    An eight week period of study was undertaken at Shanghai Medical University as a student elective from Manchester University Medical School. During this time the student was taught elements of the traditional theory of acupuncture and was given clinical training in acupuncture, electroacupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and herbal injection. A good variety of medical problems were seen being treated. The process of selecting a suitable venue for a student elective in China is discussed, as is the teaching routine in an acupuncture clinic.
