Introduction

Goal

Combine modern medical knowledge to research and develop traditional Chinese medicine

 

Brief history

In 1975 He Renhao, director of the department of Chinese medicine, planned to establish the Chinese medicine research institute to recruit graduate students for the master's degree program.

In 1988 the Chinese medicine research institute doctoral program was jointly established together with the Chinese pharmacy research institute. In 1992 it officially changed to the Chinese medicine research institute doctoral program, which now is this institute and the Chinese pharmacy research institute doctoral program. The goal has always been to recruit talents with a medical background.

In 2006 our institute began to recruit outstanding talents with non-physician background to do fundamental Chinese medicine research.

From the year 2009 the research institute of Chinese medicine and the Department of Chinese medicine have merged into the department of Chinese medicine with a bachelor, master and doctoral program. The enrolment for research institute doctoral program has been divided into four groups according to the research fields (Chinese medicine history and literature group, clinical medicine group, molecular medicine group and medical engineering group).

From the year 2010 the enrolment for the doctoral program has been divided into three groups according to the research field (Chinese medicine history literature group, traditional Chinese medicine clinical medicine group, and basic Chinese medicine group). The master's program was implemented in the academic year 2011.
