CTA Nurses Training

TRAS supports the training of Tibetan nurses in Dharamsala, northern India. In partnership with the Central Tibetan Administration (the Tibetan government-in-exile), and with the full support of the Dalai Lama, TRAS has improved the lives of many bright young students. 


Each year, TRAS supports up to eight students who are studying for their general nursing (BSc Nursing) degrees. We remain in contact and monitor each of our students’ successes throughout the four-year study program and two-year internship. Training includes curative and preventative treatment, health education and traditional Tibetan medicine. We are proud to report that nearly every student we have supported has graduated, with many returning to their hometowns to work. See their annual reports below.
