    Yoo Jun Sang | 2019, 31(4) | pp.1~8 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    An outcome-based curriculum or competency-based curriculum is regarded to be one of the mainstream curricula to make students centered. It is believed to be able to support a flexible, time-independent curriculum. However, it is not easy for the curriculum developers to convert from the traditional curriculum to an competency-based curriculum. Traditional medicines including Sasang constitutional medicine(SCM) have been on the verge of transforming their curricula. Considering the contents of the clinical skills in terms of an outcome-based curriculum in SCM, at least five categories needs to be covered. First, curriculum developers need to consider the understanding of relevant diseases concerning SCM although SCM could be used as the method to treat all kinds of diseases. Second, curriculum developers facilitate the students to diagnose patients’ SCM types. Third, curriculum developers conduct the establishment of competencies to understand the patterns of SCM symptomology. Fourth, curriculum developers develop the diverse treatment methods and procedures to make students participate. Fifth, curriculum developers make students teach and consult their patients in terms of SCM regimen. Development of the clinical skill contents in detail depends on the situation of each colleges. Competency-based medical curriculum in SCM could influence on the management of the curriculum quality.

    Tae-Yeong Kim , Park Seong-sik | 2019, 31(4) | pp.9~17 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Objectives The purpose of this study is to understand the intention expressed as Jeubjeubhanchul(濈濈汗出) unlike the aspect of perspiration in 『Sanghanlun(傷寒論)』 and 『Donguibogam(東醫寶鑑)』. Methods We examined Sibjo-tang(十棗湯) and the aspect of perspiration focusing on the Chip(漐) and Jeub(濈) in 『Sanghanlun(傷 寒論)』, 『Donguibogam(東醫寶鑑)』, and 『Donguisusebowon(東醫壽世保元)』. Moreover, we examined the connection between the quoted purpose of Sibjo-tang and the aspect of perspiration. Results and Conclusion 1. When Leejema quoted Sibjo-tang to explain the Chestbind disease(結胸) of the Soyang pattern, he used Jeubjeubhanchul (濈濈汗出) instead of Chipchiphanchul(漐漐汗出). 2. About the aspect of perspiration in 『Sanghanlun』 and 『Donguibogam』, the Chip(漐) is used in a situation when the disease progressed from Pyo(表) to Li(裏) and Taeyang-byeong(太陽病) to Yangmyung-byeong(陽明病), and it is expression of physiological perspiration. The Jeub(濈) is used in a situation related to interior(內), Li(裏), and Yangmyung-byeong. 3. Leejema understood Sibjo-tang in relation to the Chestbind disease of the Soyang pattern caused by aggravation of Liyeol (裏熱). Therefore, Leejema used the Jeub(濈) related to interior, Li and Yangmyung-byeong, and it is expression of perspiration caused by aggravation of Liyeol in the Soyang pattern. 4. At first time, Leejema mentioned perspiration and short of breath(短氣) in the symptoms of Sibjo-tang, but he mentioned dry vomiting(乾嘔) and short of breath in 『Sinchukbon(辛丑本)』. Thus, his perspective of perspiration related to Sibjo-tang was appeared in 『Gabobon(甲午本)』, and he paid attention to perspiraion as a major symptom of the Chestbind disease in the early. After clinical experience was built up, It was not that important as the past.

    Se-Won Park , Tae-Yeong Kim , Bea hyo sang and 1 other persons | 2019, 31(4) | pp.18~27 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Objectives The purpose of this study is to estimate the differences in sensory responses(Visual, Auditory, Olfactory and Taste responses) among Sasang Constitution. Methods We recruited 90 healthy subjects who were divided into three groups(30 Soeumin, 30 Soyangin, 30 Taeeumin). First, subjects saw the photo of ‘the dress' and were asked to answer three questions about 'the dress'. And we evaluated auditory function by a Tone Deaf Test(TDT) and Adaptive Pitch Test(APT). Olfactory function was evaluated by using Korean Version of Sniffing' Sticks(KVSS) Test II and Taste function was evaluated by using taste strips. Results and Conclusion 1. Overall, 60% of subjects described 'the dress' as blue/black(B/B); 23.3% as white/gold(W/G); 16.7% as something else, and the difference in the proportion of reporting color of 'the dress' was statistically significant. 2. As the result of analysis of taste strips according to Sasang constitution, there was significant difference that Soyangin scored higher than Soeumin in sweet taste score. 3. As the results of analysis of auditory function test(TDT, APT) and that of olfactory function test(KVSS Test II) according to Sasang constitution, there were no statistically significant differences.
