Third Medical Training Course in Yushu

The third Medical Training course in Yushu for 45 doctors and health workers has started on 22nd September 2013. This is a three-month course. Course attendants are 45 doctors and health workers, all from Yushu Prefecture working in departments of different health care professions within the Prefecture.

Some of unique traditional Tibetan methods of treating physical and mental illness are slowly disappearing. Dr Tragyal, a senior Tibetan doctor from Drayab in Chamdo, who is a well known expert in tradition medical treatment, has been invited especially to give training on theory and practice of special traditional Tibetan medical practices such as ‘moxibustion’ and ‘Tarkyad’ and lead the course with 6 other doctors from Yushu Tibetan Hospital. At the end of three-month course, after the attendants have given an examination, they are all given certificates as well as medical kits.

The estimated cost for this three-month course is around (Chinese Yuan) RMB 350,000 (equal to approximately £35,000). The Yushu Tibetan Hospital is contributing the cost for accommodation, kitchen, study rooms and administration cost. The Foundation has been requested to fund the rest of the expenses.
