Distance learning
From your home, you can study the theory of Tibetan Medicine on the basis of eleven textbooks (downloadable documents) from the treatise "The Essentials of Gyud-shi", written by Prof. Pasang Yonten Arya, that not only expounds, explains and comments on the traditional Gyud-shi, the "Four medical Tantras", but also its contemporary practice and interpretation.

You will also receive commentaries and explanations on these texts, in audio recordings (about 250 hours) and video teachings by Dr Pasang Arya.
You will be able to study this material at your own pace and convenience.


 
Question & Answer online sessions
Nine times a year, you along with your classmates will be able to participate in "live" two-hour interactive online Question and answer sessions. During these sessions, Dr Pasang Arya will directly answer your questions and, depending on the needs, complement and enlarge upon the teachings.

 
Class environment
You’ll have access to a class environment where you’ll find interactive quizzes to train the understanding, as well as support, and contact with the other students of your class.

 

 

Practical training
During the 2nd and 3rd years, a 6-day practical workshop (5 days of training, 1 day examination) will take place in Europe (generally in Switzerland), where you will go from theory to practice under Dr Pasang Y. Arya’s guidance. These intensive workshops are especially dedicated to practical aspects and training of diagnosis (pulse taking, urine analysis,...), as well as external therapies training (moxibustion, fomentation, cupping, massage, hor-me,...). Early mornings are dedicated to Tibetan Yoga teaching and practice.
Workshops may include sessions with guest experts in specific areas of Tibetan medicine.
Please, be aware that the number of seats for this program is limited.

Certification
At the end of the three-year course, if you have successfully passed all the exams, you will get a certification from TME (TM course A : Theory and practice level ). This certificate attests to the study of Traditional Tibetan Medicine, its contemporary practice and interpretation, over a three-year period.

Since Tibetan Medicine, like many other complementary medicines, is still not officially recognized in many countries, remain aware that even if this certification attests your knowledge on Tibetan Medicine, it is not an authorization to practice per se, as legal recognition and licenses depend on the laws of each country.
Thus, if you are already a medical doctor or already have an official authorization to practice as naturopath practitioner in your country you can receive the TME certificate as an attestation  of your additional knowledge on Tibetan medicine and related techniques.
If you have not yet graduated in any medical complementary discipline, you will also receive the same certificate from TME, but in order to have a legal recognition in your country as a health practitioner, you may have, depending on your country laws, to obtain extra certificates.

 

Auditor status
At the end of the 1st year, Students who wish to continue the course without taking the exam, have the possibility to switch their Student status into an Auditor status.
Auditors can attend the course the same way as students, with the same access to the material and online sessions, but they don’t take exams and cannot obtain certification. Besides, they cannot participate in programs for advanced students.
