to integrate modern science and technology with Chinese medicine principles on a scientific basis for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
This is a 6-year full-time double degree programme, with 15-month internship training, and an Honours Project. The curriculum of the programme encompasses extensive courses in Chinese medicine as well as courses in biomedical and clinical Western medicine, in an approximate ratio of 7:3.
Instructors in this programme use diversified teaching tools and activities, including multimedia teaching aids, case study, group discussion, and laboratory practice, medicinal herb field trips, and hospital visits to achieve outcome-based teaching and learning. To uphold the spirit of “Whole Person Education” as advocated by the University, 31 credits courses in general education are included in the new curriculum.
