Guided by the principles of mutual exchange, the university has been actively involved in international academic exchanges and other cooperative efforts. The college is dedicated to the Sino-foreign Cooperation in Running School by establishing cooperative relations with the following universities and colleges: Hungkuang University, TAFENSW-Western Sydney Institute, Sydney University, Thomas University, USA and Far Eastern University, Philippine. With the joint efforts of our University and Hongkong TCM Science and Technology Institute, we successfully obtained the accreditation from the State Education Ministry for Bachelor Programs in TCM and Chinese Materia Medica in Hongkong and set up a Teaching Center in July, 2003, the first of its kind for all the TCM Universities and Colleges in Mainland China. The first batch of students have already begun their studies in this center. Accordingly, we are also initiating a series of training programs for those having desires to further their studies abroad, e.g. IELTS training and English Trainning for nurses planning to study and work abroad. Since 1994 our university has begun to undertake the entire teaching and medical training assignment in Tunisia International Acupuncture Training Center. Teachers and doctors sent to work there are highly spoken of by large number of local patients, especially by the President of Tunisia and his wife as well for their superb medical skills.
