hey everyone. what should i do MBBS or BDS???????????
MBBS allows you to keep your options open. You can choose any field in medicine or surgery, while BDS will limit your options.
BDS is relatively easier and can be completed in a shorter span, and its easier to get admission into. In the end it will be your choice. Consider the pros and cons of both options.
MBBS is better !!
can u guys tell me the pros and cons of both of these fields?????
I just gave you some of them. Search on google, that is the best thing to do because we may not give you the best opinion. Look at both MBBS and BDS. You will get a good enough idea. We don't have alot of guys on XPF that are either doing MBBS or BDS so it will be difficult to make a decision through the opinions of us. Just hope someone from medical school comments here.
Try asking princesszahra !!
well.....as far as the relative difficulties are concerned MBBS is way more difficult than BDS....BDS deals with stuff like dentistry...which i dont think is exciting.but in MBBS U get all sort of exciting subjects such as neurology,biochemistry ,medicine,microbiology,forensic medicine.....and it really is interesting and tough.....so MBBS is a better option to choose...though the merit for BDS is a bit lower and it ll be easy to get admission in BDS
thanks for ur suggestions
Even i can't choose btw the two
But i'll tell you what i found out from my research
MBBS is tougher,takes longer,a simple mbbs graduate has no value at all and you hardly earn anything,harder to get admissions into
But If you do specialisation you really are something then
Bds on the other hand is shorter,easier to get admission into,easier,saves one year,as soon as you graduate you can practice dentistry and start gaining experience
It's totally upto you i choose BDs.Take mbbs if you can handle the competition and the studies
Dentistry is the one of the highest paid job around the world. Once you Specializes in the field you earn like $153,570 yearly (according to CNBC highest paid jobs).
u'll get nuts studying head n neck in 1st yr anatomy BDS!
MBBS students do it in the second yr!
Go for what u want. If you are too ambitious, go for MBBS, For that u must be ready to dedicate ur whole life to the emergency calls. U need to stuy 5 years and 1year of house job and then specialisation etc to mak a name or to earn well.
Bds is comparatively easy. With no emergency,no death cases, u can start ur own clinic right after graduation. Study less and focused (mouth only.)
MBBS is theoretically a more quality course.
But the choice depends on u. Y not apply to both ? Get rejected from one ? Dead end ? Well yea, then you'll be left with one choice.
But my bet, MBBS at a quality place.
But do it if it's your passion, and remember MBBS or BDS it's just a means towards an end and not an end in themselves.
And whatever you decide, do follow up with girl up here "princess zahra" she's a genius on this.
As far as nature of job and pay is concerned be ready to expect a harsh treatment, any top employer in the world looks for your performance in your course not just what u did i.e MBBS/BDS. And your work experience.
When taking jobs (at a quality place) even the best in the land can fail to do well simply because they are theoretically very well trained but with little hands on experience whereas the people interviewing you are experts with years and years of experience. This kind of approach will help you out later when taking jobs, and especially if u decide to take a job out of country.
And don't trust anyone who says 'study less' there is no thing as 'study less' in all major fields especially engineering/medicine/corporate economics.
As I said always hit up princess zahra for any questions since she's in her 2nd year of MBBS.
Both the fields are equally good. I think, study less was meant compared to Mbbs, which is true.
But this is just what and how you see urself in the near future. So no one here can tell you which one is better exactly. You are told about the nature of jobs of both the field, now choose for yourself!
And by the way it was 'aqsasaleem' who gave her opinion regarding studying less.
Y r u debating over it anyways
You should also bear in mind that MBBS has more 'variety' of jobs. So if you're really academically inclined than it's better taking a bit more pain and do something that offers you a broader spectrum of choices.
That's what I meant earlier, if 'studying less' is going to be the criteria on which u base ur decision (it isn't much of a difference, and there are areas where u have to study more too, see the post of princess zahra above, she made a more objective post rather than just being opinionated'
So, by no means I support anyone to provide misleading advice. Choose absolutely in terms of what you want to be, not that one thing has a bit less studying than the other.
And by the way, the brightest people get into MBBS, and the lower counterpart into BDS. So, the brightest cohort isn't a fool.
Is it anywhere written not to reply for someone? I don't think so.
Oh come on! Don't be misguiding now. Yes the merit of Bds is lower than mbbs, but that does not mean you are studying crap. coming to jobs/future prospects, it is as good as mbbs. Rather, better. And let me add one thing for you ,
Mbbs people nowadays go for bds, not because of any other reason, but because they know how handy it is.
And let it be a choice of your interest, not a choice of wich one is better etc. The pros and cons of both are already mentioned above.
Anyways, it's useless to debate over this because both are needed in pakistan. So see into it what you actually want for you.
I nowhere mention that BDS is crap. I correcting wat u said.
It was u who was being misguided. And by the way i dnt think u want to see things other than mbbs/bds here !
Ur emphasis on how much studying can get anyone making the wrong decision. Thats what I corrected, career decisions shud ONLY be on what u want to do, where, and how.
For instance there are visa regulations, immigration rules, work permit rules that are sometimes more favoured to those who have done MBBS and FCPS. Everything needs to be looked.
With everyone becoming a doctor u already knw how low the starting salary is in Pakistan. Most of the people will look into practising elsewhere too. Places like Dubai.
And I know u havent yet had the exposure of what employers in the developed world look for.
