My name is Christopher Zaslawski and I’m an associate professor in the Faculty of Science, teaching in the area of Chinese Medicine.
I’m privileged to be teaching and researching here at UTS for over 20 years. We have over 200 students studying in the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Chinese Medicine), and the course is accredited by the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia and the major professional associations.
The clinic has 16 beds which is used for the acupuncture and the Chinese massage, in addition we’ve got a very well-stocked herbal dispensary which houses over 300 commonly used herbal medicines, plus two private consultation rooms.
The clinic is staffed by experienced and registered Chinese Medicine academics, and final year students.
Here at UTS we also undertake teaching and research, so currently we’re looking at Chinese herbal medicine and diabetes, Chinese medicine informatics and also looking at the effects of laser on osteo-arthritic knee pain. We’re also undertaking clinical trials using acupuncture for post-traumatic stress, depression, and musculoskeletal pain.
We have a strong international focus, the final year students have the option of studying in China at the Chinese-Japanese friendship hospital in Beijing, or in Busan, South Korea, at the Dong-eui University.
Our academic staff also have international research collaboration with hospitals, institutes and universities in China and South Korea.
UTS is at the forefront of Chinese Medicine education, and we hope to keep growing our international relationships while serving our local community.
UTS provides four outpatient clinics where members of the public can receive Chinese medicine treatment from qualified staff practitioners or student interns at a substantially reduced cost, as part of its degree program.
