The MBBS degree is highly sought after in the realm of professional education. Even more prestigious is to pursue a post graduate degree in medical science. So, should you be keen on obtaining a PG degree (MD or MS or MDS) in medicine or surgery, there is good news for you.
The Medical Council of India has allowed medical colleges to add an equal number of PG (MD/MS/MDS) seats by surrendering the recognized diploma seats in corresponding courses. This has been announced on 12.07.2018 after receiving applications for increasing the PG degree seats.
MS is a postgraduate degree in General Surgery while MD is for General Medicine. A student completing MS becomes a surgeon while a student with an MD degree becomes a general physician. The career prospects in both the fields are equally good and rewarding.
Admission for the MD/MS/MDS PG course is open for medical colleges in Nepal.
