Medical Studies

Is it MD or MBBS? What's the Difference?

In short, it is the same. Both terms refer to the same Medical Degree; the difference is merely how the region or university prefers to call it.

For example, in Great Britain and in India, the medical degree is preferred to be referred as MBBS (Bachelors of Medicine and Surgery) based on its Latin form Medicinae Baccalaureus, Baccalaureus Chirurgiae, while in other regions such as the US, they prefer to call it as MD (Medical Doctor).

MD Studies 'The Term'

MD studies refers to the degree which will give you the knowledge and license to become a professional physician. A medical doctor entitled to prescribe medicine, cure and treat patients for different injuries, deseases, etc.

When becoming a doctor, you’ll be under an old oath called the Hippocratic Oath in which you commit to cure and treat any patient needing medical attention and privacy towards a patient’s case.

Medical Doctors are one of the most prestigious and respected professionals and others will put trust and hope on your knowledge and experience.

Important facts

The MD or MBBS programme usually lasts 6 years. The degree is mostly divided into two main parts – The Pre-Clinical and the Clinical part.

Many students get scared with the fact that the degree lasts 6 years but if you think about it, the pre-clinical part would equal any other BA at any university and the clinical part would be the practical side.

Once graduated, you will be a certified doctor from the country you have achieved your degree. In Europe, within the European Union, a professional doctor holding an MD degree can move around to other countries members of the EU and work without any restrictions, however, it is advisable to double-check the licensing regulations of your country as it is highly likely that you will need to issue a license through what’s usually called residence or internship.
