Ayurvedic Doctors and Practitioners
If Ayurvedic medicine interests you, learn as much as possible
about health, medicine, science, and anatomy while in high school,
just as you would to prepare for a career in Western medicine.
Courses in biology and chemistry are important. It will also be
important to study the Hindu tradition and become familiar with
Sanskrit terms. Studying Sanskrit, the language of the Vedas and
the Ayurvedic texts, is a good idea, although it is not absolutely
essential. Although Sanskrit is not offered in high schools,
correspondence courses are available, and students in large cities
may find Sanskrit courses at universities or may find teachers in
an Indian community.
