Building upon the Nomenclature Debates 2006. Language is the root of medical practice. The ability to convey medical practices from one culture to another is dependent upon the translational and linguistic assumptions in both the language of origin and the language of arrival. Is standardization necessary? If so, then how does the profession of Oriental medicine concede? This panel provides a forum for the discussion of these vital concerns by recognized experts in the field of Oriental medical education, certification and publication. Morning panelists will each present their position paper, followed by attendee questions and answers.
