Dear Vaisahali,

BHMS stands for Bachelors Degree in Homeopathy Medicine and Surgery. In India this course is equivalent to MBBS. It is a 5.5 yrs course, which includes 1 year internship. The subjects that are taught to students in BHMS course are Homeopathy philospohy, Materia Medica, Repertory, Pharmacy and all other subjects that are taught in MBBS like Anatomy, Physiology, Embryology, Pathology, Microbiology, Orthopedics, ENT, Ophthalmology, Gynecology, Obstetrics, Preventive and Social Medicine, Surgery, Medicine, Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, Psychology etc.

After doing BHMS, you can do MD in following subjects at present – Materia Medica, Organon/Philosophy, Repertory, Paediatrics, Dermatology, Practice of Medicine, Psychiatry. But you cannot do MS, i.e., you cannot become a surgeon.

The scope in the field in only limited by your own potential. After graduating in homeopathy, you can work as a government doctor or have your own private practice. You can also teach in a homeopathy college (more than 180 in India). You can also go into research by joining CCRH. Financially and socially, the scope is limited by your own potential. Plus the joy of curing that homeopathy can give, can rarely be felt in other systems of medicine. In all government departments, homeopathy doctors are paid salary which is equal to their allopathic counterparts.

To start learning homeopathy through distance education, you can take this homeopathy elementary online course

To learn homeopathy more deeply through an online homeopathy course, you can take this online homeopathy course

But in India you do need a BHMS degree to practice homeopathy.

You can find a list of homeopathy colleges here

Some other questions that get commonly asked –

Can I do BHMS if I am from Arts or Commerce stream?

No. You need to do your 12th with Science-Biology to get admission to BHMS.

Can I do BHMS part time or from distance education?

No. It is a full time regular course. In India no part-time course or online course or distance education course is considered a valid legal qualification to practice homeopathy.

How to take admission in BHMS?

Each state/University conducts it’s own entrance exam. Contact the college where you wish to take admission to know more. Also, private colleges offer seats on management quota too.

Best wishes,
Dr. Manish Bhatia

  • Hi Dr,

    My sister wanted to persue MBBS & then do MD to be an gynecologist but due to some reasons she couldnot take up MBBS & wishes to do BHMS this year.

    Can u please guide me if she does BHMS then can she do MD & become a gynecologist & serve as an gynecologist exactly same as an doctor who has done his/her MBBS & MD as an gynecologist.

    Awaiting eagerly for your reply.

    Thanking you in advance

  • After doing BHMS you can only do MD in homeopathic subjects. You cannot become a gynecologist or a surgeon. One needs to be an MBBS for that. Homeopathy works on a holistic philosophy and specialization for ‘parts’ is against its fundamental basics.

  • Respected Doctor,
    I am engineering graduate working in a software field and already in my 30s. Due to some recent experiences and meet ups with some experts in Homeopathy I am becoming more and more interested in this field so much so that I would like to practice it myself. I understand my background and my age is not something very typical to be doing BHMS. What are my options?

  • dear doctor….

    i want to know that..after doing bhms…..can i become a eye specialist

  • Scope of Homoeopathy depends upon not just the potential of the individual but also his circumstances, family and financial. I have 2 friends who are homoeopaths – one is rich and practices homoeopathy 12 hours a day, (it does not matter to him if 1 or 2 patients visit him for consultation in a day), his father has brought that place for him so he does not have to pay any rent or any bills; he is also studying for M.D as he wants to appear for it externally. The other friend is an average lower middle class fellow who started earning from his final year by joining as a houseman, he continued in that same hospital during and after internship along with attending clinic of homoepath; he was already thinking about repaying the debt that he had borrowed from a bank for his education. At present he works as a medical officer in 2 hospitals in 2 different shifts as his practice could not take off (financially) and being under debt he had to switch his career to allied treatment.

    Now here both had desire to practice homoeopathy but one could do it easily thanks to his parents being in good financial health but the other had to alter his direction due to financial circumstances.
    So it is not simply down to Potential; desire and determination. These words seem good for novel or movie but in reality people do need that little bit of luck; that little bit of financial buffer.

    Of course it is same for any other profession but more so in medical profession because it takes time to develop that trust in your patients; and to seem out that time that initial period you sadly need Money.
