TGM Medical Missionary Training Center
TGM is an acronym meaning in German language “Trainingszentrum für Gesundheitsmission“, literally translated “Training Center for Medical Missionary Work“.
Located in the wonderful Southern part of Austria called Carinthia (Kärnten), TGM is accommodated in a hotel in the midst of peaceful nature. In the same building you may find not only the mission school, but also the Country Life Austria lifestyle center.

The emphasize of TGM is medical missionary work and the work in a health center. Our students learn anatomy, physiology, vegan cooking, giving full body massage and also water treatments. During the school year our students work also in the garden and in all parts of a Newstart health center, including the kitchen, the laundry, the hotel guest rooms, the tea bar and giving treatments.
