Who are we
Chinese Medicine Culture Centre

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a treasure of ancient Chinese science and a key to Chinese civilization. It's a systematic philosophy explored and formed by the Chinese people in their practice that elaborates disease prevention, cures, health cultivation, fitness and harmony between people and nature. With a history of 5000 years, TCM contributes not only to the prosperity of the Chinese nation, but the health of people all over the world.


Beijing University of Chinese Medicine (BUCM) is the earliest higher education institute of TCM approved by the State Council, and a key university featuring TCM studies directly under the administration of the Education Ministry of the People's Republic of China. In order to make TCM culture accessible to more people, the Chinese Language International Promotion and Chinese Medicine Culture Centre (Beijing) was established in 2016 at BUCM under the support of the Confucius Institute Headquarters (Hanban).


To introduce the ancient yet evolving TCM to the world, CMCC was established as a window into the science, which marks a new era of Chinese Medicine culture communication.
