CCIM issues notification to streamline provisions of regulations concerning Post Graduate Ayurveda Education

ccimindia.org
Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM), the statutory body that regulates the Indian Medical systems of Ayurveda, Siddha, Sowa-Rigpa and Unani Medicine has issued a notification to streamline some of the provisions of the regulations concerning Post Graduate Ayurveda Education. The notification has added clarity and definition.
 
The notification relates to the Shalya and Shalakya streams of Post Graduate Education in Ayurveda. It specifies a total of 58 surgical procedures that PG scholars of these streams need to be practically trained in so as to enable them to independently perform the said activities after completion of their PG Degree. Shalya and Shalakya are independent Departments in Ayurveda colleges, performing such surgical procedures.
 
The Ministry categorically said, it has not received any comments or objections about the use of modern terminology in the said notification, and is hence not aware of any such controversy.

It is, however, clarified that all scientific advances including standardized terminologies are inheritances of the entire mankind. No individual or group has monopoly over these terminologies. The modern terminologies in the field of medicine are not modern from a temporal perspective, but are derived substantially from ancient languages like Greek, Latin and even Sanskrit, and later languages like Arabic.
 
The purpose of all modern scientific terminology is to facilitate effective communication and correspondence among the different stake-holders. The stake-holders of the instant notification include not just the Ayurveda practitioners but also professionals of other stake-holding disciplines like the medico-legal, health IT, insurance as well as the members of the public. The question of mixing Ayurveda with Conventional (Modern) Medicine does not arise here as CCIM is deeply committed to maintaining the authenticity of Indian systems of medicine.
