6.        Syllabus for Graded Degree Course :-    The following shall be the syllabus for the BHMS (Graded Degree) 
            Course, namely:-

           (1) Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine:- Homoeopathy has a distinct approach to discuses. It recognizes disease       neither by prominent symptoms nor by those of any organ or part of the body. It treats the patient as a whole and the totality of symptoms exhibited by him represents the disease. Merely the name of the condition from which he suffers is thus of no significance to a Homoeopath. Therefore, in the Graded Degree Course, the subject of Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine including Pediatrics, Preventive and Social Medicine, Surgery, Obstetics and Gyneacology and Systemic Pathology has been introduced on an integrated manner.

            Medicine is essentially a practical science with stress on systematic disease diagnostic pattern of case taking whereas Homoeopathic Medicine has a variation with stress on constitution, liking/disliking, thermal reaction, mental set up (including behavior) focusing individualization besides, systematic diseases diagnosis. Therefore, practice of  Homoeopathic Medicine becomes practical. Therefore the teaching and training at the bed-side approach is introduced to inculcate such practical aspects in the mind of the students, to prepare them true Homoeopathic. The  following is the course of study for Practice or Homoeopathic Medicine:

            A course of systematic instructions on the Principles and Practice of Homoeopathic Medicine inclusive of therapcutic 
            prescribing.

            The instructions may be given in following manner during 1-1/2 years of clinical course in Practice of Homoeopathic 
            Medicine.

            (A) A course of General and Systemic Pathology:
            (B) A course of Preventive and Social Medicine which includes communicable diseases, its prevention, environmental 
                  medicine and Family Welfare;
            (C) Paediatrics: The emphasis should be laid on growth and development of child and common discuses of children.
            (D) Surgery: A large number of conditions are amenable to internal medication in Homoeopathy. The scope of          Homoeopathy is much wider in the case with surgical dimensions but as supplement to be taught accordingly with that orientation.
                   Therefore, a course of instructions on the principles of surgery shall be-
                    (a) Practical instructions in surgical methods including Physiotherapy;
                    (b) Practical instructions in minor operative surgery;
                    (c) Lectures and demonstrations on radiology;
                    (d) Venereal diseases;
                    (e) Orthopedics;
                    (f) Dental Diseases;
                    (g) Surgical diseases of children;
                    (h) Neurosurgery;
                    (i) E.N.T.
                    (j) Opthalmology

                    Lectures and demonstration on surgical appliances and methods of Physiotherapy.

                    Instructions in these branches of medicine should be directed to the attainment of sufficient knowledge to ensure familiarity with the common conditions, their recognition and homoeopathic treatment.

         (E)     Obstetrics and Gynaecology: Students must be trained in special clinical methods of investigation for diagnosis    local conditions and discriminating cases where surgical intervention, either as a life saving measure or for removing mechanical obstacles is necessary. In this context Homoeopathy adopts the same attitude towards medicine and surgery.

                    A course of systematic instructions on the principles and practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Infant Hygiene with therapeutic prescribing should be given. Throughout the whole period of study, students should be directed towards the importance of diagnosis, prevention and management aspect of the conditions. The instructions in this branch of medicine should be directed to the attainment of sufficient knowledge to ensure familiarity with common conditions, recognition, recognition and treatment.

                    In addition to the subjects mentioned above, instructions in clinical medicine may be given on the diseases of different body systems including common diseases of skin.

            (F)   Homoeopathic Materia Medica :     

                    (a)    Homoeopathic Materia Medica : a) Homoepathic Materia is diffrently constructed as compted to other Meteria Medicas. Homoeopathy considers that study of the action of drugs on individual parts or system of the body or on animals or isolate organs is only a partial study of life processes under action and that it does not lead us to full appreciation of the action of the medicinal agent; the drug agent as a whole is lost sight of.
                    (b)    Essential and complete knowledge of the drug action as a whole car be supplied only by qualitative synoptic drug experiments on healthy persons and alone can make it possible to view all the scattered data in relation  to psychosomatic whole of a person; and it is just such a person as a whole to the knowledge of drug is to be applied.
                    (c)    The Homoeopathic Materia Medica consists of a schematic arrangement of symptoms produced by each drug incorporation no theories or explanations about their interoperation or inter-relationship. Each drug should be studied synthetically, analyzable and comparatively and this alone would enable a homoeopathic student to study each drug individually and as a whole and help him to be a good prescribe.
                    (d)    Polytheists and the most commonly indicated drugs for everyday ailments should be taken up first so that in the clinical classes or outdoor duties the students becomes familiar with their application. They should be  thoroughly dealt with explaining all comparisons and relationship. Students should be conversant with their sphere of action and family relationship
                            The less common and rare drugs should be taught in outline, emphasizing only their most salient features and symptoms. Rarer drugs should be dealt with later.
                   (e)    Tutorials must be introduced so that students in small number can be in close touch with teachers and can be helped study and understand Materia Medica in relation to its application in the treatment of the sick.
                    (f)    While teaching therapeutics an attempt should be made to recall the Materia Medica so that indication for drugs in a clinical conditions can directly flow out from the proving of the drugs concerned. The student should and not limit himself to memories a few drugs for a particular disease. This Hahnemanian approach  will not only him in understanding the proper perspective of  symptoms as applied and their curative value in sickness but will even lighten his burden as far as formal examinations are concerned. Otherwise the present trend produces the allopathic approach to treatment of diseases and is contradictory to the teaching of Organ on.

                            Application of  Materia Medica should be demonstrated from cases in the outdoor and hospital wards.

                            Lectures on comparative Materai Medica and therapeutics as well tutorials should be as far as possible be  integrated with lectures on clinical medicine in the various departments.

                    (g)    For the teaching of drugs the college should keep herbarium sheets and other specimens for demonstration  to the students. Lectures should be made interesting and slides of plants and materials may be projected.

                    (h)    (1) Introductory lectures:

                            Teaching of the Homeopathic Materia Medica should include:
                            (i) Nature and scope of Homoeopathic Materia Medica,
                            (ii) Sources of Homoepathic Materia Medica, and 
                            (iii) Different ways of studying the Materia Medica.                            

                            (2) The drugs to be taught under the following heads:
                            (i) Common name, natural order, habitat, part used, preparation.
                            (ii) Sources of drug proving.
                            (iii) Symptomatisation of the drug emphasizing the characteristics, symptoms and modalities.
                            (iv) Comparative study of drugs.
                            (v) Complementary, inimical, antidotal and concordant temedies.
                            (vi) Therapeutic application (Applied Material Medica)

                            The list of dtugs to be taught in BHMS (Grade Degree Course) are as per Appendix.

                    (G)   Organon and Principles of Homoeopathic Philosophy: Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine is the high water mark of medical philosophy. It is an original contribution in the field of medicine in a codified form. A study  of the Organon as well as of the history of Homoeopathy and its founder's life story will show that  Homoeopathy is a product of application of the inductive logical method of reasoning to the solution of one of the greatest problems of humanity namely the treatment and cure of the sick. A through acquaintance  with the fundamental principles of logic, both deductive and inductive is therefore essential. The Organon Should accordingly be taught in such a manner as to make to the students the implications of the principles  by which Homoeopathy was worked out and built up and with which a Homoeopathic physician has to  conduct his daily work with ease and facility in treating every concrete individual case.

                             The practical portions should be thoroughly understood and remembered for guidance practical work as
                             a physician.
