The aim of this study is to understand the current T&CM education in Malaysia. We referred to literatures regarding to traditional medicine education in Malaysia, and collected the information via website or interview with Faculty of T&CM in universities/colleges and Division of T&CM, Ministry of Health, Malaysia. T&CM education in Malaysia has been following China’s TCM systems for 50 years. Currently, Division of T&CM, Ministry of Health; and Ministry of Higher Education; has approved 11 institutions to offer T&CM education. Students may major in Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture or other T&CM subjects. Generally, clinical training programs in China, Taiwan or Australia include substantial proportion of clinical training. We reported the general information of T&CM education in Malaysia. This result would be the first stage information for an establishment of a strategy regarding the enhancement of Malaysia education for T&CM.
