In 1992, Victoria University became the first government funded university in the Western world to offer a bachelor’s degree in Chinese Medicine. Our Chinese medicine program is based on strong traditional and contemporary philosophical foundations. It draws upon the Oriental traditions of Daoism and Buddhism as well as such contemporary disciplines as Holism, Systems Theory and Consciousness Studies. Those who choose to study Chinese medicine at Victoria University will study Chinese medicine as a “Chinese art/science” that includes studies in meditation, qi gong and other health enhancing practices, presented from a traditional and holistic perspective.
