**After doing BHMS, you can do MD in following subjects at present - Materia Medica, Organon/Philosophy, Repertory, Paediatrics, Dermatology etc. But you can not do MS, i.e., you can not become a surgeon.

**The scope in the field in only limited by your own potential. After graduating in homeopathy you can work as a goverment doctor, or have your own private practise. You can also teach in a homeopathy college (more than 200 in India). You can also go into research by joining CCRH. Financially and socially, the scope is limited by your own potential. Plus the joy of curing that homeopathy can give, can rarely be felt in other systems of medicine.
so if it is done carefully you have good scope in future.
