A regional Continued Ayurveda Medical Education (CAME) on the burning issue of “polycystic ovary syndrome” (PCOS) was planned to be conducted on March 13, 2020, by the Department of Striroga and Prasuti Tantra, Mahatma Gandhi Ayurved College, Hospital & Research Centre (MGACH and RC), Salod (H), Wardha, Maharashtra, a constituent unit of Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences (Deemed to be University). However, owing to COVID-19 lock-down the event was organized through on-line platform on May 28, 2020. It was the first webinar organized by MGACH and RC.

The webinar aimed at disseminating knowledge and concretization of recent updates and research findings concerning the role of Ayurveda in PCOS.

The objective of the webinar was to discuss the Nidan (etiological factors) and Chikitsa (treatment) of PCOS in Ayurveda, as well as the advance modalities of treatment and modern aspects of the syndrome.

The inaugural session was graced by the presence of guest speaker Dr. Manoj Gaikwad, HOD, Department of Prasuti Tantra and Stri Rog, Government Ayurved College, Nagpur; Dr. Neema Acharya, HOD, Department of OBGY, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Wardha constituent college of Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences (Deemed to be University); Dr. Dhanashri Mahajan, HOD, Department of Prasuti Tantra and Stri Rog, Shri Ayurved College, Nagpur; Dr. Vaishali Kuchewar, Dean, MGACH and RC, Salod (H), Wardha; and Dr. Bhagyashri Chaudhari, Department of Prasuti Tantra and Striroga, MGACH and RC, Salod (H), Wardha.

The introductory speech was delivered by respected Dean Dr. Vaishali Kuchewar. She gave a brief introduction on the importance of treatment modalities in Ayurveda for PCOS. Following it, the inaugural address by Organizing Secretary Dr. Bhagyashri Chaudhari focused on the preventive aspects of Ayurveda regarding the management of PCOS.

Beginning the session, the first lecture was delivered by honourable guest speaker Dr. Neema Acharya. She emphasized on modern diagnostic tools such as 2D and 3D USG, MRI, and pathological investigations, including TSH, hydroxyprogesteron, DHEA, etc., for the diagnosis of PCOS. The second lecture delivered by Dr. Manoj Gaikwad focused on the importance of Panchakarma Chikitsa like Matrabasti and Uttarbasti on PCOS. He highlighted important drugs like Klaynak Ghrita, Kanchanar Guggula, Arogyavardhini Vati, etc., with their excellent outcomes on the disorder. The third lecture by Dr. Dhanashri Mahajan focused on advance modalities in Ayurveda for treating PCOS. She mainly focused on the scope of Yogabhyas. In the concluding section, participants exchanged their queries via online interactions with the delegates.

In this webinar, there was a participation by a total of 115 delegates. Among them, 45 submitted their posters for a competition held in connection with this event of CAME. Out of them, 24 were PG students, 11 were UG students, and 10 were faculties. The valedictory session, proposed by Organizing Committee Member Dr. Trupti Thakre, concluded by announcing the winners of best poster award, which was followed by a vote of thanks. Dr. Nisha Agrawal (PG student of All India Instituent of Ayurveda, Delhi) won the first prize in PG category, Ms. Rucha Dhongadi and team (third-year UG students of BMACH and RC, Butibori, Nagpur) won the first prize in UG category, and Dr. Mujahid Khan (Assistant Professor, Department of RSBK, MGACH and RC) won the first prize in faculty category. The average pre-test score was 2.1, post-test score was 19.3, and learning gain was 86.2.

To sum up, this webinar was a good contribution in uplifting the knowledge of all participants with respect to an intense review of Samhitas with reference to PCOS symptomatology, traditional Ayurveda approaches, and modern tools to assess the success of treatment. Also, such webinars can be more helpful and convenient to attend from workplaces, are cost-effective to participants, and can be arranged with less manpower.
