AbstractFive focus group discussions were conducted with 28 (fourth-year) medical students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) to explore attitudes to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and its impact on the future of medical training. Most students perceived that TCM was a good alternative for certain health problems but lack of scientific evidence and the absence of regulation were major barriers. Students were concerned about the limitations of TCM, but identified their need to understand TCM to effectively communicate with their patients. Paralleled with the experience in the United Kingdom and other countries, if traditional and conventional doctors are to work effectively side by side, current medical education and health service arrangements need to change. © Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
