Elective Rotation: Traditional Chinese Medicine and Primary Care in China

Contact: Sara Martin

Location: Beijing, China

Spent two weeks in Beijing, China at the Yuetan Community Health Service Center. Founded in 1996, it was the first primary care clinic in China. Given that primary care is relatively new in China, it was very interesting to see the ways in which our two systems differ. They have done a tremendous job of integrating Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into their primary care clinics, and I spent most of my time shadowing TCM practitioners to learn the foundational principles behind TCM.
