NITM prepares to shift to the new academic block

The construction of National Institute of Traditional Medicine’s (NITM) new buildings is now complete and the institute is preparing to move into the new block.

The new academic block will house the institute’s library, museum, staff room, Menlha lhakhang (altar room), meeting hall, computer lab, and other offices. The lock will also house several classrooms.

The new academic session in the new block will begin with a consecration ceremony, empowerment and oral transmission of Sangay Menlha (medicine Buddha).

Shifting of classrooms to the new block will take place on an auspicious day in August.

“I am very eager to step into the new building where there are spacious rooms for learning,” said Thukten Wangdi, a final year student. Tashi Dorji, another student, said “We are happy to get an opportunity to study in the new block for the final one year.”

Students will, however, have to wait for the completion of the new hostels. As yet, some students have had to arrange their accommodation outside the campus due to inadequate hostel facility.
