Prospective students for an undergraduate course leading towards a Bachelor of
Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree must have completed a HSC (10+2,
or high school) with the Science stream, including the subjects Biology,
Chemistry and Physics with at least 50% marks.
An MBBS degree with registration by the Medical Council of India is the basic
requirement for all graduate courses in the field of medicine and surgery. In
India, these courses are often referred to as Post-graduate courses as the MBBS
confers "graduate" status. In India, students substitute the four year degree
customary in the US, (aka the Bachelors degree) with two intensive years of high
school coursework (grades 11-12) and immediately start at medical school. High
school graduates in India are usually better prepared in their skills in science
than their counterparts in the US (however, in the US, after high school nearly
all American students receive 4 additional years of science and non-science
education at a University to receive a Bachelor's degree), and their education
in India is generally very focused or technical in nature rather than the broad
liberal model seen in the US.
A Medical College offers the basic undergraduate course MBBS. In fact only
institutions offering MBBS course in its curriculum are referred to as a Medical
Colleges. In Addition, the college may teach Post Graduate as well as
The MBBS course starts with the basic pre-clinical subjects such as
biochemistry, physiology, anatomy, microbiology, pathology and pharmacology. The
students simultaneously obtain hands-on training in the wards and out-patient
departments, where they interact with real patients. The curriculum aims to
inculcate good habits of history taking and examination. The student is taught
to arrive at a differential diagnosis and to determine what investigations will
be useful in a particular case.
The duration of the MBBS is five and half years, consisting of 4½ years of
didactic lectures and clinical clerkship or rotation and One year of hands-on
work as an intern or house surgeon.
