My interest in herbalism and alternate medicine brought me to this course. It was very informative indeed and I made notes often. The tests are also to the point. Thank you, professors and Coursera!
A very nice program for understanding the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Quite analogous to the Ayurvedic Medicine that deals with imbalance of vata (air), pittha (fire) and kapha (cold).

El curso me ha parecido interesante como introducción a la Medicina China, pero no aprendes nada en el sentido más terapéutico. Se aprende en que se basa, los síntomas de las enfermedades y pinceladas de cómo diagnosticar una dolencia.
The course offers a good beginning to understanding the topic.
A few additions I am hoping for, or an additional course - would be
1- foods that can alter yin/yang
2- herbs that can alter yin/yang
3- common treatments for common ailments

Taking acupunkture courses this course helped me getting a basic idea of TCM concepts. A little more depth about the underlying mechanisms would be great especially Week 4 and 5. But after all a great course. Recommend!

Good introduction to a more complete course. It would be useful to have always the correct answer when an incorrect one has been provided, otherwise how do we learn?

Overall a really informative course, but the reading materials could have been provided since it's really hard to get them online.

Great intro course and can be more consistent in presentation with Chinese keywords and Chinese subtitles in all sessions.

muy buen curso. sería ideal que el examen fuera en el idioma en que se toma, ya que se pierden puntos en la traducción

A good introduction to CM, although could have went a little more in-depth and provide some real-life scenarios.

Good information. Quizzes need some attention as choices at times are not easily seen and are too far apart!
