School of Traditional Medicine

Introduction

The School started its operation as a department of the “Monos” Institute, with 3 teachers, on 1 September 2014. It was reformed as a school when the “Monos” Institute expanded as a Pharmaceutical University. The school recruited its teaching staff with new teachers in 2016-2017 academic years. Now it has 6 teachers including its head. The director of the school is Professor Mr. Bold Sharav.

The objective of the school is to upgrade teachers’ academic degree and increase teachers’ number as well as expand its department into 2 more departments (1. The department of illness study 2.The department of clinic methods and principles).

Our school is going to qualify physicians or doctors of traditional medicine (Mongolian or oriental). We are combining both oriental and western medicines in our instruction, based on oriental medical knowledge. For instance, the core instructional textbook is ཨ་མྲྀ་ཏ་ཧྲྀ་ད་ཡ་ཨངྒ་ཨཥྚ་གུ་ཧྱ་ཨུ་པ་དེ་ཤ་ཏནྟྲ་ནཱ་མ། (in Sanskrit language) and བདུད་རྩི་སྙིང་པོ་ཡན་ལག་ བརྒྱད་པ་གསང་བ་མན་ངག་གི་རྒྱུད་ཅེས་བྱ་བ། (in Tibetan) and other additional old traditional medical textbooks or sutras are used as the explanations, practices and instructional materials in combination of modern medical practices. Example of the textbook or sutras are “The Blue Sapphire” and “The Essential Teachings of The Highnesses” etc.
