Think of Homeopathy, Lord Mahavira Homeopathic Medical College is the go to place.

Lord Mahavira Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital is the most prestigious college of not just Punjab but it has a name in whole of India. It is under AYUSH. It is one of the best colleges to study Homeopathy and offers great learning and guidance to the students on how to become good doctors and serve the humanity. The admission process is simple, but qualifying NEET is compulsory. The college management is supportive and they also support the students with weak socioeconomic backgrounds to pay their fee in installments. The journey I had in the college was really nice and today I'm a Homeopathic Physician and treating patients with my knowledge and experience, thanks to the college. I would recommend that if you want to study Homeopathy, Lord Mahavira is the best college for you.
I studied BHMS which is the Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery. It is a five and a half year course with a year of internship providing practical knowledge and experience. You can take admission in the college if you have done your 12th with physics, chemistry and biology with minimum 50% marks and qualifying NEET UG is compulsory. The course of BHMS is a great course for those who want to do gentle healing to their patients and be a good doctor. All the subjects and subject teachers are supportive and helpful. But doesn't promise you a job but you can definitely start your own clinic and earn a handsome amount because of a general ask of doctors in our country and people need a good doctor for themselves and their families.
There are two teachers of each subject out of which one is an old experienced teacher and other is a dynamic new age teacher which makes it fun and easy to grasp knowledge for the students. Approximately 20-25 faculties are there and each of them have good experiences in their subjects. All the faculties are doctors themselves and teach their subjects pretty well.
There's no training and placement cell in the college and no companies visit the college for placements. No highest package thing is there and no average package too. There is no campus placement. Once you're done with your studies just leave and find a job by yourself or start your own clinic that's all.
I didn't stay in the hostel but as described by the classmates who stayed in the hostel was bit weird. The rooms are tiny and tacky. There is just a girls hostel and there is no hostel facility for boys. Total fees is approximately 35k for one year. Food quality is okay but the menu remains constant. Security system of the college is fine but needs little more up gradation. Parking space needs to be renovated as well.
The college is big enough and has a large ground which is great to sit and study or even have food and a quick walk. The library is good but washrooms need renovation. There is no cafeteria but a small canteen which is but tacky. Classrooms are fine but need some cleaning and maintenance. Not a great place to have emergency support or medical help.
Being medical students there's not a lot of time to enjoy and hangout but there are activities like seminars and workshops which are quite knowledgeable and uplifting for the students. There are not much functions, parties or celebrations going on but at times there are fresher and farewell parties which are organised by the students only. Not much of enjoyment but academically there's a lot to learn. Also the college is in the middle of the market hence there are lots of eateries around and also places to roam around.
