After taking his degree of licentiate in medicine and surgery, Hyams practised as a physician in Bombay, and in addition to a flourishing private practise was from 1889 in charge of the Bohara Sanatorium in that city. He was engaged in the plague hospital, opened in the sanatorium; and it is believed that he contracted the fatal disease while employed in this service.
