學校歷史

加州五系中醫藥大學成立於1984年2月4日鼠年春節,適逢六十干支紀年循環初始之甲子年,象徵著:一元復始,萬象更新。當時本校僅有一間教室、三間診療室、五位教師、十八名 學生、一位打字員,每日僅一個病人。現在我們擁有兩個校區,10種課程,14個教室,38個治療室,200名教師,450名全職學生,1500個校友,每天接待160位病人。。然而,我們並不以此為滿,仍將持續發展壯大。

在創校初期,我們特意邀集各界中醫專家前來美國教學,傳授其多年積累的中醫知識,並分享其實效的治療方案,就在這幾位接受我們邀請的中醫專家點頭同意之際,加州五系中醫藥大學的歷史正式揭幕了。

加州五系中醫藥大學的能有今日成就,主要歸功于本校教授及醫師群多年來的努力奉獻。彭振能教授、趙振平教授、馮前教授及胡露茜教授於本校任教已超過29年。時至今日,本校擁有的優秀師資規模已達二百餘人。

回顧校史上最令人深感難忘的時刻總是:每當病人恢復健康後,在路上巧遇時以溫情擁抱與笑顏回報本校教員醫師以示感激之情、或在親友面前開心地分享中醫是如何適時挽救了自己的性命;以及每當畢業生心懷感激,在畢業時離情依依地致贈禮物給老師,以表達感恩提攜之意。扶病、育才對本校而言,是最具意義的事。

無論是本校廣泛全面的學術課程設計、高質量的課堂及臨床教學、熱誠真摯於教學的師資、勤勉的教務行政人員及學生,這些努力貢獻正是促使我們能在西方社會中,能持續發揚傳承中醫文化的堅實推動能量。
