    what do you mean by allowed? If a person can work in a field he should do. Govt has allowed some 8 month train worker to practice allopathy with “H” drugs. The field worker of health who are not MBBS are permitting to practice allopathy drugs in the field in absence of MBBS doctor but they are trained for 8 to 12 months only. So according to me to practice allopathy if one take 1 year training he can give first aid and primary treatment. Now the question is the education on the field for qualified. To practice in allopathy One should be minimum graduate in that field for batter serve. BAMS/BUMS/BHMS/BSMS are also trained in the same way of MBBS with their subject and if they are being trained for short term of allopathy with their own than it can be more helpfull for our total nation health and in the same way MBBS are also should be trained for some Ayurved/Unani/Homeopath etc.I think one should think for our country total health without westing time to controversy.

    this is a ridiculous article written by someone who is pathetic in knowledge about medical degree holders and their rights to practise by law. A 51/2 year degree recognised by govt as equivalent to Mbbs because of its difficult course and similar practicality and rules including internship has all the rights to practise what he studies within the country. I think you should go through the curriculum for bams doctors provided by CCIM , their eligibilities and their legal rights to practise. And surgeries? No one can deny the students of sushruta who was the first surgeon of the world to conduct surgeries when every thing is taught to them according to evolving sciences . So get your knowledge right and then come back.

  3. BAMS Ayurvedic doctors in their professional courses were taught Ayurveda with modern medicines. Some BAMS doctors good knowledge about Allopathy too. Currently BAMS doctors are encouraged to use modern medical science for diagnosing the health condition only and not treating.

    Most BAMS Ayurvedic doctors are found practising modern medicines in most of the parts of India. Practising modern medicine for Ayurvedic doctors in modern day has always been a controversial issue in India.

    As far as medical professional practice is concerned in India, currently no ayurvedic practitioner can successful without support of modern science including usage of emergency drugs and diagnostics methods. It is also true that no allopathic practitioner can be successful without using natural resources and healthy eating’s and life style measures.

    Government should be carefully responsible before giving registration to health care practitioners and permitting them with their medico-legal rights to open their clinics and do professional practices.

    As far as Surgery is concerned, more strict regulations are necessary and should never be allowed without proper qualification and expertise. The “malpractices of doctors” should be controlled with tough hand, effective “Lokpal” and severe penalty.

    The public illness is managed by doctors and the “doctors illness” should be managed by police.

    I agree.Moreover IMCC can arrange a test for BAMS/BUMS graduates, after qualifying it they must be allowed to practice in Allopathic system of medicine.
