Many students gets admission in DHMS and DUMS at a time, as the curriculum/syllabus of both diplomas are very much similar. We too recommend it. FTJ is very easy as medium of instruction is Urdu and unfortunately exams are conducted in very friendly atmosphere. There is also no any issue of attendance that’s why many students continue their regular studies too with DUMS. You may also get admission in pharmacy technician course if you are interested to open a allopathic medical store. It’s a two years diploma after matriculation with science. It will also help you in starting your own herbal pharmacy business.
This field requires fresh blood for research and a talented and hardworking person can earn lot of money just only with private practice. There is a great space for research minded person in this field. People are fed up with modern medicines and coming back towards nature.

Although due to efforts of National Council for Homeopathy DHMS diploma has been declared equivalent to B.Sc and BHMS equivalent to M.Sc/BS but still national council for Tibb has not succeeded in this regard.
