The Status Quo of Chinese Medicine Education in Higher Vocational Colleges and Practice and Application of the Training Model of "Teacher Leading Apprentice" Tutorial System

“Teacher succession” has always been a traditional way of inheritance of Chinese medicine. Through the succession of teachers, the valuable experience accumulated by previous generations of doctors in long-term clinical practice can be passed on from generation to generation. The advantage of this inheritance model is that it can carry out practice to the greatest extent, learn theory in practice, and better combine theory with practice, which is more in line with the characteristics of Chinese medicine education.
