Preliminarily selected clinical acupuncture and moxibustion study literatures of 1 637 papers, and comprehensive synthesizing the message from the official internet station of The Ministry of Health and The State Administration of Chinese Medicine and Pharmacy etc., indicates that although acupuncture and moxibustion have been widely applied in clinical treatment of 327 diseases, at present there is no systematic training system for resident physicians and special physicians of acupuncture and moxibustion, which is unfavourable for development of sciences and internationalization. On the basis of comprehensively considering the tendency of medical development at home and abroad and characteristics of training of talented persons and subject development of acupuncture and moxibustion, the training system of resident physicians and special physicians of acupuncture and moxibustion should be founded as soon as possible.
