The MScA is designed to provide training in the art and science of Ayurveda to currently enrolled NUNM students and licensed medical professionals. It can be integrated within the practice of any medical system. Ayurveda is a perfect complement to our existing core programs in naturopathic and Chinese medicine, and may also be of interest to nutrition and global health students.

The new program will include a strong foundation in Ayurvedic philosophy, classification, pathophysiology, and techniques of assessment, as well as various Ayurvedic treatment modalities including botanicals, nutraceuticals, detoxification/rejuvenation therapeutics, yoga, diet, lifestyle, and counseling. All classes are taught in English and the ancient texts have been translated to accommodate English-speaking students.

The MScA consists of 101 credits and more than 1500 hours, which include didactic and clinical components. This in-depth level of scholarship and clinical training is unique to NUNM and unavailable elsewhere in the U.S.

Academic classes will be held at NUNM, and required fieldwork and clinical internship training will take place at NUNM health centers and at accredited teaching hospitals in India.

Program Outcomes

Graduates of the MScA program will be prepared to offer integrative medical care through rigorous academic and clinical training in Ayurveda for the treatment and prevention of acute and chronic disease. While Ayurveda is not a licensed degree within the United States, students completing this program will be able to use an Ayurvedic framework from which to diagnose and treat patients within their own medical license.
