The notice dated November 19 recorded the strategies that will be remembered for the PG training of Ayurveda doctors by modifying the Indian Medicine Central Council (Post Graduate Ayurveda Education) Regulations, 2016. It expressed that the modifications were being made with the assent of the central government.
During the time of study, post-graduate researchers of Shalya tantra (a general medical surgery) and Shalakya tantra (medical surgeries of the ear, nose, throat, head and eye) will be for all intents and practically prepared to perform different surgeries independently. General surgical procedures incorporate removal of gangrene, skin grafting, laparotomy (opening up of the abdomen), many developed gastro-intestinal medical procedures. Under Shalakya tantra they will be prepared to perform genuinely developed ophthalmic medical procedures, for example, iris prolapse a medical surgery, squint a surgical procedure, cataract surgical procedures, of all types.
"Postgraduate courses in a medical surgery, ENT and ophthalmology have been there in ayurved since 20-25 years and we have consistently had surgical OPDs... Nobody had investigated the lawfulness of what has been occurring for quite a long time. Thus, after discussion with the ministry and Niti Aayog, it was preferred to explicitly state it down to clarify that what is as of now being done is legitimate," clarified Dr Jayant Deopujari the leader of Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM).
"General a medical surgery is an integral part of present day medical science which can't be mainstreamed with ayurveda. Acquainting preparing modules with the postgraduate educational plan of ayurvedic contemplates prompting titles, for example, MS (Ayurved) can possibly upset and risk the essential norms of care and security of patients," said Dr P Raghu Ram, leader of the Association of Surgeons of India.
The Indian Medical Association has hammered the Central Council of Indian Medicine, the administrative body for the examination and practice of Ayurveda in India, for permitting its professionals to do general a medical surgery, for example, ophthalmology and dental procedure.
Dr Rajan Sharma, president, IMA, said they had denounced the "uncivil" methods of the Central Council of Indian Medicine to "arrogate itself to vivisect present day medication and enable its professionals with undeserving territories of training".
The IMA has encouraged the Council to build up its own careful controls from antiquated writings and not prerogative surgical disciplines of present day medication as its own.
