Job Opportunities and Higher Education after BHMS

Job Opportunities and Higher Education in India after BHMS 

Dr Mansoor Ali 

Several opportunities are available for BHMS graduates across India in various sectors. 

Career avenues are open in public and private sectors for BHMS, MD graduates. Recruitment for jobs in the public sector is conducted through the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and State Public Service Commissions (PSC). Aspirants can seek employment opportunities in public hospitals, government, corporate and multichain chain dispensaries

The World Health Organization (WHO) has recognised homeopathy as the second largest therapeutic system globally, so aspirants can look forward to practising a system of medicine that is gaining increasing acceptance. It enjoys the highest level of acceptability in India, Middle East, European Countries, USA etc. Homoeopathy is practised in more than 100 countries.

Highway Mindset 

  • On highways, your headlights focused far ahead and not immediately in front of your vehicle
  • We must keep our vision far ahead because BHMS  is  only a window of opportunity to a wonderful life ahead
  • Think about higher studies or career now itself 

Govt Infrastructure
UG Colleges : 247
PG Colleges : 50
7856 Govt. homoeopathy dispensaries
207 of Govt. homoeopathy hospitals providing homoeopathy treatment.

So, you can opt job in all these government institutions. 


  • Homeopathy is growing faster than Ayurveda and Unani in India.
  • Annual growth rate of 26.3% in the past year, the highest among the other AYUSH modalities
  • 15 insurance companies providing coverage to homoeopathy in India
  • India has 2,50000 qualified homeopaths
  • Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) found that the annual average outdoor patient attendance was higher in homeopathy in comparison to ayurveda, unani and siddha.
  • Over 100 million Indians, depend solely on homeopathy.
  • It is interesting to know that India has got 2102 homoeopaths per crore population. This figure is much lower than other systems. So India need more homoeopaths 
  • Don’t worry about the ever-increasing number of doctors
  • India has 6000 births in a minute 

A Homoeopathic doctor will get more or less the same salary as that of other system doctors across India Public, Co-operative and Govt sector. 

Why BHMS is the best for Private Practice/ Job 

  • Allopathy – At least a PG is needed. More than 10 years required to earn bread and butter 
  • Ayurveda – Cost of the medicine, abundant quack practitioners across India
  • Dental – Cost of the clinic is too high. Primary patients are less
  • Homoeopathy – BHMS is sufficient, cost of the medicine and clinic is less 

Private practice is the best option than any other job.
That gives you more social reputation and financial maturity 

More opportunity 

  • BHMS : 19,000 admissions
  • MBBS : 60,000
  • BAMS : 29,470 (419 Colleges)                                             

More placement  & More private practice since less number of doctors
