Rounds in the Tibetan Medical Teaching Hospital - Xining Tibet

Writing patient files We rotated different departments each week in the inpatient wards of the hospital to begin to see the interface between Tibetan Medicine and Allopatic or as the called it in Tibet “Biomedicine”.

The modern Tibetan Doctor in Tibet must face the influence and dominance of western medicine. Its was good to see both sides of the paradigm. There are helpful contributing factors which strengthen the research into how effective Tibetan Medicine is, as well as the influence modern treatments and diagnostics has on young Tibetan doctors loosing centuries old diagnostic and treatment methods.

Newspapers came and interview us on several occasions. They wanted to know what made western people want to study ancient medicine if we come from a land of modern and updated medical models.

Our answer was because we saw it was a treasure to be preserved, with the ability to help others when modern science had no options left. To promote complementary medicine which could make the quailty of life in a terminal illness improve. The original newspaper article is here Tibetan Medicine meets Modern in Xining, Tibet
