Introduction
World Chinese medicine education is developing vigorously. However, the setting of Chinese medicine courses has taken on an obvious diversity and the core contents are not unified due to the uneven development of Chinese medicine education in different countries. Thus, it is necessary to establishcore courses of Chinese medicine specialty.In May 2009, World Standard of Chinese Medicine Undergraduate (Pre-CMD) Education was published by World Federation of Chinese Medicine Societies (WFCMS) for the regulation of world Chinese medicine education. It is the first international standard in the history of world Chinese medicine education, regulating the essential requirements for graduates of Chinese medicine undergraduate (pre-CMD) education including requirements for knowledge and skills.
Course is a strong measure for the realization of cultivation goal. To promote the achievement of professional cultivation goal of Chinese medicine in Chinese medicine institutions in different countries/areas around the world, we drafted World Core Courses of Chinese Medicine Specialtyon the basis of World Standard of Chinese Medicine Undergraduate (Pre-CMD) Education. In the process of drafting, concrete situation of Chinese medicine education in various countries/areas around the world has been taken into consideration and the education character of Chinese medicine and career demand has been embodied as well.
The courses in the standard have been chosen according to the following principles:1.“Necessity” means that the knowledge should be the main body of theoretical system of a certain course, and should include basic theory, knowledge, and skills of Chinese medicine which must be grasped by clinical Chinese medicine doctors. 2. “Sufficiency” means that the knowledge should meet the demand of Chinese medicine in disease prevention, disease treatment, rehabilitation, and subject inheritance. 3. “Suitability” means that the knowledge should be suitable for the actual need of clinical Chinese medicine in different countries and be extensively used in clinic around the world in line with the applicability of Chinese medical market worldwide. 4. “Acceptance” means that the knowledge should be accepted and put into practice in compliance with the local law of different countries without violating national culture and custom.
The standard provides three curriculum platforms: Courses for Basic Theories and Knowledge of Chinese Medicine, mainly for the training of fundamental knowledge and the cultivation of ability in learning clinical courses of Chinese medicine; Courses for Clinical Knowledge and Skills of Chinese Medicine, mainly for the training of knowledge and the cultivation of ability in disease prevention and the application measures and skills of Chinese materia medica, acupuncture and moxibustion, and tuina etc.; Courses for Excerpt of Chinese Medicine Classics, mainly for the improvement of theoretical attainment and the guidance of clinical practice. Each course has the items of Nature of the Course, Prerequisite Courses, Teaching Objective, Main Content and Reference Hours.
World core courses of Chinese medicine specialty are compulsory courses in teaching plan of Chinese medicine specialty among Chinese medicine educational institutions in different countries/areas around the world. The contents of world core courses of Chinese medicine specialtycan be sub-divided or integrated bythese institutions in accordance with their actual need. Other relevant courses can also be added on the basis of core courses and the feature and development plan of Chinese medicine educational institutions.
