In a nutshell, MBBS is a pre-level course whereas MD is an advanced level post-graduate course. Only those candidates who are MBBS degree holders can opt to choose from MD and MS. Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery is the full form of MBBS and it is a course that medical aspirants pursue after completion of their 10+2 and only if they qualify medical colleges' entrance examinations.
MD course can be pursued by candidates after completing their MBBS degree. In this post graduate course aspirants can opt for any specialization that they wish to study and understand in depth. Some of these are Anesthesiology, Psychiatry, Radiotherapy, Pediatrics, Nuclear Medicine and Ophthalmology.
MBBS degree in colleges is taught for a duration of 50 months, this includes mandatory one year rotational internship. However, MD specialization is taught for a duration of 3 years. Institutes such as AIIMS, PGIMER, and JIPMER do not accept NEET PG scores and conduct their own examinations for entrance.
MD and MS (Master of Surgery) have things in common, they are as mentioned below
Aspirants who opt for MS specialization will become surgeons and those who opt for MD will become physician
The MD course fee can vary widely depending on the type of institute - private or public. Also, within these two groups as well the fee may vary from one institute to another; the variation is more pronounced in private colleges than in public colleges, as could be expected.
Speaking of fee charged by public colleges, the premier medical institute in the country, AIIMS Delhi and the other AIIMS charge an annual tuition fee of only Rs. 702. Other components of fee structure include pot money, electricity, Gymkhana Fee, and caution money. The total annual fee after adding all the components is less than Rs. 2000. Also, AIIMS doesn’t charge any hostel fees from its students. While some of the other government medical colleges may charge a bit higher, still it is far less than what is charged by private institutes.
For example, CMC Vellore, which is a private institute, charges Rs. 1200 an annual tuition fee, Rs. 15,000 as one time establishment fee, and Rs. 1,20,000 as university fee. The total annual fee comes out to be around Rs. 1,42,000. This fee is probably on the lower side for a private institute, as some institutes charge much higher.
Given the disparity in fee structure between government and private colleges, it is no surprise than most students would ideally like to take admission into a government institute. But the consequence of this is that the competition for a government seat is higher, and the candidate would need a good rank, whatever the exam may be - NEET PG, AIIMS PG, or JIPMER PG.
Refer the table below to check the fee structure of some of the popular government as well as private medical colleges.
