To Attend by Online On-Demand Webcast:
Through an exciting new initiative, we would like to offer the opportunity for students to attend the first semester of our 4-year School of Tibetan Medicine by on-demand webcast from their home locations. Dr. Phuntsog Wangmo has assured us that the first semester of our curriculum can be well understood through distance-learning, and we are excited about the possibilities for the dissemination of Tibetan Medicine that this new collaboration could bring.
There will be approximately 20 hours of class time a week, which you can watch at your convenience, whenever is best for you (a total of approximately 300 hours of class time).
Although this webcasted first semester can stand on its own as a general introduction into Tibetan medicine and Tibetan language, a very dedicated student could actually choose to continue the four-year program, as offered in the United States. If you are interested, please let us know and we can give you more information on this possibility and what you would need to do to qualify. We also may offer the continuation of the 4-year course on demand in the coming semesters, if there is sufficient interest.
We currently plan to hold this course in the English Language with optional Russian translation, but if there are enough interested participants in another language group, we may be able to provide translation into other languages as well. Please contact us if you are interested in this possibility.
As of October 31st applications for the Fall 2010 Semester are no longer being accepted.
In the end of January of 2011 we will post more information about the upcoming school year.
