All career opportunities for BAMS doctors abroad

This is an epoch where millions of students pursue medical care careers. BAMS (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery) is a five-and-a-half-year degree program covering analyzes of the integrated traditional ayurvedic system and modern medicine. Out of 5.5 years in therapy, 4.5 years in nursing, and one year in an internship, this doctorate is highly appreciated in India and abroad.

Ayurveda is a field in medicine that has been getting recognition in the whole world for the past few decades. But if we look at the ancient history of India, we will come to know that this field existed from thousand years ago!

You may also hear about this once in your life. It is harder to become a BAMS doctor than an MBBS doctor. In AIIMS (A highly appreciated medical university in India ) the average salary of a BMAS doctor ranges from 1,065$ to 1,500$.

So, many students from an early age are interested in Indian tradition and history. Some take one step forward and decide to continue to make their career in this field only. 

BAMS is the degree that is required to become “An ayurvedic Doctor.”

Many students think that it is a good scope for a career in  India only, not in the outside world. It is not correct, there are many job opportunities abroad too.

However, there is limited scope abroad. In some countries like the USA, many ayurvedic medicines are banned as lead content is high.

Do not expect an excellent salary abroad. BAMS people may claim that they are most wanted. But the fact is that it is not valid. Getting a license to practice abroad in Alternative Medicine( Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha, etc.) is difficult.
