Almost 17-18 Lakh Candidates registered and appeared for the NEET Exam that was conducted on 17 July 2022. It’s a reflection of the fact that the medical field continues to be one of the most sought-after fields in India, if not the most sought-after. This makes the Medical Courses all the more critical.
Out of all the Medical Courses, 4 main courses at the Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels are most useful for the candidates. These train the candidates in all the basic knowledge about various medical disciplines, medical ethics, laws, and therapeutics. However, students can only get a good idea about what each course has to offer once and if information about them is available in detail.
These are the 4 main courses that are not just the most sought-after courses by medical aspirants but are also the most useful in the curriculum and career prospects.
IIt won’t be wrong to say that the primary medical degree course in India would be the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery a.k.a MBBS. This is mainly a 5-6 year undergraduate (UG) course that is mainly followed in those countries that have by and large followed the British mode of education. There is a lot to know about this course, which is considered the paramount UG medical course in India.
All in all the MBBS course is a starting course for those who seek to become efficient medical professionals in the future. Students tend to gain basic knowledge and competencies during this course. It gives them an overall idea about the various medical disciplines and in turn, helps them to choose a specialization in the future.
Unlike MBBS, this isn’t an all-encompassing course but instead, focuses on one discipline i.e. Dentistry. This is evident from its name Bachelor of Dental Surgery. This is a 4-year undergraduate (UG) course that mainly trains students in understanding the facets of dental problems, surgery, and denture. There are a lot of other things that this course offers both, educationally, and practically.
All in all, BDS focuses on ensuring that students taking this course are well-versed in the facets of Oral Medicine and Dental Surgery so that they become efficient dental medical practitioners in the future.
One of the most common options for medical students pursuing their master’s is the Doctor of Medicine a.k.a MD course. The main characteristic of this course is the detailed study of medicine as a whole. This 2-year course warrants a deeper study of the understanding, diagnosing, treating, and preventing of diseases.
