Ayurvedic Doctors and Practitioners

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Ayurvedic practitioners and doctors who plan to work as physicians in the United States must take an examination to be licensed to practice. Every state requires such an examination. It is conducted through the board of medical examiners in each state. Some states have reciprocity agreements with other states so that a physician licensed in one state may be automatically licensed in another without being required to pass another examination. This is not true throughout the United States, however, so it is wise to find out about licensing procedures before planning to move. Board certification is also available in a variety of medical specialties. Those seeking to become board certified participate in residencies that last up to seven years and must pass an examination by a member board of the American Board of Medical Specialties or the American Osteopathic Association.
