Like most of the courses available in India, the medical field is also wide. It not only consists of treating patients but more than that. Students having MBBS as their graduation, have so many options to continue after MBBS. They have dynamic careers in front of them.

These are the few options - 

MD/MS/Diploma:

This is the path, which s mostly taken by the students after their completion of MBBS. Many specialization areas are there which are offered in India, for the post graduation level.  Some of the specialties are general surgery, gynecology, internal medicines etc. for MD or MS there is an entrance exam to be given by the students AIPGMEE. This exam is held in December every year. Being a specialist adds up for your job opportunities in various hospitals. Hospitals prefer to appoint specialist for their service. Both the courses are of 3 years.

 

Diploma of National Board(DNB)

This is basically a post graduation course to become a specialist in a particular field.  They are mostly provided by the private institutes in India. They are courses offered by the National Board of Examinations. But they rate at which the students pass these exams are really low as compared to the MD or MS. They are also expensive to continue & amount of time consumed s also more.

 

 Clinical Research:

There are various research institutes present in India, providing research opportunities for students who graduated in MBBS.  There is a huge demand these days for researchers in India. Many institutes like AIIMS, PGI, NIMHANS, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai (TIFR) offer a Ph.D. degree.

Held in June every year, this exam is conducted by UPSC. For doctors, there is a written test. After that, they have to go for an interview. Based on their performance they get selected. They get posted in various government departments. The pay scale is also good as compared to private sector.

 

Ph.D. in India:  

Seats for Ph.D. are very limited in institutes in India. Students or the candidates can go abroad to do Ph.D. IISC, IISER etc are some research institutes available for the students after completing their MBBS. Well, this is a research opportunity, so students from different backgrounds apply for such positions. Students have to go through an interview. This kind of further studies takes a long time. They get paid yes, but it’s a slow procedure.

 

Masters in India:  

There is Indian Institute of Public Health, which provides 2-year programmes for Masters in Public Health. Today this course is gaining popularity. Some Institutes also provides Masters in emergency medicines. They take students on the basis of marks obtained in undergraduate courses. NGOs sector has job opportunities for this course.
