Requisite(s): 99652 Chinese Herbal Formula 2 AND 99584 Clinical Features of Disease
This clinical subject provides students with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) knowledge for female and male reproductive disorders, general surgical diseases and skin diseases. The subject also enables students to understand the key clinical features and current therapy for these diseases in western medicine. After determining that TCM is appropriate for the patient's condition, students differentiate the patterns of disharmony as identified in TCM, decide on the treatment principles and devise a course of treatment.
Students learn to integrate their knowledge of western and Chinese medicine for some common gynaecological, surgical and dermatological diseases. The subject focuses on current therapies in both western and Chinese medicine approaches to these three areas, as well as diagnostic knowledge and skills, and TCM pattern differentiation. In tutorial sessions, clinical case studies, including interviewing patients with relevant diseases and role-play, form an important component of the subject.
