The Roganidana department became functioning as a separate department during 1998, when the department system was implemented in the Ayurveda Colleges across the country. The department deals with the clinical training of graduate students on the Ayurvedic basics of diseases, methods of Ayurvedic diagnosis as well as the modern clinical methods and diagnostic techniques. This department in facts bridges the Ayurvedic disease pathology and diagnosis with the modern medicine branches like Clinical medicine, Clinical Pathology, Imaging techniques etc. There are OPD and IPD under the department that provide opportunity for the students to understand and practice the Ayurvedic and modern clinical methods and also observe different stages of diseases. The clinical as well as the biochemistry lab, the X ray unit and the ECG unit functioning in the Govt Ayurveda College Hospital, Thiruvananthapuram are all annexed to the department. The Internees are given training in these diagnostic units as recommended by the CCIM curriculum.

Roganidana was only a subject taught in the second or third year of BAM and the BAMS courses before 1998. During 1990, the curriculum of the BAMS course was made elaborate by the Central Council of Indian Medicine, which was taught by the then undergraduate section of Kayachikitsa Department. Later in 1998, when departmental system was implemented in the Institution, the Department of Roganidana came into existence. The teaching faculty of the department are postgraduates in Roganidana or Kayachikitsa (the allied subject) as per the CCIM regulations.



The department functions with the required office space stipulated by the CCIM. It has a well equipped students' lab and a lecture hall. The department is well equipped with the audio-visual aids necessary for effective teaching. The Clinical lab is working in two rooms. One room is situated in the OP block where the collection of samples and the routine haematology and urine analysis are done. The Biochemistry tests and the serology tests are done in the other room. The X ray unit functions in the underground floor of the IP block of the Hospital with the necessary precautionary measures ensuring radiation safety. The ECG Unit functions in the ground floor of the academic block just adjacent to the OP block.
