Dr. Vijith:

“The first week (5 days) will be used to teach theory of diagnosis & treatment of Vata Vyadhi. Simultaneously we will prepare medicines used in Vata Vyadhi in our pharmacy. Students can observe as well as participate in this during all possible hours. So this week will look like:

• 5.30 am waking up, half an hour for morning routine.
• 6 am morning lessons will start.
• 8 am first break for nasya & vyaayaama.
• 9 am shower
• 9.30 am breakfast
• 10.30- 11.30 am practical session identifying & processing herbs used for Vata Vyadhi
• 11.30am - 12 pm break
• 12pm – 1 pm theory class.
• 2 pm lunch break
• 2-3 pm practical pharmacy training
• 3.30 pm tea break
• 3.30 -5.30 pm theory class or practical training in practical methods used in Vata Vyadhi.
• 5.30- 6 pm refresh or shower
• 6- 7 pm dinner
• 7 pm visit to nearby Siva temple (optional)
• 9 pm bed time.

After the first weekend we start medical camp for Vata Vyadhi in the 2nd week. We will do consultation for 10 patients per day. So appr. 50 patients in a week. We will divide students into groups of 5 people. When one group sits in outpatient consultation room with me, the other group will stay with Dr. Vidya to dispense medicine for the patients. Both groups will get explanation from both of us. Consultation starts from morning 10 to 1 noon. Then 2-5pm. We will interchange the batch from morning to afternoon. We work with a software for clinical documentation. That will give reports, which the students can take.

Third week also, we will do follow up for the same patients, and in selected 10 cases we will do whatever external therapies are needed. The same working hours will be spent on seeing the follow up patients & also doing treatments for the patients.”

Weekends: optional excursions backwaters & mountains in Kerala, time for assignments and integration.
