Foreigners visit Shanghai Museum of TCM to get closer to the development of TCM. 

More than 100 foreigners in Shanghai attended an open day at the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) on May 28.

The event introduced them to TCM, traditional Chinese culture as well as the international education curriculum of the university.

Xu Jianguang, the principal of the university, delivered a welcome speech in English via video to the attendees, providing details of the development of the university’s international education.

The foreigners then attended a lecture and consulted teachers on the university's degree courses, non-degree training and related vocational development.

They also learned about acupuncture treatment and tuina, a traditional, massage-like body therapy.
