The India: Traditional Medicine and Healthcare Practices program aims to acquaint students with socioeconomic, cultural, spiritual, and institutional dimensions and paradigms of healthcare in India. By observing and learning about the institutions, methodologies, and practitioners of traditional medicine, students compare and contrast India’s traditional and modern healthcare systems. The structure of the program enhances students’ capacity to critically engage multidimensional perspectives on healthcare and health delivery systems.
Students on this program enroll in two separate seminar courses: Traditional Indian Medicine: Theory and Context and Field Study of Traditional Indian Healthcare Practices.
Lecturers are drawn from institutions such as Ministry of AYUSH, Morarji Desai National Institute of Yoga, and the Himalayan Research Institute of Yoga and Naturopathy in Kayakalp; Delhi University; and Men-Tsee-Khang Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute, Dharamsala.
