The workshop provided a platform for close contact between modern medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, resulting in direct communication between the modern and the traditional and facilitating mutual understanding and integration of the two medical systems. The launch of the joint doctoral programs makes it possible for the US and neighboring countries to cultivate outstanding TCM professionals. A new way for countries with Western medicine as their mainstream medical system to train high-level TCM professionals, the programs mark a great contribution made by TCM to “building a community of common destiny for all mankind”.
