Virtual simulation technology plays an important role in educational engineering. The limitation of enough Chinese herbal medicines and instrument obscured the better understanding of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In this paper, the concept of virtual simulation technology and its application was outlined in the teaching of TCM theory and experiments. The superiority and insufficiency of this technology was also approached. The basic idea on building a virtual teaching and simulation platform for TCM was discussed, which may provide referred methods in the innovation of Chinese medicine teaching.
