Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM) is China’s premier national university dedicated to advancing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Since its establishment in 1956, BUCM has grown to become an internationally recognized medical university committed to (1) the preservation and practice of TCM, (2) scientific research into its foundations and uses, and (3) the training of new generations of medical professionals skilled in both TCM and Western medicine.
Because we value equally inheritance and innovation, theory and practice, BUCM has created a dynamic environment that emphasizes pedagogical innovation, scientific research, and clinical services, all in keeping with the principles articulated in the University’s motto: to learn from others’ strengths in order to serve others through the virtuous practice of medicine.
