MBBS, the bachelor’s degree of Medicine as well as the bachelor’s degree of Surgery is a very popular and high-in-demand undergraduate level course for students who want to become a doctor. This course provides a student two joint degrees in just one single domain. MBBS is the most common degree for becoming a professional doctor. For becoming an allopathic doctor, MBBS is considered to be the only degree for becoming a professional doctor. MBBS is that degree which adds on the title of a “doctor” to a person’s name.

The total duration of MBBS is 5.5 years including 4.5 years of academic education and 1 year of the compulsory internship? The 4.5 years of academic education of MBBS are divided into a total of 9 semesters, each semester havinga duration of 6 months, where each semester is having an approximate of 120 days.The total duration of MBBS seems a horrid dream to many people as they believe it to be an extremely tough and torturing degree.

But in reality, the degree MBBS is not at all torturing. It only requires dedication, practice, hard work, concentration and theright presence of mind. Students who are highly passionate, sincere and dedicated towards the profession of a doctor will find MBBS an easy and interesting course. For MBBS, a student should be patient, tolerant and understanding. Students who are lazy and uninterested in becoming a doctor and who are only after the mere “title” of this profession should avoid pursuing MBBS as pursuing MBBS is not an easy job.
