  • MD Degree is Post-Graduation Degree in Medical field. Students are admitted in MD and MS (which stands for Master in Surgery) after completion of MBBS. On the other hand, DM degree is given for super-specialty courses. This is a higher level degree than MD or MS.

  • Hi,
    MBBS, MD, MS, DM, etc are various different courses in the field of medicine or doctor.

    After 12th, the interested candidates go for MBBS as initial phase. MBBS is a general course for becoming a doctor. But may students do not go for further specializations and become general doctors after their completion of MBBS degree.
    Where as some students wants specialization and register themselves for MD (Doctor of Medicine) or MS (Master in Surgery). These are equivalent to post graduation courses and gives specialization benefit to the candidates.

    After MD/MS, some students wants to study further in the same field and pursue DM which is equivalent to Doctorate course of medical line.

    There are many government as well private Medical colleges of Indiawhich are offering these courses at reasonable fee structure.
    Out standing candidate even can have benefit of scholarship programs running of many government organizations.
