MBBS (5 years) course
Stanley Medical College - Chennai
MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) is the title of basic (allopathic) medical degree awarded in India. Applying to the MBBS program is the first step to become a physician, and on successful completion of 4.5 years of coursework (with clinical rotations) and one year of internship, one receives the MBBS degree. This degree allows the holder to register as a licensed medical practitioner with various state medical councils in India and practice medicine throughout India. It also allows one to apply for residency programs for specialty training both in India and abroad.
Stanley Medical College is often the short name for Government Stanley Medical College and Government Stanley Hospital, one of the premier medical colleges and teaching hospitals in India. Stanley Medical College is ranked among the top medical colleges in the state of Tamil Nadu. Currently, admissions to the MBBS program are limited to citizens of India, since medical education is highly subsidised by the government.
There are two ways of applying to the MBBS program. Applicants resident in Tamil Nadu state apply through the Tamil Nadu Professional Courses Entrance Examination (TNPCEE), held every year between March to May. Applicants from outside Tamil Nadu (out-of-state candidates) apply through the All India Premedical/Predental (AIPMPD) Test conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Application in April or May every year. In-state candidates are also eligible to join SMC through the AIPMPD exam, in addition to the TNPCEE. SMC admits about 150 to 160 students every year to the MBBS program. 85% of these seats are filled through the TNPCEE exam, and 15% through the AIPMPD exam.
