New MBBS syllabus to offer AYUSH as elective subject
Undergraduate medical students will be given the option of choosing Ayush (Ayurveda, yoga and naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homeopathy) systems as an elective subject for the academic year 2019-2020.

The statement was released by a top functionary of the Board of Governors (BoG). The new syllabus received final approval from the BoG last month and is due to be implemented from August 2019

The 3-month module will be designed by Ayush ministry. The initiative is aimed at introducing future doctors to alternative systems of medicine.

“It is to give a hang of the alternative systems of medicine to the students of allopathy. Ayush systems can play a great role in promoting preventive health. However, it will not be mandatory for medical students,” said Dr. V K Paul, Chairman, BoG. “The students will get to visit Ayush hospitals, attend outpatient departments (OPDs), etc,” he further added.
