General Information

Course Materials:

The syllabus of the various courses of the Council are as per standard of and based on the syllabus prescribed by the Ministry of Health, Government of India and various other national and international universities, premiere medical institutions and important societies working in the field of alternative medicines. The course materials will be provided by the Council of Alternative Systems of Medicines which are designed to follow the adult education method of self-study. The course materials are simple, self-explanatory, yet in-depth and exhaustive. It is enough to study the course materials alone to pass the examinations. The course materials are sent within 2 weeks to students within India and within 3 weeks to International students (students residing outside India).


Two options are introduced for the examination.


The students are assessed on the basis of their course assignments and examination. The Council of Alternative Systems of Medicines believes that the three-hour examination is an obsolete method of assessing students’ true potentials. After the scheduled duration of the course, the Council sends the question papers to the students, which have to be answered at their comfortable place and timings. The candidates are required to submit their answer-sheets within the prescribed time limit to the Institute. This unique methodology helps students to write best answers based on their acquired knowledge through course materials as well as their personal experience. CASM has designed this liberal and unique methodology that allows students to make maximum benefits of their knowledge and experience. The panel of faculty and examiners design the question papers in such a way that there may be no option of copying the answers and will require personal skills, understanding and analysis of the subject.


If a student desires to appear for 3 hour classroom conventional examination, he can do so. The exam will be conducted in Kolkata centre. However the Centre may be opened in other cities also subject to the sufficient number of students opting for the examination in the concerned city. The students should intimate their choice of option for examination at the time of enrollment.


The Result of the Examination will be declared within 4 weeks from the date of conduct of examination.
