Government Colleges for Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Sciences


Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Sciences, which is also called as BAMS is one of the popular courses in India mainly due to the fact that this form of medicine is an ancient medicine that found its origin in India. The course enables the students to learn the different types of treatment being used in Ayurvedic form of medicine.

Students who wish to take up BAMS course would feel easier to learn this course if they have learnt Sanskrit at their higher secondary level since this course includes a number of Sanskrit terms.
