How to Become a Doctor - Steps to Becoming a Doctor in India Click on this link to watch a videochat with a final year MBBS Student studying medicine in India talk about how to become a doctor. Watch to find out about entrance exams, the structure of the program, subject choices at high school Deevya decided to become a doctor in grade 3. He now studies in final year at Grant Medical College. He was definite about doing his medicine in India because of the time advantage, but he thinks he made a mistake by choosing IGCSE over ICSE in Grade 8. Later on after Grade 10 he moved back to the Indian system at which point he had a challenge in converting his grades back to the Indian system. Plus the ICSE 10th board results come out much earlier than the IGCSE results which also causes some problem. Ideally, he thinks if you want to study medicine in India, a student should study all through in the Indian board i.e. ICSE or CBSE. The MBBS program after 12th grade is for 5.5 years. Which includes a compulsory internship of 12 months. In comparison when you study in the US the pre-med and then med program makes it an 8 to 8.5 year program as against the 5.5 years taken in India. He recommends that studying in India makes sense if you’re either undecided or planning to practice in India. There is a subject called community medicine which takes up cases that are endemic to India, very specific which helps you a lot since you gain expertise in Indian specific diseases. You would not get that experience abroad given the communicable diseases in India and the lower affluence. Even though this is a five and a half year program, by name of the program this is a three year program. The first year is a one year course where you learn structures, processes in the body and dissections etc. Second year is a year and a half where you learn what causes diseases, pathologies and drugs. The third year is over 2 years where the first year is called third minor and the second year is called final year. The final year is the most hectic. The Internships is compulsorily after the final year exams. The idea behind the internships is that they have provided education to you at a much lower cost than a private institution would have, so to get something back from you they make you intern for a year at a very low cost. This includes a rural internship for a month and a half. There is a lot of practical training like dissections etc. in the first year. From the second year onwards, you can attend the wards, the medicine and surgery departments where you largely have an observing role. From the third year onwards you are posted to the wards. The difference between the Indian system and the rest of the world is that we don’t really have dummies so as soon as you start final year you get a bed patient just like you are a doctor. You do a mock evaluation before the doctor comes in. You get thrown into it to learn from a live patient. India does have large lecture classes, which are little more imposed learning compared to the discussion forum. But barring lectures when you need to do practical training, lab work, dissections, tutorials etc. you get broken down into groups of 10 or 20. Medical Entrance exams – there are two entrance exams to get into a medical college – one is the Maharashtra CET, and the other is an all India exam. CET is given at the end of your 12th. You require coaching classes from grade 11th. These are picked according to your location. Pick classes which are specific for the medical entrance exams. Should have lived in Maharashtra for a certain number of years and match the criteria to take the Maharashtra CET. The all India exam can be taken by anyone, and this is applicable to medical colleges of all states and you can move to any state. The exam comprises Physics, Chemistry and Biology at a major level. It is important because the format of the Common Entrance test is that the Physics and Chemistry is for 50 marks each. These are common for all, those wanting to pursue Engineering take a Math paper for 100 marks and those wanting to pursue medicine take a Biology paper for 100 marks. You submit a sheet as per preference, the scores are used by medical colleges, dentistry colleges and pharmacy colleges. Some private colleges have their own entrance exams but the advantage with government hospitals is that you get to see a lot of patients and many cadavers. So the experience at government hospitals is better. However, at the private hospitals will offer you a better teaching experience. However, most top ranked students would prefer government hospitals since your clinical experience cannot be substituted.
