Second year students are required to complete, or present evidence of having completed or challenge-tested out of a two-semester, 6 to 8 semester hour credit course in college-level Anatomy and Physiology (most often offered by colleges under the title Anatomy & Physiology I & II). Such courses may include laboratory sessions (for a total of 8 credits), but this is not required; hence a 6-credit non-laboratory course will fulfill this requirement. This requirement may be fulfilled through previous coursework or through any of the standard proficiency/challenge examinations (PEP, CLEP, DANTES, TECEP, StraighterLine, etc.) including the challenge/proficiency examination offered and administered by the college for which a fee will be charged.

2nd Year Total = 1504 Hours

  • In USA (16 hours X 12 months) 192 classroom + 240 directed extramural study = 432 hours
  • In India (or other clinical intensive includes 100 client clinical encounters) = 320 hours
  • First Year hours total = 752 hours

Students who are graduates of one year programs offered at another NAMA-approved Ayurvedic institution may be permitted direct entry into our program's second year upon presentation of an official transcript and satisfactory performance on a comprehensive assessment examination. Others with analogous training may be considered for direct admission to the second year program at the discretion of the College on an individual basis in special circumstances. There will be an additional cost for the examination.

Students are permitted a period of two years (24 months) following completion of first year classes to submit completed extramural assignments required for graduation (this includes lifestyle coaching case reports, clinical case observations, presentation and outreach lecture, book reviews, etc.). After a period of two years if such requirements are left unfulfilled, the student will be withdrawn from candidacy for graduation.

Advanced Ayurvedic Studies in India (optional)

Each year, the College provides its students an opportunity to augment their classroom training with an internship at an ayurvedic institution in India with instruction at the hands of master teachers and clinicians of wide experience.

This yearly offering allows students access to ayurvedic out-patient clinics and hospitals where in supervised practice settings they observe and participate in actual client intake consultations and a variety of evaluative, treatment and aftercare procedures.

The program consists of 2 weeks clinical internship hours.

Students interact with clients presenting a wide range of acute and chronic health challenges, honing their skills in a real-world setting under the guidance of ayurvedic professionals of international renown.

In order to participate in this optional program (at additional cost) students must have successfully completed the first year of their training at Sai Ayurvedic College.
