The large group recently led by TCMzone from the USA represents a growing interest from practitioners for this kind of clinical training in TCM hospitals in China”.

“TCMzone provided a wonderful experience for my wife, Lesley and myself to invite 20+ of our students to tour and study Chinese medicine in China. We had fine accommodations and experienced the remarkable integration of TCM in one of the leading hospitals in Shanghai where our mornings consisted of inpatient and outpatient hospital rounds with expert TCM doctors and wonderful classes in the afternoon. TCMzone helped plan the perfect program of topics and provided wonderful interpreters. I highly recommend them as the source for such study tours. Everyone had a great and deeply enriching experience.” Michael Tierra, Founder and Director of the East West Course of Planetary Herbology.
