Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient system and philosophy of health care native to the Indian subcontinent, sometimes considered as a Indian system medicines for health care because of its origins among the oral advice on living in the Vedas. It is used by millions of people in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka and increasingly in the west and is widely known as the oldest continuously practiced system of medicine on the planet. We have ventured into the field of imparting training in Ayurvedic system of medicines to popularize this system among the coming generations. Our Endeavour Would be to produce qualified Ayurvedic doctors well versed in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. I have practiced this system of medicine for several decades now as I am myself a qualified Ayurvedic doctor. It is pertinent to mention here that I came from a family of doctors and that is one of the strong reasons that I decided to venture into the field of education in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. Our endeavour would be to make the Punjab Ayurved Medical College & Hospital a premier institute of the northern region.
Punjab Medical Technical & General Educational Society, Patiala was founded in the Year 1998 with the view to serve the community in the field of education & particularly medical education i.e. too in ayurveda with its Founder President Dr. S.L. Arora, M.D.(Ayu.) . In the year 2000 the society started a college in paramedical sciences at Patiala but the inspiration was beyond this venture. In the year 2003 the management decided to establish an Ayurved Medical College and therefore aspired to start OPDs in Sri Ganganagar in the year 2004. The admissions to BAMS course could not be made in 2005-06, may it be the sweet will of the Almighty. The dream for admissions to this course came true in the year 2008 when The Ministry of Health & family welfare, Department of AYUSH (Government of India) granted us permission to start BAMS course with an intake capacity of 50 students and Dr. S.R. Rajasthan Ayurved University Jodhpur affiliated our college on the permission of the Government of Rajasthan. The college meets all the requirements as per the norms laid down by the CCIM, New Delhi and shall follow all the norms, guidelines and curriculum prescribed by CCIM. This was the result of the hard work put in jointly for this purpose by the members of the society under the guidance of founder president Dr. S.L. Arora.
