The culture of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the treasures of traditional Chinese culture, and its philosophy of life is still of great significance in the modern era. In recent years, there has been increasing social concern about health education for college students. At present, only sporadic studies have begun to pay attention to the enlightening role of TCM ideology on the health of college students, but there is still a need for further exploration on the specialized research regarding the TCM philosophical thoughts and the health of college students. This paper surveys students of 31 colleges in Zhejiang Province. Focusing on four dimensions: TCM method understanding, TCM thought cognition, TCM practice and future development of TCM Taking these four dimensions as the entry points, investigation and analysis are conducted to explore the characteristics of contemporary college students' cognition of TCM, identify existing issues, and discuss the enlightening role of TCM's philosophy of life on the health of college students.
