Bachelors in Eastern Medicine & Surgery (BEMS)


Knowledge of Natural Medicines has been a great asset of the Islamic Era. The transitional transfer of this valuable knowledge from Islamic Civilization to Europe Civilization, no doubt gave a new approach to this knowledge. This transition made tibbi knowledge “A Heritage” and it needs to be conserved.

In 2001 the Qarshi Foundation undertook a project aimed at reviving the discipline of natural medicine through generating a cadre of talented, knowledgeable, and committed Tabibs to cater to the needs of the masses using modern Tibbi knowledge and Tibbi medicines. Under this project, Foundation sponsored the establishment of the Department of Natural Medicines in different universities of the country for offering a 5-year degree program in Bachelor of Eastern Medicines and Surgery (BEMS), with a syllabus approved by the Higher Education Commission.
