Minority Medicines

It is almost essential for students or visitors to get out of the capital city of Kunming and get a chance to experience the truly outstanding natural beauty and ethnic minority towns that make Yunnan such a unique, diverse and fascinating part of China in which to study. Field excursions to Yunnan’s minority areas are an integral part of our programs, enabling students to experience and learn about the indigenous healing practices of Yunnan’s many different minority groups, including Bai herbal medicine, Naxi Dongba shamanism and the major tradition of Tibetan Medicine.

We believe our courses, including readings, lectures and hands-on practice alongside TCM physicians to be a unique and unparalleled cultural and medicinal learning opportunity.
