Hello Rohit,


The only and the top most advantage of obtaining a medical degree is that you qualify as a Doctor.


Whereby you can start practising as a general physician, either by opening a clinic of your own or associate with any hospital or polyclinics.


In terms of higher studies, you can surely opt for either MD or MS can specialise in any one branch of super speciality offered right from gynaceology to cardiology to endocrinologist to radiologist to psychiatrist etc.

Or you could opt for clinical research, Pharmacy, alternate medicines, MBA in Hospital management etc.


Hope this helps you.


Wish you good luck...
