Beyond MBBS: Here Are Some Ideas from Texila American University for Medical Graduates
BENGALURU, India, Nov. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Texila American University – an institution that has trained 1500+ doctor – offers post-graduate degree in medicine with added advantages, especially when it is well-known that medical education is strictly not over on completion of MBBS.
The profusion of super-speciality hospitals, availability of hi-tech treatment and ready-to-pay patients have given birth to a class of doctors who are specialists. This trend has kept young medical graduates of India on their toes. As physicians in training, they set their sights on acquiring a post-graduate degree in medicine, even if this means a second phase of gruelling preparation for entrance exams.
Medical aspirants are required to sit the National Board of Examinations’ (NBE) National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Postgraduate (NEET-PG) for admission to mostly Master of Surgery (MS) and Doctor of Medicine (MD) seats in government, private, deemed/central universities. A well-known fact is admission to medical colleges in India is tough due to limited number of seats and huge expenses. On an average, close to 1.5 Lakh (as on 2021) medical graduates take the NEET exam for PG but there are only about 26,000 (Including MD, MS & DNB) seats available in India.
MS Vs MD
Taking up MD or MS is a personal choice, where aspirants more inclined towards diagnosis and treatment prefer MD and those who enjoy clinical challenges, choose MS. It is widely believed that MD and MS are equally appealing as a career in India in terms of prestige and prospects.
