Neijing - The Yellow Emperor's Internal Classic: Su Wen






Skill Level






Phoenix Academy is extremely proud to introduce the level 4 diploma in The Yellow Emperor’s Internal Classic, taught by Dr YouJun Wang and Dr DaPeng Zhang. This flexible course allows students to gain an understanding of fundamental Chinese medicine study, using the teachings of the Internal Classic. This course is the first of its kind to be taught in English and offers acupuncturists and practitioners an opportunity to further their Chinese medicine knowledge.

This is an incredible opportunity to learn the fundamentals of Chinese medicine from one of the most important classics  – The Yellow Emperor’s Classic. Using carefully selected important chapters and paragraphs from the Internal Classic, the course will teach students how to apply the traditional principles to modern-day treatments in the clinic. The diploma will give students an understanding of classic Chinese medicine theories, methods and systems. 

The course will be taught by two dedicated TCM lecturers who have been doing the research work for more than 30 years and accumulated the most valuable experience in the field.

The course will not only overcome any limitations of understanding popular textbooks, but also showcase how to use ancient teachings for the modern interruption. It will bring the understanding of the Internal Classic to 2022 to be used in modern-day treatment in Western clinics.
