About Medical:

At entry-level medical education programs are tertiary-level courses undertaken at a medical school. Depending on jurisdiction and university, these may be either undergraduate-entry (most of Europe, Asia, south America and oceania), or graduate-entry programs. Some jurisdictions and universities provide both undergraduate entry programs and graduate entry programs .

In general, initial training is taken at medical school. Traditionally initial medical education is divided between preclinical and clinical studies. The former consists of the basic sciences such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, pathology. The latter consists of teaching in the various areas of clinical medicine such as internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, general practice and surgery. However, medical programs are using systems-based curricula in which learning is integrated, and several institutions do this. In the United States, until quite recently, the requirements for the M.D. degree did not include even one course in human nutrition. Today, this omission has been rectified, at least to the extent that one such course is required.

There has been a proliferation of programmes that combine medical training with research (M.D./Ph.D.) or management programmes (M.D./ MBA), although this has been criticised because extended interruption to clinical study has been shown to have a detrimental effect on ultimate clinical knowledge

There are various medical degrees available to secondary school graduates in India, ranging from a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), to a Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine, to a Dental Diploma, and so on. Here you will find many possible undergraduate medical degree programs, the length of each program, the average cost, and each program’s requirements. 

In India, medical education and its accreditation is monitored and controlled by the Medical Council of India (MCI). This is an organization that makes sure that all medical schools - the institutions that provide medical education to students in India - are following the same rules and guidelines, are maintaining the same admission and completion requirements, and are providing the same standard of quality to its students. 

Apart from the field of Medicine, the other medical apex bodies in India in the fields of dentistry and pharmacy are the Dental Council of India (DCI) and the Pharmacy Council of India (PCI).
