  1. Efforts must be ma to incorporate well established useful practices from Ayurveda in to modern (allopathic) medicine. These practices need to be studied and tested properly before incorporation . Thus we may be able to compile INDIAN medical practice. We all may benefit from the wisdom of Sages Sushruta and Charaka.

    Good decision by the govt.
    On many occasions patients using both type of medications simultaneously without any untoward incidents rather improving the patient condition.
    This gives more scope to do research in an integrated pattern .

    hasty amalgamation of AYUSH will only make inferior health services. Amalgamation is possible only if some years common medical training is ensued(eg, LMP) after which one can opt for MBBS/BAMS/DHMS etc.10+2 School examination
    First competitive examination
    STAGE – I
    LMP in Medical Schools
    (Three years+ six months of rural posting)
    Second competitive examination
    STAGE – II
    MBBS, BAMS, BHMS, etc.
    (Two years+ one year of Internship)
    Specialist Certificate Residency º
    P.G. Diploma of present day
    (Two years at Medical Schools / Colleges + one year of District Hospital posting)
    Third competitive examination
    STAGE – IV
    P.G. (MD/MS in all ‘pathy’) courses (two years)
    Fourth competitive examination
    STAGE – V
    Post- P.G. (DM/MCh/PhD) courses (Three years).
    N.B.: No two courses should be taught in one institution (i.e. LMP / MBBS / P.G. / Post-P.G. should have separate institutions) to avoid bias in selecting students and to give emphasis on their part of medical education.
