Traditional Chinese Medicine
Department of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)
Department of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) of Peking University People's Hospital was established in 1956. With the guidance of the two national famous old doctors of TCM, Xu Hengzhi and Zhang Jianfu, we subsequently set up the innovative therapy for leukemia by TCM treatment and have been accumulating a wealth of experience in TCM therapy on difficult diseases of Internal Medicine ever since.
TCM department integrates clinical practices, research and education together. To satisfy our first priority, the well-being of our patients—near and far, we provide health care through joint efforts of our TCM ward, TCM clinic, acupuncture clinic, rehabilitation clinic, TCM laboratory, electrophysiology examination room and the teaching and research section of TCM.
