Career Guidance & Entrepreneurship

Career Guidance & Entrepreneurship

1 st December, 2016

The students after completing their Masters or doctoral studies in Ayurveda are confused and concerned about their career. While majority of the students try for a faculty position in colleges, equal focus is given on the clinical practice. The choice of career options beyond these two most travelled paths is still not a very common phenomenon. This is primarily because lack of exposure to other available options and their details. This workshop will make the students aware of career options available, requirements, scope of these options and skills they should learn to excel.

Further, on the background of campaigns like ‘Start ups’ and ‘Make in India’, this workshop will also deal with a special session on ‘Entrepreneurship development’. This session will cover aspects like opportunities for Entrepreneurship in AYUSH sector, funding sources, sectors of Entrepreneurship such as clinical, medical tourism, small & medium scale production units, consultancy, informatics, instrumentation, and harvesting etc.
