Which one to go for after MBBS-MD or MS

As a Doctor, there will be lot of confusion for you regarding which course you need to opt for MS or MD? MS is a postgraduate degree in general surgery while the MD is the postgraduate degree in General medicine. Both the degrees can be pursued after MBBS. The expert says that MS is for some fields where more of surgical expertise and the skills are required. MD is non surgical but there are some branches where surgery can be part of MD. There are various branches where a MBBS graduate can pursue MS or MD. MD after MBBS and MS after MBBS has lot of scope.The decision should be taken on the individual choice. Since the competition is growing after MD or MS once can join in the medical college as the teaching faculty, they can even start their own practice, can even apply for the job in both the government health sector and the private hospitals.

The future Prospects of the MS and MD

A Physician cannot be a surgeon, the surgeon can work in place of a physician with more study of medicine. The surgeon can earn a lot more money that a physician, if he or she is good and skilled. Both the fields have good future prospects. Some are interested in doing the surgeries and some without doing it.

But theoretically the Person who has done MD can also do MS. But practicality no one does it.
