Introduction

Ayurveda being a very ancient system has its origin around 600 BC in India. It is a medical system which understands the diseases as the imbalance of the body’s three humors such as the Vata or the nerve energy, the Pitta or the catabolic fire energy and the Kalpha or the anabolic nutritive energy. The Ayurvedic treatments are person specific rather than disorder specific using mixes of natural herbs as medicine. Ayurveda believes in the concept that prevention is better than cure. In Ayurveda, purification and detoxification, dietary changes, body massages and meditation are used to promote health and prevent and treat illness. The medicines of Ayurveda are rapidly gaining acceptance all over the world as they have no side effects.

Eligibility

The selection of BAMS is through the same All India Entrance Examination as for MBBS. The qualification required for entrance is 10+2 or equivalent with Science subjects. The five and half year under-graduate programs in Ayurveda lead to a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery (B.A.M.S.).  The Post-graduate programs are structured into16 branches leading to a Doctorate in Ayurveda.  The 16 branches are the Ayurvedic Sidhanta or the Fundamental Principals of Ayurveda, the Ayurved Samhita or the Treatise of Ayurveda, the Rachna Sharira or the Anatomy, the Kriya Sharira or the Physiology, the Dravya Guna Vigyan or the Materia Medica & Pharmacology, the Ras- ShastraBhaishajya Kalpana or the Pharmaceuticals, the Kumar Bharitya or the Paediatrics, the Prasuti Tantra or the Obstetrics & Gynaecology, the Swasth Vrita or the Social of Preventive Medicine, the Kayachikitsa or the Internal Medicine, the Rog Nidan or the Pathology, the Shalya Tantra or the Surgery, the Shalkya Tantra or the Eye & ENT, the Mano Roga or the Psychiatry, and the Panchkarma or the Detoxification of body.

Job Scope and Career Options

The Ayurvedic practitioners can get employments as medical officers/doctors at government and private Ayurvedic hospitals. Some also start their own practice or open own retail shops of Ayurveda medicines. Many find employment as supervisors in 'Panch Karma' or Ayurvedic massage or health centres, as tutors in Ayurvedic colleges or do research, conduct workshops, seminars and retreats.
