In India, it's typically not possible to get a lateral entry admission right into the second year of a BHMS (Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery).
The five and a half-year, full-time BHMS program offers both theoretical and practical training.
The curriculum is structured so that each succeeding year builds on the first year's core knowledge.
Lateral admission is therefore uncommon in BHMS programs.
To become qualified homeopathic practitioners, students who intend to study BHMS are normally expected to begin in the first year and finish the whole program, including the mandatory internship.
