Hello Devika, 

To pursue the medical profession, a student needs to pursue PCB in 12th. After that the student needs to clear the medical entrance exam like NEET, AIPMT etc. Please note if you are interested in dentistry and veternary doctor then you have to fill a seperate form than a regular entrance exam form.

Once you secure admission, the MBBS course is 5 1/2 years course whereby 6 months is internship in which rural internship is must. Here you do not specialise in any field. Hence you could practice as a general physician once you pass MBBS. Similiar is BDS course. Only that after you clear BDS you could practicee as a dentist, without opting for a masters degree.

Incase you are interested in pursuing an MS or  MD, whereby you could specialise in any field of your choice, then you would have to again appear for a entrance exam. This course is 4 1/2 years, including internship. There are many specializations available right from cardiac, neurology, peadiatrics, gastro, endocrinilogy, psychiatrist, gynaceology etc.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck...
