Chinese Herbal Dispensary

Our oriental medicine students have extensive training in traditional Chinese herbal medicine. They learn how to choose the NUHS oriental medicine herbal dispensarymost effective herbal prescriptions for their patients through both classroom study as well as traditional apprentice-style practice under the guidance of seasoned faculty. In the dispensary, they spend hours in hands-on practice in learning how to correctly choose and prepare herbal formulas.

Over one-third of our acupuncture and oriental medicine patients receive herbal medicine prescriptions as part of their treatment plan. National University’s traditional Chinese herbal dispensary carries over 300 raw herbs, allowing us to meet the widest possible range of patient needs. For each prescription, students and clinicians measure and mix the raw herbs by hand into dose-specific take-home packets for herbal teas.

In addition to raw herbs, our MSAc and MSOM interns have access to over 130 granular preparations (powders and granules that can be mixed with food or water, and are sometimes easier for patients to prepare at home), and over 100 patent medications (high quality commercially prepared herbal pills and capsules).
