Medicine is benevolence, and the ultimate goal of medicine is to pursue human health. Medical higher education should not only be responsible for the teaching of professional knowledge, but also pay more attention to ideological and moral education. Therefore, it is particularly important to practice course ideological and political education. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is the excellent traditional culture of our country. Traditional Chinese medicine courses in Western medical colleges should not only teach the basic knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine, but also carry out course ideological and political education based on Chinese excellent traditional culture. This article summarizes teaching experience to discuss the content and form of course ideological and political education in TCM teaching. Through the combination of professional knowledge, cultural heritage and ideological and political education, it is possible to cultivate all-round medical talents with both political integrity and ability.
