CM 572 - Chinese Diagnostic Techniques II


Credit(s): 1.50

This lecture and lab series is designed to teach, demonstrate and practice the basic diagnostic procedures of Chinese medicine, including visual observation (wang), olfactory perception (wen), questioning (wen) and palpation (qie), including Chinese medicine physical diagnosis and pulse diagnosis. The series introduces the theoretical precepts of classical diagnosis as recorded in the medical classics Huangdi Neijing and Nanjing. The instruction of the pulses is rooted in key passages from the Pulse Classic (Maijing) and Li Shizhen’s Pulse Studies (Binhu maixue). The basic pulse diagnosis practiced in this class prepares students for the Acu-Moxa Techniques lab series. Visual and olfactory perception, along with the traditional Ten Questions (shiwen), are also practiced in class.
