Description
The Oriental medicine is increasingly used in medical treatment in conjunction with the Western medical health care system in our country. As Oriental medicine and Western medicine are based on different scientific systems, there is no educational curriculum of Oriental medicine in Western medical school education. This is a report on pre- or post-graduation educational programs of traditional Oriental medicine in The University of Tokushima in the past and the present. In order to examine the attitudes of medical students toward Oriental medicine before and after lecture course, self-administered questionnaires were given the medical students of The University of Tokushima School of Medicine. A hundred percent of the students were interested in Oriental medicine ; 100% thought that Oriental medicine was worth learning ; 60% wanted to introduce Oriental medicine into their clinical practice in the future. These results suggest that it is necessary to properly learn Oriental medicine from the basics during medical school. More research on Oriental medicine in terms of clinical and basic science is necessary, and the opportunity to exchange information about Oriental medical treatment should be included in post-graduate curriculum.
