Students take part in exchange activities in mainland China

3 September 2015


As the saying goes, “It is better to travel ten thousand miles than to read ten thousand books,” BCM and BPharm students joined the academic and cultural exchange tours organised by a number of mainland universities in the summer of 2015.  Students participated in an array of activities, including talks by experts, visits to Chinese medicine hospitals and universities, practicum in hospitals as well as volunteer service for the local community.  They returned not only with a deepened knowledge of Chinese medicine but also a better understanding of the culture of the places they visited. The host universities included Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Hunan University, Zhongshan School of Medicine of Sun Yat-sen University, Hunan University of Chinese Medicine, Fujian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Changchun University of Chinese Medicine and Inner Mongolia Medical University.
