Chinese medicine analysis experimental science is a comprehensive experimental course that can cultivate the preliminary clinical hands-on ability of medical students. Because of its high requirements on students' basic knowledge and comprehensive ability to apply knowledge, teaching is difficult and the teaching effect is general. The purpose of this paper is to apply the two advanced teaching methods such as MOOC and virtual simulation experiment technology that are emerging today to the analytical teaching of animal drugs, to understand the application status of analysis and virtual simulation experiment teaching of animal drugs in medical Functional Experiment Course and analyze its advantages and disadvantages, which can provide reference for further development of functional virtual simulation experiment teaching. This paper uses the MOOC teaching method, a new network-based teaching model, to study the experimental teaching of animal Chinese medicine analysis and the construction of virtual simulation experiment teaching system under the new situation. Firstly, analyzed the advantages in experimental teaching of animal Chinese medicine analysis under virtual simulation experiment. Secondly, it puts forward suggestions for constructing the virtual simulation experiment teaching system of Chinese medicine. At the same time, it discusses the advantages of the combination of MOOC and virtual simulation experiment technology, as well as the status quo of drug analysis teaching, opportunities and reforms under the new situation. Therefore, it can be concluded that by using MOOC and virtual simulation experiments can break through the limitations of traditional teaching and improve teaching. This paper apply the MOOC and virtual simulation experiment to the experimental teaching of animal Chinese medicine analysis, can not only improve the teaching of teachers, but also cultivate the practical ability and thinking innovation ability of medical students in clinical practice. With the advantages of MOOC and virtual simulation experiments, it provides better opportunities and challenges for the analysis teaching of animal drug.
