Female experts on Tibetan medicine well up

Female experts of Tibetan medicine in present Tibet have abandoned the historical taboo for women pursuing medicine and played more and more important role in the field.

70-year-old Dekyi Drolkar is one out of the first batch of female doctors on Tibetan medicine.

Born as a serf in old Tibet, Dekyi Drolkar said the fate of female Tibetan doctors has been changed in present Tibet. "It's a historic progress that women are permitted to learn Tibetan medicine," She added.

Dekyi Drolkar started studying Tibetan medicine in Lhasa Tibetan Medicine Institute in 1959 and has devoted herself to Tibetan medicine after graduated in 1966.

Even by now, she is still engaged in her profession in TAR Tibetan Medicine Hospital and has worked out effective prescriptions for hemiplegia and cerebral hemorrhage combining approaches of western and Tibetan medicine.

In recent years, increasing numbers of female doctors on Tibetan medicine well up in Tibet. Plenty of female masters on Tibetan medicine have graduated from TAR Tibetan Medicine Institute.

"I plan to open a Tibetan medicine clinic in my hometown and serve my village fellows," said Yin Mucao, 44, one of the first group of female masters from TAR Tibetan Medicine Institute.

Mingjue Tsomo, another master on Tibetan medicine, has compiled "Obstetrics & Gynecology of Tibetan Medicine" with 20,000 words.

"Female doctors on Tibetan medicine have changed the history that females can not access to Tibetan medicine study," said Nyima Tsering teaching in TAR Tibetan Medicine Institute.
