Medical Students

The Bon Bum Zhi Medical Institute at Menri provides a 7 year training based on the main Tibetan Bon Medicinal scripture of Tonpa Shenrab, the four volume Bum Zhi.

All students must have completed their high school education before joining the Medical Institute training.  Students both live and study at the Institute, and after 7 years are certified as a Tibetan Amchi, doctor of Tibetan medicine.  Currently about 20 students are enrolled, with the Institute providing meals and secure housing facilities for both male and female students.

Your sponsorship donation improves the ability of each student to fully focus on their studies since they know their food and housing needs are met.

Know that your donation helps improve the life and education of each medical student.  Thank you.
