It exemplifies the divine touch of God in the aspirants who are going to relieve sufferings of human beings in the form of physical and mental ailments.

It is equally important to develop self-discipline, dedication, perseverance and empathy by every medico who wilfully selected this profession.

Ayurveda, the indigenous medical science is having a unique way in selection of student for learning medical science and it always upholds the diligence of medical students backed by good ethical conducts.
