Dr. Pema Dorjee
Pema Dorjee was born in 1950 in Tibet. When he was nine years old, his parents fled to India as the Chinese invaded Tibet. He completed his medical studies in 1974 under the renowned professor Dr. Barshi Phuntsok at the Men-Tsee-Khang, the Tibetan Medical and Astro Institute. A distinguished student, Dr. Dorjee was selected to complete his internship under Dr. Yeshi Dhonden, the personal physician to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.After completing his internship, he directed various branch clinics of the Men-Tsee-Khang in Nepal, New Delhi, Dharamsala, Itanagar, Calcutta and most recently, Salugara, West Bengal. During Dr. Dorjee’s tenure at the Calcutta clinic, the Indian publication Telegraph Magazine did a cover story about his work, calling him a “Miracle Man.”Dr. Dorjee was elected the first chairperson of the Menpa Lhentsog (Tibetan Medical Council) and for three years served as General Secretary of Men- Tsee-Khang; currently he is Technical Advisor to the Research and Development Department.
