Medical Colleges in
From Wikipedia, the
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). 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
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.
