DAOM Research: Huang Di Nei Jing (Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic)

Abstract

The Huáng Dì Nèi Jīng has long been regarded as the seminal classic of East Asian medicine, but only 51% of accredited East Asian medicine programs in the United States currently teach the Huáng Dì Nèi Jīng as part of their curriculum. The study sought to clarify this problem through the development of a practical, consensus-based curriculum for the Huáng Dì Nèi Jīng. To create this curriculum, a modified Delphi method was utilized to survey current classroom teachers in the United States that teach the text: each was asked to identify what they believed to be the 10 most important chapters for master’s level students. Twenty-five potential schools were identified and contacted, and 19 provided contact information for the appropriate teacher. Of the 19 teachers surveyed, 8 provided a full response, 3 abstained because they objected to the wording of the question, and 1 abstained because they were a new teacher and felt unqualified to answer: yielding a total response rate of 64%.  More than 80% of the chapters picked were from the Su Wen portion of the text, and 10 of these chapters generated 3 or more responses.  The present curriculum examines these 10 chapters–in addition to supplementary information from classical and modern sources–to provide teachers with a practical way of approaching the Huáng Dì Nèi Jīng within one semester’s time.
