One of the future prospects after completing an MBBS programme from one of the medical colleges in India, graduates, for many years, have chosen an MD or Doctor of Medicine course. MD, inevitably, is a postgraduate course, which, as per the Medical Council of India, is conducted for a duration of 3 years across different specialisations.
MD, or Doctor of Medicine, like various postgraduate courses, is a degree rather than a course that can be pursued. All aspirants who wish to pursue a postgraduate programme will be able to pursue an MD degree in one of the many specialisations offered in the MD colleges of India.
In India, MBBS graduates choose MD as a postgraduate degree, if they wish to specialise in the area that grabs their interest. MD is one of the two most popular postgraduate medical degrees pursued after completing one’s MBBS, with the other being MS.
