Abstract
Background: Advancements in medical science is reflected in medical education in terms of incorporation of newer techniques in teaching and availability of standard text books, but it is not the same in Ayurvedic education system. Objective: To propose reformations in to existing Ayurveda education system to meet the current needs. Methods: We identified some of the possible reformations and searched for relevant literature through computer based Google scholar and PUBMED indexing cites. Discussion: We identified eight possible areas where reformations can be made to meet the current needs. These areas include introduction of Standards and uniformity in the entry of students in to graduate level education in Ayurveda, Emphasis on clinical exposure to graduate students, Introduction of credit point system for academicians and practitioners, Preparation of standard textbooks, Inclusion of academic research findings in to the curricula of Ayurveda, Scope for BAMS graduates for Doctoral studies, Strengthening research and statistics teaching at UG level, Greater promotion of interpathy and interdisciplinary learning. Conclusion: Albeit these advances are not new to Ayurveda education system however the pace is not up to the desired level. Hence reformation in to the Ayurvedic education system with the consideration of above mentioned points is the need of the hour.

Key words: Ayurveda, BAMS curriculum, current needs, education, reformations
