Course Name:  Ethics and Jurisprudence
Term: Fall 2017
Course Credits: 1 credit


In this course, we will explore the larger scope of ethical and legal issues pertinent to those with a Chinese Medicine practice in the United States. We will consider ancient Chinese medical ethics, as related to the Huangdi Neijing, Confucianist and Daoist ideologies and how these might correlate to the more modern, four principles of biomedical ethics. Using online videos and forum, weekly journaling, in-class discussion and the creation of an individualized, practitioner ethics booklet, our goal will be to create a framework for practitioners to take into their new careers to guide them in the practice of medicine that honors both the patients they are treating and their individual style as Chinese medicine providers.

Eligible applicants for this position must have graduated with at least a master’s degree from an accredited Acupuncture and Oriental medicine institution in China or North America, and be a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the state of Oregon. They must hold expertise in the content area of the course, and have a minimum of five (5) years of clinical experience.
