Penn Global Seminar: Exploring Traditional Chinese Medicine
This course will be a broad overview on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a specific form of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). The course will cover introductory principles on TCM theory, common therapies, and efficacy of this practice. The first part of the class will meet on-campus every other week through lectures, discussions, demonstrations with Penn professors and experienced TCM practitioners, and a local field trip in the Philadelphia area for clinical observation. The second part of the course will involve a field trip to China during school break, in which there will be guest lectures by TCM professors and practitioners, clinical observations and immersive experiences. For those who are unable to participate in the China field trip, they will be placed in TCM clinics with TCM doctors as preceptors for observation of TCM practice in the Greater Philadelphia area.
