Summer Course MED 180
MED 180: Integrative East-West Medicine for Health and Wellness
This course is designed to provide an overarching introduction to integrative healthcare, particularly the therapeutic approaches originated from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Students will learn (1) the theoretical underpinnings of integrative medicine and TCM, (2) the management of personal well-being through experiential learning of various therapeutic modalities, and (3) current clinical applications of integrative medicine from practitioners and patients. Topics include: integrative East-West Medicine and its role in prevention and health cultivation; herbs and nutritional supplements; pain management using acupuncture, acupressure, massage and other self-help techniques; as well as maintaining a healthy immune system and reducing inflammation and stress. Hands-on practice and clinical site visits will be incorporated.
This course is open to students of all levels in universities and colleges across California and the U.S. Healthcare professionals interested in expanding their career to integrative medicine will also benefit from the overview offered in this course. International students are welcome to enroll.
