Gujarat Ayurved University located in Jamnagar city, situated on the western part of Gujarat state is a unique and the only statutory University of its kind. It offers advanced courses on all aspects of Ayurveda. Taking into consideration the rapid increase of worldwide interest and demand for the plant based drugs in the last few decades leading to large scale commercial production of both classical and proprietary herbal formulations in the country, it has introduced several courses designed in the context of the present situation, covering different aspects of Ayurveda and allied traditional systems of medicine. Introduction of these multidisciplinary courses in the present times is considered most opportune, since the global demand for herbal preparations is growing in an exponential manner. India is a rich treasure of medicinal plants and can become the main source for supply of herbal drugs to the whole world but lack of or inadequate quality standards of raw material has been one of the major impediments in wider acceptance of herbal drugs. Various international agencies like World Health Organization have been emphasizing on the importance and need of standardization of herbal raw material.
Skilled technical man power possessing the knowledge on all aspects of medicinal plants are needed for this. Sensing its urgency, an effort was put forth by establishing a self finance institute for awarding M.Sc. Degree in Medicinal Plant Science & M. Pharm (Ayu.) by Gujarat Ayurved University in the year 1999-2000 which has been merged in the year 2006 with Dravayaguna department of Institute of Post Graduate Teaching and Research in Ayurveda providing all the laboratory facilities and infrastructure for the betterment of the course. Some of our alumni’s have joined research institutes as research Associates, while many others have joined reputed Industries of India. It is gratified to note that the course has been recognized various, well-known government organizations like ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research) CCRAS (Central Council for Research in Ayurveda and Siddha) etc.
