The Chinese General Hospital and Medical Center offers Traditional Chinese Medicine complementing Western medicine practice through various treatment modalities that have been effectively practiced and applied for more than three centuries. Based on the principles of achieving a balanced state of health (yin and yang), Traditional Chinese Medicine’s goal is to bring the patient back to an optional and balanced state of physical and emotional well-being working side by side with the practices employed by modern Western medicine.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine Department hopes to deliver the highest level of care at par with the world’s standard of Chinese medicine practice. Chinese medicine is now practiced, accepted, and recognized worldwide hand in hand with the practice of modern medicine. Our department strives to uphold these high standards through liaising, networking and conferencing with various internationally recognized and reputable Chinese medicine institutions worldwide. Our Chinese General Hospital College of Medicine teaches and trains future medical doctors a complete four-year curriculum on Traditional Chinese Medicine hand in hand with its Western medicine courses.
