Hello








Thank you for choosing Mera career guide and writing to us. BAMS- Bachelor of Ayurveda Medicine and Surgery is an interesting ancient method of medical practice. This course has been on a long run since ancient times compelling the roots of ayurveda linked to our traditional practices liked to our own country India. It is a five and a half year degree that also includes a year internship and you have a variety of career opportunities post graduating with a BAMS degree.




You get a Dr title with the completion of this degree and with that you can take opportunity to work in hospitals or private clinics. You can also set up your own clinic upon practice with a general ayurvedic practitioner after a minimum of 6 months to one year. You can work as a general practitioner, participate in clinical research, or even work as an ayurveda pharmacist and consultant. Among these a general practitioner considerably earns high compared to other stream of jobs. As a general practitioner you can expect to earn a minimum of 15000 to 20000 a month and the rest of the jobs would give you a minimum pay of 10000 plus a month. But to aim for better salary you need to specialise in a stream. For example, if you are practicing as a general practitioner you can get specialised as a neuro, gynaecologist, skin, cosmetic and many more. With these specialisations one can expect an income of more than 25000 a month.




Talking about the salary abroad, it really depends in which country you would like to practice. For say, if you want to practice in the UK you can expect a minimum of 18000 pounds a year or if USA you can get a minimum of 40000$ a year. Hospitals abroad hasn't got expanded opportunities for ayurvedic medicine but there are people who set up their own private clinics and earn money. One another option is to take up research jobs abroad. For example, an ayurvedic practitioner can work as a ayurvedic researcher abroad at private research clinics. More recently there are also steps to combine our ancient ayurvedic practices with other national practices like the ancientChinesemedicine or Japanese medicine.




You can also consider studying further to increase your compensation. You can study PG Diploma in Ayurvedic practice, MD in ayurvedic practice and many more. These higher degrees can give you better employment opportunities and also better pay both in India and abroad. To mention, to increase your job opportunities abroad please try for jobs after you complete a masters degree and also a considerable years of work experience say minimum 2-3 years. Ayurvedic practices is not well established abroad like the English medicine practices and to prove your capability and to better compete a masters degree is more helpful rather only a Bachelors degree.




Hope this helps.
