Samajam was the first to set up a Padanalayam, a college to the public for studies in Ayurveda with a mind to create genuine physicians. In this regard it gave stipend to the students and trained them under the most efficient hands in this field present during those days. The duration of the course was for three years and a degree ‘Vaidya’ was conferred at the end of its successful completion. For those completing 11/2 years of course, a degree ‘Upavaidya’ was awarded. Thus in the early decades of the last century pupil learned about the principles and practices of Ayurveda at the Samajam.
The British Government learned about these practices and got themselves convinced about its quality and merit and subsequently recognized and endorsed it. Later the best amongst those who completed the course were accredited with title “Vaidypadan”, an authentic certificate by the then council of physicians of the Samajam with the permission of British Govt. to practice Ayurveda.
