Ayurveda Professional Education-
Dr. Remya Krishnan MD PhD
The co- pioneer of SBEBA
The prime objectives of the science of Ayurveda is reversal of disease and
emergence of health along with stabilisation of same.
Ayurveda is Science of Life and not merely the Science of Medicine. Hence the
fundamentals of Ayurveda deserves to be mandatory in school curriculum
from primary school level onwards.
Ayurvedic Life science incorporates the fundamental theorems, laws and
principles of Ayurvedic biology which develops a complete understanding of
intricate components of cell and life processes in a human being in place of
interaction with environment
In modern biology , man is not studied in relation to variable environment and
his unique internal circumstances in relation to the same. For this reason , there
are many complex functional aspects of interplay between different cells and
their mechanisms inside the body which is not possible to be studied by
modern tools of research and for this reason,the initiating cause of most of the
diseases is unknown in western medicine text books .
Hence it is important to attain a trained common sense in Ayurvedic biology in
children which enable them to lead a healthy and happy life through out their
Ayurveda professional education
The 5 and a half years course is technically termed as Bachelor of
Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery (BAMS) .
When a student opts for BAMS , he never knows the fundamental
difference in the attitude and approach of Modern Biology and
Ayurvedic Biology of man
At present , there is no specific and specialised training which
enlightens the student of first year to develop common sense in
nature of Ayurvedic biology whichonly enable them to acquire
access into the science of Ayurveda.
Revision of curriculum
Revision is required in three major levels
a. The students of first year must acquire the basic comprehension of Ayurvedic
functional biology and the application of theorems , laws and principles in
b. Their practical records are to be crucially based on these aspects. Clarity in
comprehension of Tridoshas, Sapta dhatus, Malas , Srotas, Agni etc are to be
made mandatory in the year in addition to the principles of modern
Anatomy and physiology
c. There should be sessions where faculties explain why the correlation of
modern terminologies with that of Ayurveda is ineffective and useless.
Deep orientation for faculties
Is required in both Basic and Applied Biology of Ayurveda at an interval of six months
There should be rational standards adopted from “shasthraarthas” to be employed as
tools for comprehension of faculties first which at present is not done .
Now the fundamental structural and functional biology of Ayurveda based on their
beliefs transmitted from self, seniors,faculties or friends by the faculties and there is
no uniform science led rational standards adopted to confirm their accuracy in
meaning and application
For this reason, students at present possess no clarity in comprehension of these
crucial leads of Ayurvedic biology
The Basic science of Ayurvedic diagnostics and clinical pharmacology of Ayurveda
along with Ayurvedic Rasa shasthra and Pharmacotherapeutics are meant as crucial
components of this year.
Ayurveda diagnostics which is a clinical subject must revise the components of
curriculum in the mode of Translational Medicine like Ayurvedic
immunology,Immunidiagnosis , Ayurvedic comprehension of Infective and
Inflammatory diseases, Hypersensitivity metabolic and circulatory diseases, hormonal
dysfunction and modern general and systemic pathology
Ayurvedic Pharmacology is to be entirely a clinica; subject must start with
fundamental principles of Ayurvedic Pharmacodynamics , kinetics and therapeutics .
Medicinal plants are required to be taught regarding their identity and Ayurvedic
applied pharmacology only.
• Critical care Medicine and Pain management strategies of Ayurveda is to be
there in Ayurveda colleges after providing deep level theoretical and clinical
orientation to all the faculties in institutions irrespective of discipline .
• There is no need of demarcation of clinical and nonclinical subjects in
Ayurveda as Ayurveda is entirely clinical and nothing academic or lab oriented.
• Highly specific and specialised training in recognising acute conditions like
Myocardial infarction, Appendicitis, Renal colic, Acute Asthma etc and
Ayurvedic scientific strategies to be adopted are to be trained systematically in
fully fledged teaching hospitals
• There should be basic training in catheter insertion procedure, oxygen administration,
Ayurvedic resuscitation procedure etc .
• Knowledge on Trauma care, ulcer management and fracture management in
Ayurveda is to be provided based on Science Based Evidence Based Ayurveda
• Science Based Evidence Based Ayurvedic knowledge and management of all diseases
of infective, inflammatory, metabolic , immune, circulatory origin irrespective of
speciality along with knowledge of modern medicine of the same.
• There should be frequent case presentations in Ayurvedic clinical diagnostics,
Medicine and Pharmacology to constantly the clarity in co-ordination of these subjects
in Ayurvedic clinical decision making
AYURVEDA OBSTETRICS AND
The curriculum has to provide deep level orientation along with practical training for
BAMS students in skills of assisting labor .
The principles of Ayurvedic Gynaecology has to be improvised based on current
requirements like infective and inflammatory diseases , infertilify , hormonal dysfunction,
Endometriosis and Adenomyosis- Ayurvedic perspective of diagnosis and management and
all the common medical diseases of gynaecological practice today.
Ayurvedic Paediatrics must improvise and update similarly based on principles of Science
Based Evidence Based Ayurveda
Shalakya and Shalya tantra are also to be updated as Science Based Evidence Based in both
comprehension and application levels . Practical training is mandatory in all the surgical
techniques and post operative SBEBA guidelines are to be trained systematically
Ayurvedic research methodology is to be compulsorily adopted from second year onwards
Clinical OPDs must train SBEBA Clinical decision making methodology and practical
examinations must adopt these objective parametersof science of Ayurveda for evaluation
of performance of students. Currently no standards are adopted for evaluation of
performance of students in clinical evaluation .
Evaluation process must include analytical aspects like “ write the SBEBA diagnostic
algorithms in a patient of Acute Bronchial Asthma “ etc
Science led clinical decision making is as important as clinical examination process , the
former is but completely neglected today owing to poor comprehensive standards of
faculties in knowledge and practice of Science Based Medicine . How and Why questions
are to be incorporated with respect to specific situation in subject
Scientific medical practitioners are to emerge in Ayurveda in place of current prescribers
Mixopathy practices and aimless polytherapy adopted today has to end permanently
Ayurvedic research and clinical practice guidelines are to emerge independently and thereby
establish the innate scientificty and potential of Ayurveda.
Ayurvedic science has innate and independent comprehensive standards and principles of practice
of Science Based Medicine and hence no sort of integration in treatment is appreciable in the same
patient at the same time
Useless things in present curriculum like that of medical botany and lab technology are to be
discarded and crucially intended things for clinical practice are mandatory
Principles of practice of Translational Medicine by adopting the rationl standards of Science Based
Evidence Based Ayurveda will produce scientific renaissance of Ayurveda
