MBBS or Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, to put elaborately, is counted as the most renowned as well as challenging bachelor degrees (as it has two degrees in the single medical space) in the domain. Being the most designated degree in the medical field, it’s certainly not a cakewalk for students to attain the degree and go through all that it requires to come out victorious. It takes a lot of effort on part of the students (teachers as well for that matter) to instal into medical students not just the necessary knowledge, skill and practical experience but also, most importantly, embedding into their minds and hearts the critical understanding of the fact that it will be human lives that they will be responsible for and make them realise the kind of burden it bestows on their shoulders. That said, it is undoubtedly a sound, respectable as well as duly rewarding job in every way for one to opt for, given a student’s passion and sincerity towards the program and the career eventually.
Educational Qualification Required-
Students having cleared their 10+2 with major subjects as Physics, Chemistry and Biology, securing a minimum of 50% marks in the PCB (if general category) or 40% (if reserved category) are eligible for giving the entrance examination to be able to make their way to the MBBS degree program.
The eligible candidates need to clear (NEET) the National Level Examination that is conducted by CBSE, i.e. NEET or AIIMS Entrance Exam. The short-listed candidates are then allotted seats in various medical colleges, according to the score and other factors into consideration.
MBBS, the undergraduate degree program in the field, used to be completed in about 5.5 years in total, comprising of 4.5 years of academic curriculum and 01 years of internship for practical experience. However, under the light of the recent announcement by the Government regarding the duration, the program will now be completed in a total of 7.5 years instead. This is owing to the addition of 2 more years to the course, an extra year for the internship coupled with a year of rural posting.
Career Options Available-
The medical students, throughout their tenure, are made completely aware of the entire anatomy of human and the surgery practices, inclusive of sub-fields such as human cytology, chemistry, human anatomy, medicine, drugs formulation, pharmaceutical chemistry & effect and the method of surgery.
As far as career opportunity goes, while the obvious choice is to get employed as a medical professional (having attained the right to carry the prefix ‘Dr’ with the name) in a private or Government-aided hospital or even establishing one’s private clinic, there are other options available as well. In case, one doesn’t want to start practice as a doctor, medical students today can go for choices such as public health, hospital administration, medical transcription or even medical publishing among others.
Monetary Benefits Expected-
Needless to say, being one of the most prestigious professions across the globe, it is certainly a financially high-rewarding career, with an increasing demand for good, promising lot of medicos in huge demand by both the Government as well as private hospitals. On an average, it generally starts with an annual salary of around 3 lakh rupees in case of Government sector or as much as 5 lakh rupees approx. when it comes to private sector, increasing manifold given the level of experience attained.
Scope in Future Analysed-
Stating the obvious, the scope of the MBBS degree program and career as a medical professional eventually certainly has a bright future where its scope is concerned, all across the globe. With increasing stress levels, pollution, deteriorating atmosphere and unhealthy lifestyles and then, people also becoming aware of the repercussions on their physical health due to all of this, is reason enough for a tremendous need and thereafter, professional respect for the talented and knowledgeable doctors. And of course, the life-saving profile of a doctor is an added advantage to its wide scope at present and in future, always.
