    If you want to pursue your career as a Homeopathic Medical doctor then BHMS if the first step which you have to take, there are many private homeopathic medical colleges are available but quality of education and practice you are getting is very important. I will recommend you Naiminath Homeopathic Medical college , Agra. Which is approved by Ayush ministry of central government for taking admission in BHMS, MD(Homeopathy) and Internship.
