Unani medicine originated in Greece and is primarily based on the principles propounded by the ancient Greek practitioners Hippocrates and Galen. Over the subsequent centuries, a number of Arab and Persian scholars enriched the system, among them Ibn Sina, who is also known as Avicenna. Both Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery and Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery courses have subjects that cover modern practice of medicine and surgery.
