Why do people call it MD in Russia, Uk, USA and MBBS in India?

What is the difference?

which has more value and job opportunities?

if i study MD, then will i be able to practise in India ?


but the duration of MD is 7 years

but MBBS is only 5 1/2 years

why is that so?

    MBBS is an undergraduation in medicine (useful for just diagnosis of a disease)

    MD/MS is a post graduation(specialization) in a particular field

    (medicine, surgery, paediatrics, orthopedics, anesthesia, obstetrics, gynecology etc.)

    After MD/MS u r called as a specialist

    Yes you can practice in India..

    MD is the post graduation & mbbs is the under graduation .Nowadays so many people going to russia & China for medicine.,but after completing the course you can practise in Russia,China or Usa. If u want to practice in India, u should write another test,then only you can practice here. There is no other problems.

    well, in countries like russia they call graduation in medicine a MD(not specialist) which is equalant to MBBS of india MD is PG in medicine(a specialist).......both have same job russia or ukraine mbbs is cheap........

    if u get a MD from russia (which is equal to MBBS of india) then u'll have to clear a test conducted by medical council of india, only then u'll be able to continue practice in india........but mostly ppl prefer to go western countries than india........
