NEW YEAR MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT

Dear faculties, staff and students,
The year 2016 is one of the most important dates in the history Bhutan, which marked the 400th anniversary of the arrival of dsc_0149Zhabdrung Rinpoche to Bhutan, the birth anniversary of the Guru Rinpoche and the birth of The Gyalsey. The birth of The Gyalsey on the eve of the Losar is the benediction of yet another era of peace, tranquility and prosperity for Kingdom of Bhutan. Our University celebrated the Royal birth by dedicating the 2nd International Conference on Medical and Health sciences (ICMH) with the theme “celebrating mother and child health” for this joyous historical event.
The elected Deans and Dy Deans of the constituent faculties were appointed with an apt investiture ceremony on 3rd March 2016 by the Honorable Health Minister. The Deans and Dy. Deans, together with their respective faculties and staff worked hard in fulfilling the university objectives and taking university to new heights.
Faculty of Nursing and Public health also launched the four years degree course in Clinical Counseling on 18th July 2016. The University also developed and launched the on-line CME program for malaria, HIV and TB. The first University Advisory Board Meeting was successfully convened on 27th May 2016. I would like to thank the honorable members and the chair of the Advisory Board, Lyonpo Thakur Singh Powdyel for their valuable advises.
Three faculty members from our University, Dr Phurb Dorji (Gold Medal), Mr Karma Tshering (Silver Medal) and Dr Guru Prasad Dhakal (Bronze Medal) was awarded in National Order of Merit, Excellence in Teaching by his His Majesty, the King on the National Day, 17th December 2016. This award from the Throne is a source of motivation to rededicate ourselves in providing quality education and Tsawa Sum. The university remain utmost gratitude to his Majesty.
The Deakin University of Australia has reviewed our GNM Diploma and Bsc Nursing curriculum and I am pleased to inform that our graduates can apply upto16 credits, if they want to pursue further academics in Deakin University. I would like to thank FNPH and Barbara Green, International Coordinator, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Deakin University of Australia for making this successful.
We have an exciting and busy year ahead. The University needs to work hard in ensuring that our plans are well incorporated in the 12th FYP. The draft University strategic documents needs further discourse and seek approval from the Governing Council and initiate implementation. During 2017, FNPH plans to have the first batch of Bsc Nursing (Nested GNM) students enrolled and FoPGM will also have additional MD programs. FoTM plans for initiating the first ever master program in Swowa Rigpa. Both university secretariat building and Postgraduate hostel will be near completion in 2017 providing a better working and hostel facilities. Additional infrastructure development is planned for better student’s services. MECRIT should provide many short term courses and able to generate additional revenue for the university. BHJ in 2017, will be launching the awards for promoting research and publication in Bhutan. Despite the expansion of academic programs, research and infrastructure, we should remain steadfast in improving the quality of services. At the core of all our endeavors should be in providing better patient and health care services to the people of Bhutan through quality training. In 2017, we would also have more collaborations and linkages that would strengthen our international stature.
I would like to thank our Honorable Governing Council Board Members, Honorable Advisory Board Members, our collaborators and well-wishers for your generous support and look forward for continued support in the coming year. I would also take this opportunity to thank all the faculties, staff and students for your continued support and look forward to similar support in the coming year.
I wish everyone a warm Tashi Delek and May the Year 2017 filled with joy and happiness for you and your loved one.

Dr. Kinzang P. Tshering
