This paper explored the clinical thinking way in treating disease by integration of traditional Chinese and Western medicine (ITCWM). In accordance with the challenge and problems the subject of ITCWM faced, the standard of diagnosis, treatment and evaluation of therapeutic response should be established. The combination of symptoms-differentiation with special prescription/drug for special disease to increase the accuracy of treatment is the developing direction for clinical medicine and ITCWM. Absorption and utilization of modern science and technique is the prerequisite for breaking through in ITCWM theory. The key of combining two different medical theories is to look for link joint.

Key words: integration of traditional Chinese and western medicine, clinical medicine, theoretical study
