Dr. Cai to Present Paper at International Conference in China
NUHS’ Dr. Hui Yan Cai has written an article titled “Education and Clinical Practices of TCM in the USA,” which was recently accepted for presentation by the 5th International Conference of Chinese Medicine. The conference will be held on November 18, 2011 in Guangzhou, China. Dr. Cai will fly to China to present the article in the Chinese language.
In addition to serving as a professor on NUHS’ acupuncture and oriental medicine faculty, Dr. Cai has also been a non-salaried visiting professor for Guangzhou Medical University (GMU) of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) since 2009.
The paper considers the development of TCM in education and clinical practices, especially as applied to PhD programs in China offered to students from the USA.
Dr. Cai gave faculty response to eight PhD students of GMU from the USA, who comprised the first PhD class that GMU opened to English speaking students who held a master’s degree from the USA.
