Another new institution of Tibetan medicine was the medical faculty at the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies (CIHTS) in Sarnath, just outside of Varanasi.
The CIBS was already founded in 1959 to fulfill the same purpose like the CIHTS, and established a medical section later, in 1989, with Pasang Yonten Arya--who had been the principal at the Men-Tsee-Khang college before his resignation there--as its first teacher.
Leaving aside a few private Tibetan doctors (until 1990, they numbered less than a handful), Trogawa Rinpoche and the largely ignored CIHTS medical faculty, the Men-Tsee-Khang remained the sole representative and overwhelming power in the field of Tibetan medicine in exile.
