Hello


Thank you for choosing Mera career guide and writing to us. I can understand your issues that you are going through now but i am a little surprised that how you did not think of these issues before taking up medicine? You may have known that you will be deemed to perform operation, do anatomical dissection when you become a Doctor right? Its already a year you have been doing MBBS and if you change course now, you may lose out a year. Are you okay for this? It isn't a bad thing or a sin to miss out on a year as there are students who experience this phase but it is necessary to ask you if you will be happy to pursue this change of course.



Changing from MBBS to Biotechnology shouldn't haunt you later, or you should not feel bad to have missed out the course. This is why I highly support Ms Gomathi's counselling here. Can you get adjusted to studying anatomy class alone? If you can manage to get through this class, then you can get your MBBS degree. Like wise you can choose Doctor professions where performing surgery is not necessary. Yes you can choose to be a Dermatologist, Paediatrics, emergency medicine, anaesthesia, endocrinology, general internal medicine and family practice. But still your work life will be only at a hospital and ask yourself if you are prepared to work in such an atmosphere all your life.


If you are very sure you cannot at all work in a hospital if you hate it so much, then please dont have second thoughts and feel free to change to Biotechnology. But also be warned that certain biotechnology professions may require to work in hospitals and you should again be clear to skip such professions. If you are confident that you dont want to work in a hospital, and not perform anatomy dissection then just jump into Biotechnology course. As said please complete your MBBS first year as some colleges may consider you to directly admit you in second year of BTech degree although only private universities does it. I also advice you to appear for IIT JEE as I belive you are smart enough to crack this exam and get a high percentage. With a high score in IIT JEE, you can get into any of the IIT's for a BTech Biotechnology. If you pass out from IIT, your life will be more stable with the brand you will have on your resume. So try giving a shot for this. Instead of joining into a private college, an IIT name will offer you better stand. Hope this helps. My best wishes to you.

Dear aspirant



Thank you for approaching counsellors at CareerGuide.com. I totally understand your concern for medicine subject. Were you not aware before choosing medicine that you will be experiencing all this clinical atmosphere while studying MBBS? As a counsellor i have met with lots of students who come to me in first year or second year MBBS saying they cannot get adjusted with the hospital life or afraid of doing surgeries, and some are even afraid to see blood. It is quite natural for students to come with such experiences but on the long run you should think about how are you going to work as a doctor in future? As being a docctor you can with no other choice only work at hospitals. There is no exception for this. But may be you can claim exemption for the anatomy subjects at least with regards to a career in future. You have already started MBBS and you are in your first year, can you some how get adjusted to classes during the anatomy subject at least? A doctor's profession is various and it is not a work of 100% anatomy dissection. If you could some how adjust to studying during the anatomy classes then in future you can neglect work that involves operation or anatomy dissection. For example You can choose to be a specialist for skin, a dermatologist? As a dermatologist you dont have to perform surgeries but still a derma doctor has various things to deal with a patient right? So think about this route.

If you can adjust reading to anatomy classes and somehow finish your MBBS with your will power then choose your profession like dermatologist where you can be safe from doing surgeries. If you totally find uncomfortable then you can take Biotechnology course itself as you have mentioned. But for that i advice you to complete first year of MBBS as this will give you a chance to study BTech Biotechnology directly from second year at some private colleges. Some colleges will give you exemption to start studying from year one. So the best advice is complete this year at MBBS and then consult with your parents and take a wise decision accordingly. My sincere advice to you, choose only the subject and profession you love to do. Dont think MBBS is great than Biotech. You can become a great person in any profession if you can truly invest your interest and potential. My best wishes to you.
