Intending to connect their lives with medicine, future applicants are faced with such concepts as
MBBS, BAMS, BHMS. What do they mean, how do they differ, what do they have in common,
what is more difficult? These are the different streams of medicine depending upon the remedies
they use. Syllabus in first few years is almost the same but subsequent years it differs. According
to the trends of NEET UG sequence of opting the stream is MBBS> BAMS> BHMS but may
differ depending upon the candidates choice. Which is really difficult – MBBS or BAMS?

- MBBS stands for bachelor in medicine and bachelor in surgery. It is an academic degree
in allopathy. After completing your diploma you can do MS and specialize yourself in
any particular field. This is a classic difficult medicine based on research and drug
development. Wide difference in specializations — from pediatrician to dermatologist,
work in clinics and hospitals. The widest practice with this diploma holders.
- BAMS – Classical and BAMS difference is that it is academic degree in Ayurveda. After
completing BAMS you can go higher in it like MS in ayurveda, but you cannot go with
MBBS after it. Also you can work in Healthcare IT, Ayurvedical Private Medical
colleges, Treatment Tourism, Research Laboratories, Pharma industry, etc. or open your
own clinic. This field is very innovative as there are always new things that to be
discovered. Recently, Ayurveda has become very popular not only among the Indians,
but also in Europe and the USA. Ayurvedic clinics in different European countries are
opening, a large number of tourists travel to the homeland of Ayurveda, to India. The
number of medical tourists to India is growing, but often it is a great difference as there is
just a tribute to fashion than a really working technology. And which is tough – MBBS or
BAMS? BAMS is really specialized, but with BAMS some has less ways to carrierstairs.
And one can’t say which is better, MBBS or BAMS — both of them are considered equal
in the eye of law but the truth is first one is given importance over BAMS by indian
society, it’s better but more difficult.
- BHMS – Difference that it is Homoeopathy. At BHMS after first year students study
difficult homoeopathic subjects like Organon or principles of our system, materia medica
or drug pictures, used in better treating diseases , homoeopathic therapeutics and related
subjects – homoeopharmacy, but no allopathic pharmacology. Homoeopathy needs more
difficult study as you are supposed to be better in both worlds with difference but they
are usually poor in anatomy and pathology though as they're less focused. But younger
generation homoeopaths possess better theory knowledge. And which is easier and better
– BHMS or MBBS? It’s just two different directions in medical.
