About tzu-chi In 1966, Dharma Master Cheng Yen founded   Tzu   Chi.   During   that   Ame,   the   east   coast   of   Taiwan,   where   Dharma   Master   Cheng   Yen   first   se[led,   was   undeveloped   and   impoverished.       Therefore,   she   has   set   structured   missions   (charitable   services,   medical   care,   moral   development   and   humanity   acAviAes)   to   improve   the   condiAon.     In   order   to   improve  medical  care  and  train  our  own  doctors  to  support  the Hospital of Tzu Chi,   Tzu Chi University was   established   iniAally   as   Tzu   Chi   College   of   Medicine   in   1994   in   the   Eastern   region   of   Taiwan.   Its   existence   also   raises   the   level   of   local   health  awareness  and  educaAon.  By  now,  University  of  Tzu  Chi   is  transforming  into  a  full  fledge  University  with  4  faculAes.  With   the  mo[o  of  "Kindness, compassion, joy, and unselfish giving",   Tzu   Chi   University   strives   to   follow   those   codes   of   conduct   and   integrates   them   into   the   students'   university   curriculum  and  teaching.

Highlights •  (1)Academic  

             A.  Chinese  Medicine  

Chinese medicine  is  comprised  of  herbal  medicine,   acupuncture,   naprapathy,   and   some   natural   ointments.   It’s   been  more  and  more  important  these  years  due  to  the  side   effects   of   Western   medicine.   Nowadays,   people   start   to   combine   both   of   their   advantages.   At   the   lecture,   you   will   learn  acupuncture  and  make  your  own  special  ointment.  

             B.  Lecture  1:                 As   modern   technology   develops,   easier   access   to   medical   knowledge  

has brought  law  problems  to  the  doctors  of  today.  For  fear  of  irraAonal   accusaAons,   departments   that   stand   the   slightest   chance   of   medical   disputes   are   becoming   medical   student’s   favorite.   Unequal   distribuAon   of  medical  resources  is  another  problem  we  cannot  neglect.  To  bring  us   back  on  the  right  track,  construcAve  soluAons  are  to  be  found.
