Private practice is the best option than any other job – that gives you more social reputation and financial maturity. In Govt sector or hospitals – they will give you fixed salary but that has limits. But if you have time and dedication, private practice will give you more income and social reputation.
- A clinician in private practice enjoys an autonomy that cannot be experienced in a hospital based setting
- Services provided by small private clinics are heavily relied on by significant part of Indian population.
- Assuring quality service is therefore important on the part of the clinician
Qualified practitioners & institutions in India
So comparing to other systems, lesser number of doctors and dispensaries are in homoeopathy – So India need more and more homoeopathy doctors and hospitals
Which sector is better ?
- IT – More stress, less life
- Business – More pressure, more dead money or product, more competition
- Real Estate – In a great dilemma at the time of recession, more corrupt
- Doctor – Comfortable as per our convenience. More earnings with less investment.
Which system is better for private practice and why?
Allopathy – at least Post-graduation required, so to study nearly 11 years
Dental – Cost of the clinic, cost of the treatment, lesser number of patients since patient visit to dentist limited as last resort
Ayurveda – more quack practitioners with social acceptability, cost of medicine unaffordable to common man, lot of diet restrictions and difficult to consume.
Homoeopathy – BHMS is enough in-order to get a good private practice, easily administered, cost of clinic and cost of medicine are less than other systems of medicine,
More placement & More private practice since less number of doctors in homoeopathy
Admission to various courses in India
- BHMS : 12,000
- MBBS : 60,000
- BAMS : 15265
So Homoeopathy doctors are lesser in number comparing to other streams
In private practice the income depends totally on the effort you put in and your professional reputation. A BHMS graduate working in private sector can earn more than what he earns in government sector. But you have to sit in a clinic at-least for two years in order to become an established doctor.
Never wait for a Government job, start your practice immediately after completing the course. You can continue your practice even after getting a job. It is not possible to practice after acquiring all the knowledge, that will take time.
