The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chinese Medicine Specialty Clinic cum
portal1Clinical Teaching and Research Centre situates at 1/F, Sino Building, Chung Chi College, CUHK. Previously as the School of Chinese Medicine Teaching Clinic, the Clinic is the major practicum site for School of Chinese Medicine. Since its establishment in 2001, the Clinic was led by professors, consultants, lecturers and senior Chinese medicine practitioners on site, providing invaluable practicum opportunities for our students as well as quality Chinese medicine services for the public.

In October 2016, our Clinic underwent a major restructure and refurbishment in response to the increasing demand of Chinese Medicine Service. The new Clinic now has more consultation rooms and extended treatment area for acupuncture and bone-setting service. The dispensary is also expanded with the addition of decoction area. In addition to existing options for Chinese Medicine herbal packs or granules, patients may use the new decoction service of their choice.

Our Clinic has fully utilized computerized management system, ranging from reservation, registration, consultation, tariff, through to medicine pick up to promote a more efficient clinic operation.
