Hello Tanvi,

Interesting, you wish to be a Doctor, but are confused which field.

To ease your confusion, let me tell you in few words about each of them and then you can take a decision.

After 12th PCB, and clearing the NEET entrance exam, you are eligible for both MBBS and BAMS. Both being a 4 years course followed by an internship.

In terms of BAMS, you qualify as an Ayurvedic doctor. You then specialise and treat patients with ancient herbs and medicines. Though the tyreatment is slow, but in most cases effective. Aftyer completing BAMS, you can open your own clinic or work in any ayurvedic clinics or pharmacy stores. Clinical reserarch or trials is another option. You can also opt for a course in Alternate medicine, naturotherapohy, panchkarma etc. Ofcourse pursuing an MD or MS in Ayurveda is there already. But you cannot pursue any other specialization that a MBBS student can opt for.

An MBBS student can practice as a general physician, someone dealing with minor ailments like cough, cold, bruises etc. They can open tyheir own clinic and treat patients for the above mentioned ailments or they can opt for an MD or MS in different genres like Cardiology, Neurologist, Radiologist, Gynaecologist, Psychiatrist, Endocrinology, Immunology etc. They can also opt for Clinical trials, or alternate medicine course.

But if you notice, as a MBBS, you have more options to specialise in and treat different ailments and specialise in one, whereas in BAMS, you can treat with only Ayurveda and that too ailments at a very preliminary stage.

Now its for you to choose.

Wish you good luck...
