A career in the medical field is a very highly demanded and popular career. Many students in their childhood often dream of becoming a doctor. But with the growing years, students often leave their ambition of becoming a doctor due to lack of knowledge about that profession and also due to fear of the competition which one has to face for becoming a doctor.

Here, in this article, we will guide you about the profession of a doctor and the course structure of the most common degree for becoming a doctor, i.e., MBBS.

About the profession of a doctor

For becoming a doctor, a person can choose to specialize in different fields like Acupuncture, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Internal Medicine, Dental Care, Ophthalmology, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Neurology, Pathology, Plastic Surgery, Psychiatry, Radiology, Orthopedics, Nurse Midwifery etc.

Becoming a doctor is a very promising career as it can easily fulfill one's dreams of living a reputable, rich, luxurious and high-standard life. By becoming a doctor, a person gets a chance to raise his/her living standard. But for becoming a successful doctor, a person must be hard working, patient and tolerant. A doctor needs to overcome all his/her fears. Moreover, a doctor is required to learn to prioritize his/her patients over anyone else in the world.

About MBBS

MBBS is the Bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery. It is that degree which is having two bachelor’s degrees, i.e., Bachelor of Medicine as well as Bachelor of Surgery. It is a very well-known and highly demanded course of all times. It is the most common degree for those who are willing to pursue a degree course for becoming a professional doctor. MBBS is such a degree which adds on the title of a “doctor” to a person’s name.

 

 

It is an undergraduate level course whose duration is 5.5 years. People often fear the 5.5 years of MBBS as they consider it no less than a torture. It is necessary to clear the reality that 5.5 years of MBBS include nothing like a torture. They are just such years which require a lot of dedication, hard work, practice, proper concentration and the correct presence of mind. Anyone who is sincere, passionate and dedicated to his/her work and who is hardworking as well as who is having qualities like, patience, tolerance, understanding etc. will find no difficulty in pursuing MBBS. Only those who are lazy and who are having no passion towards the profession of a doctor and who are pursuing MBBS just for the sake of a mere “title” will find the course extremely tough for them.

Course Structure of MBBS

For being eligible for MBBS, a person must have scored at least 60% marks (or whichever is specified by the college/university) in his/her class 12th. Moreover, he/she must have studied and passed in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology in class 12th.
