The Hitchhikers Guide to Medical History
With Ted Katpchuk
From Shamans, to Chinese Physicians to Medical Doctors 
A Personal Journey
This evening talk will describe Harvard professor Ted Kaptchuk's experience in Chinese medical school
and his later encounter with India's Ayurveda and the intellectual and emotional turmoil this created. 
His subsequent study of the Hippocratic Corpus failed to resolve the conflict for him.


 Ted will then explore the origin of Chinese, Ayurveda and Hippocratic Medicine in relationship to shamanic healing.
  He will elucidate the origins of modern medicine biomedicine, with an effort to describe “What is healing?”  
  Ted mixes personal stories, historical scholarship and
his extensive experience as a healer and scientist.    
This talk will be informative, entertaining and addressed to non-specialists
 and amazingly will be done in less than an hour with plenty of time for questions and discussion.   

 Ted Kaptchuk currently is an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School where he investigates the placebo effects and the patient-practitioner relationship. He has published over 175 scientific and scholarly articles that have appeared in such journals as New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, Lancet and BMJ. He was one of the first Westerners to study Chinese medicine in China in the 1970s.  His The Web That Has No Weaver: Understanding Chinese Medicine is considered a classic text. 
 Professor Kaptchuk entered the field of placebo research after pioneering the study of East Asian medicine in the United States and Europe and establishing himself as a scholar of multiple healing traditions. He is the author of The Web That Has No Weaver: Understanding Chinese Medicine, a classic textbook, and was senior writer and researcher for the 9-hour BBC-TV series The Healing Arts, which documented healing practices around the world.
Professor Kaptchuk received a B.A. in East Asian Studies from Columbia University in 1968 and graduated with a degree in Chinese medicine from the Macao Institute of Chinese Medicine (Macao, China) in 1975. He was appointed Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School in 1998 and Associate Professor in 2007.  From 1998 to 2011, Professor Kaptchuk was Associate Director of the Osher Research Center at Harvard Medical School.
He was a member of NCCAM’s National Advisory Council from 1999 to 2010 and an expert panelist for the FDA from 2001 to 2005.
