Tibbia College or the Ayurvedic & Unani Tibbia College is one of the few colleges in India that offers courses in Ayurvedic and Unani Medicines. Located in the Karol Bagh area of Delhi, the institution is affiliated to Delhi University. The institution was earlier a Madarsa, founded by Hakim Abdul Majeed in the year 1889. The making of the college as it is today, though, began in the year 1916 when Hakim Ajmal Khan, his youngest brother, made the plan of a hospital where Ayurveda and Unani sciences will be used for treatments. The institution was established by Mahatma Gandhi in the year 1921, and since then students are pursuing under-graduation degrees in Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (B.A.M.S.) as well as Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S.). These courses are of 5 and a half years duration, after which there is a compulsory 1 year internship where the student needs to practice in the hospital beside the college. Students interested in pursuing these courses need to have a pass in their class 12 in English and Hindi (for B.A.M.S.) or Urdu (for B.U.M.S.) as Hindi and Urdu are the medium of instructions and examinations for B.A.M.S. and B.U.M.S. respectively.
