Medical Colleges in Pune , Maharashtra

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, or in Latin Medicinę Baccalaureus et Baccalaureus Chirurgię (abbreviated MB BChir, MB BCh, MB ChB, BM BS, MB BS etc.), are the two degrees awarded after a course of study in medicine and surgery at a university in the United Kingdom and other places following its usage, such as medical schools in Australia, Egypt, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore,Myanmar, New Zealand, Jamaica, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Sudan and India. The naming suggests that they are two separate degrees; however in practice they are usually treated as one. (At Oxford and Cambridge it is/was possible to be awarded the two degrees on different dates.)
Those holding the degree(s) and practicing medicine are still commonly referred to as "Doctor" and use the prefix "Dr".
The degrees are often used as the Commonwealth equivalent of what is known elsewhere as the degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD).[citation needed] In countries that award bachelors' degrees in medicine, however, the MD refers to a Higher Doctorate, and is reserved for medical practitioners who do research and submit a thesis in the field of medicine.


All medical schools in India award the MBBS degree under the Medical Council of India and State Medical councils' regulations. An MBBS is an undergraduate degree, usually lasting 5½ years or more. It includes one year of a compulsory rotating internship. Completion of an MBBS degree is required in order to apply for, and join, a specialised program offering the MD / MS degree. Subsequently further specialisation can lead to DM or MCh degrees.

There used also to be Licentiate qualifications in Medicine and Surgery (LMS) in India, awarded after a shorter course, originally at a "medical school" rather than a "medical college."

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Bombay awarded a Licentiate at LMS level, a Membership (MCPS) at MB BS level and a Fellowship (FCPS) at MD level. The State Medical Faculty of West Bengal (previously of Bengal) also gave Licentiates and Memberships.
