BIOL 6536: Clinical Applications of Integrative and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Student Leaders: 
Kristian Georgiev, MD20
Faculty Adviser: 
Dr. Robert Heffron

This elective built for medical students will focus on the theoretical and practical applications of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and how to integrate it in Western practice. We will delve into the background and theory of TCM, explore the basis for common and useful traditional practices through case studies, and get hands-on experiences with techniques such as tongue and pulse diagnosis, acupuncture, and more. Students with or without experience in one of Dr. Heffron's other classes are all encouraged to apply!
