There are also opportunities to work in hospital and healthcare administration and health supervision Higher education opportunities are limited in some European countries where BAMS degree is not recognized. Outside certain South Asian countries, Ayurveda is not integrated with the national health system, and is therefore punishable by law to practice it unless, in some cases, the practitioner also holds the license to prescribe modern medicine.
