Abstract Aims: To evaluate the course of Chinese Medicine Basic Theory (CMBT) delivered to medical doctors for course improvement using an established Nominal Group Technique (NGT). Methods: 14 Iranian students with medical backgrounds at Beijing University of Chinese Medicine completed the two NGT sessions. Results: 20 prioritised items were produced. Of these, clinical relevance, quality of teaching and learning activities and English language proficiency were considered the most important areas. Conclusion: The quality of the CMBT course might be improved when it is implemented with clinically relevant content knowledge, constructively aligned teaching and learning activities with quality delivery in the classroom.
