Do you dream of a career in medicine? Are you interested in the concept of Ayurveda? Then, you can merge your career dream and your interest by choosing a career as an Ayurveda doctor.   Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old medicine and healthcare practice. People across the world are familiar with its immense and highly effective health benefits. With the passing of each year, more and more people are turning to Ayurveda practitioners for treating health problems. This is generating a huge demand of efficient doctors specializing in this field.

Here is a short guide regarding how to craft a secure and successful career as an Ayurveda doctor.

What are the job requirements?

The requirements for a career as an Ayurveda doctor are

  • A Bachelor’s degree in medicine with specialisation in Chiropractic, acupuncture, osteopathy or naturopathy

  • Professional training in the area of specialisation chosen at the graduation level

  • License to start clinical practice

After earning the Bachelor’s degree from an accredited University, a candidate requires pursuing professional training from an approved institution. A candidate gets the opportunity to perform clinical practice during the professional training period. The goal is to provide students practical experience. Upon the completion of professional training, a candidate has to start preparations for medical licensing examinations. Here, it is worth mentioning that the eligibility criterion for licensing exams is not the same in every state. That is why, it is necessary to check properly what the requirements in your state are before you begin preparations for exams.

What interpersonal skills are required?

Becoming a good doctor is not everyone’s cup of tea. If you have the aforementioned qualifications along with the following interpersonal qualities, you have the capability to do well as an Ayurveda doctor.

  • Ability for performing discreet scrutiny

  • Problem-solving skills

  • Communication skills

  • Listening skills

  • A polite and amicable approach towards a patient’s problems

What are the supplementary requirements?

Apart from the educational qualifications and interpersonal skills mentioned above, it is essential for an aspiring Ayurveda doctor to be well-versed in Sanskrit. The practice of Ayurveda dates back to the ancient times as already stated in the introductory paragraph. The precious Ayurveda books are written in Sanskrit which is amongst the oldest languages. In order to grasp the original concept of Ayurveda, you need to go through the books thoroughly. So, enrol in an institution that teaches Sanskrit language.

When you are prepping up as an Ayurveda doctor, you must embrace an Ayurvedic way of life meticulously in order to realise the value of Ayurveda to the core. This will also help you gain valuable knowledge about the efficacy of the natural components used vehemently in Ayurveda and also, make your patients understand their worth in a better way. Start following an Ayurvedic diet regimen that excludes caffeine, alcohol and narcotics and includes leafy vegetables, various herbs and natural oils.

Castor oil is an indispensable part of naturopathy. It is a vegetable oil obtained from the seeds of castor plant which is beneficial to prevent many skin and hair problems and it also improves digestive system. Apart from these, this herbal oil helps in getting rid of pain caused by rheumatism and arthritis.  You will learn more amazing benefits of castor oil during your degree course and professional training.

So, study hard and make good preparations for a booming career as an Ayurveda doctor.
