Visiting Professor Gary Kreps visited the Singapore College of Traditional Chinese Medicine on 28 January. Professor Kreps shared his views on traditional Chinese medicine with Professor Xiang Ping, the Principal of the College. The meeting included a visit to the college’s herbal drug dispensary and library.
Founded in 1953, the SCTCM is the biggest TCM institute in Southeast Asia with a current enrolment of 900 students taking on accredited TCM programmes at bachelor, masters and doctoral levels.
CNM faculty Assistant Profs Iccha Basnyat and Leanne Chang had accompanied Prof Kreps with a view to exploring possible collaborations with the college in the future.
This was CNM’s second visit. CNM was at the college with its visiting professors, Barbara Sharf and Jeffery Peterson last October.
