Medical Seminars In Ancient India

Medical Seminars In Ancient India Medical seminars and symposia are not a new phenomena ! They existed in ancient India where indeed there were codified rules of debate and discussion. Dr B S Mehta illustratively discusses a few important medical seminars that were held in ancient India. Given the scholarly tenor of the debates, he writes, these deserve to be included in medical encyclopaedias. Indian medicine has a long tradition and a history we can be proud of. Unfortunately, most of it is very poorly documented. This series of articles on the history of Indian medicine from the magazine, HouseCalls, is a treasure trove of valuable detail , based on painstaking research, which deserves a wider audience. I hope someone publishes these articles in a book, which all Indians can be proud of !
