Generally, Tibetan Medical science have been focused on only medical treatment, for example pulse analysis, and urinalysis, and utilizes behavior and dietary modification, medicine of natural materials and physical therapies to treat illness. Besides that, this paper makes points of new view which contributes to modern society. The view is education system of Tibetan doctor which is called "Amuchi" by Tibetan people. Tibetan medical students go to High Mountains and collect herbal plants by themselves. They have a very important mission that is not only observation of herbal plants but also collecting herbal plants which will be make medicine after that. They stay and run about in the high mountains all day. They look around for herbs, and pick, carry, wash, dry, cut, and grind, and make medicine. Finally it is returned to local people. Through this most harsh camping, they learn to become tough doctor. In like manner, modern medical science should have a curriculum of medical herb education in academic training, and should start educating from the starting point.
