University of Johannesburg Inaugurates Centre To Teach Chinese Medicine

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – South Africa’s University of Johannesburg (UJ) on Monday inaugurated the Acupuncture Centre and Museum in collaboration with Fujian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The Acupuncture Centre and Museum was first conceptualised a few years ago, with renovations and design commencing in 2019.

The UJ Dean of Faculty of Health Science, Sehaam Khan, welcomed the opening of the centre, saying the centre would provide access to the Chinese traditional medicine, serve as a resource to students and the general public.

“Last year we began offering the Bachelor of Complementary Medicine, which is a four-year qualification.

“As part of this revised curriculum, acupuncture and phytotherapy is included to introduce our students to a broader range of holistic and traditional medicines.

“This year, we also start offering a Postgraduate Diploma in Acupuncture and one in Phytotherapy,” she said.

Speaking during the inauguration, the UJ Head of the Division for Internationalisation Ylva Rodny-Gumede said the Acupuncture Centre and Museum would improve the wellbeing of South Africans.

“This will provide the best treatment for the community we serve. It will improve the mental well-being of the people,” Khan said.

The World Health Organisation said Acupuncture was important for complementary treatment of various diseases.

Gumede said the memorandum of understanding between UJ and Fujian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine was being prepared and would be signed soon to strengthen the collaboration. (NAN)
