  • You have not asked for the list of colleges, hence answering your questions in order.

    After completing BHMS what are the job opportunities?

    Currently in India, less than one doctor every 1,000 citizens. And there is the National Medical Commission (NMC) bill, if passed will have a one year bridge course that would allow AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Sidda and Homeopathy) doctors to practice modern medicine also.

    In India, allopathic medicine is not available to all, cannot be afforded by all and people do not trust allopathic medicine alone. So, there is an ever increasing role and demand for BHMS doctors in various fields. Homepathic is once such field that has captured the attention of public at large and there are several chains who have opened homeopathic centers like the modern day coroporate medical hospitals. So, once you finish your BHMS, you will have a scope to practice idenpendently, job any of the naturopathy related hospitals, clinics and wellness centers all around India.

    After BHMS you can do further PG courses related to regenerative medicine, psychiatry. You can also have your own consultancy, enter into research or even join a government institution.

    Some even consider doing a MHA ( masters in hospital adminisration), if they have the flair and apittude for administration.

    For getting admission for BHMS in aided collages/private collages ,how much is the donation?

    The concept of donation is prevalent in health care, if you choose a good goverment istitution, then you need not worry about it. If you choose a private one, then please enquire locally as there are based on the current demand and local factors.

    Is BHMS course in Tamilnadu is valid in the same way as that in Kerala?

    Once you finisht the BHMS course, then you need to register with the state and then Central COunicl of Homeopathy ( The course would be valid but if you are changing states, then please inform the state in which you intend to practice because you need a valid license to do it in that state.

    To get admission in a government Homeo medical collage what should be the rank in NEET and Kerala rank list?

    You need to have a 50% marks in 10+2 class to be eligible and you need to have physics, chemistry and biology in 12th standard. some students write the national and eligibility cum entrance test but this is not mandatory, many states have the local CET like exams. The ranks would vary on the cut offs, I wouldn't worry so much, do well, complete your NEET and the KEAM of Kerala, if you are good, then you might even get and MBBS seat, if not you can work on the BHMS admissions.
