Careers In Medicine Part-2

  • Study Routes:
  • An entrance exam after science in 10+2 is necessary to get admission in one of the medical colleges listed below. Followed by a four and a half year MBBS program which makes you a general practitioner. Next is a one-year internship.
  • For an MD or an MS i.e. specialization there is another 2-year program, which can be taken up only after qualifying an exam. More than 70% of all MBBS graduates try for postgraduate qualifications, rather than going in for a job or practice. Choice can be any one of the large number of subjects studied during MBBS course– Surgery, Medicine, Microbiology, Dermatology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Psychiatry, Paediatrics, Otolaryngology, Biochemistry, Radiology, Ophthalmology, Pathology, Orthopaedic Surgery, Physiology, Anatomy and Preventive Medicine.
  • Finally there is super-specialisation as Neurosurgeon, Paediatric surgeon, Cardiologist, Nephrologist, Gastroenterologist, Cardiothoracic surgeon, Genito-urinary surgeon, and Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon.
