The Midwest College of Oriental Medicine is recognized as the sister college of the Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine (GZTCM) in China. For 31 years the strong bond between the organizations has enabled sharing of curriculum and clinical experiences. Students have the opportunity to participate in an in-patient clerkship at GZTCM’s affiliated hospitals. The internship is offered once per year in the fall or spring. Our goal is to offer the same high level of education at GZTCM to our students in the United States.
Guangzhou University of Traditional Chinese Medicine began enrolling student exchange applicants in 1974.
In 1979, the first short-term courses in Chinese medicine, Chinese Materia Medica, and acupuncture and moxibustion were held at the university.
Since then, over 2500 participants from other countries and regions have attended these courses.
The China Guangzhou International Training Center of TCM was officially founded in 1991.
The center was established by the university, authorized by the State Administration of TCM and is supported by the World Health Organization.
Academic exchange continues between Guangzhou University and other medical colleges and research institutes in more than 50 countries and regions.
