Dear Aspirant,

BDS will not be eligible for doing MSc in Genetics.

You should be either BSc or MBBS to do post graduate studies in Genetics form India or abroad.

Why did you feel to shift to Genetics from Dentistry? I think you should re-think on your decision and seriously think of what you want.

Doing an MDS in latest technology related to Dentistry will be more useful and paying for you.

Best wishes

Dear Aspirant,

That is just an example of 4 years bachelors degree course in India, that does not mean that BDS is eligible.

They have also listed B.Arch in that. How can B. Architecture study Genetics? Can you answer this question? Architecture is no where related to genetics.

Kindly verify with them through an email if BDS is eligible for Genetics. I do not feel that it is eligible.

Best wishes

Dear Shivani,

Thanks for writing to us! We are here to guide you and help you help yourself.

For MSc in genetic, minimum requirement is BSc (zoology,botany, chemistry, physiology, biotechnology, biochemistry, microbiology), BTech (Genetic Engineering), MBBS/BDS. You can certainly do MSc in genetics after BDS. However, remember, not all universities offer MSc in genetics to other than BSc students. It is always better to talk with respective University/department for eligibility criteria.

Admission procedure:
In India, usually admission in MSc is based on entrance test and interview. Candidate can obtain a maximum of 80 marks for exam and 20 marks for interview. The entrance test is carried out in objective model giving emphasis to Biology and Genetics.

Admission procedure for MSc in Genetics:
Each country has different admission procedure. For admission in UK, you need to clarify IELTS and for USA TOEFL and GRE. Admission procedure vary from University to University. Therefore, please vontact the respective University's administrative office for eligibility criteria and admission procedure.

I have few reflective questions for you to answer.
What made you think of doing MSc in genetics?
Have you reviewed other courses that you can do after BDS?

Career options after BDS (other than MDS):
Dental sciences in itself is a great career field and offers bright scope. You can specialize in areas like MSc in dental cosmetology, dental materials, geriatric dentistry implantology and many more within the field of dentistry.

If you are interested in research field then doing MSc in pharmacology, medical sociology, clinical research might be more rewarding than doing MSc.

If you are interested in management then MBA in management, hospital management etc. would be helpful.

If you are interested in public health then MPH or MBA in healthcare management would be very good courses.

In addition to these, BDS graduates can also get jobs with the defense services. To get jobs with them, the students are required to clarify the UPSC exams.

For an exciting career, students can join with the forensic department as well.

I would suggest you to mention your area of interest so that one can provide information regarding the same. Before take decision to change the field, give a thought to other career options after BDS.

Hope this is helpful and helped you clarify your doubts. If you still have doubts, feel free to write to me.

With Best Wishes for bright career,
