The Logo

The colors green, red, yellow, white and black are symbolic of five elements wood, fire, earth, metal and water. The concept of the shield represents disease defense and the dragon is the guardian of both. At the center of shield is a needle surrounded by a double spiral of DNA and the snakes are emblematic of Eastern and Western Medicine merging. On the Upper-left is Ginkgo biloba; ginkgo is a well-known Chinese and Western medicine and CM on upper-right is the abbreviation for Chinese Medicine.

The overall design expresses the concept of modern TCM education. It is not only the heritage of Chinese medicine, but also the integration of Eastern and Western medicine allowing Chinese medicine to evolve and flourish.
