There are many surgery courses you can choose after MBBS. First of all, you should remember that you should have a keen interest in doing surgeries and that all surgeons are trained and not born. But, some of the traits which are handy to be an ideal surgeon include professionalism, intelligence, conscientiousness and courage, as well as creativity and perseverance.

Which surgery course you would choose after MBBS depends on which the kind of Surgeon you want to be and what rank do you get in the Medical PG entrance examination.

First you must pass the difficult PG entrance exams prior to gaining access to the PG seat concerned with surgery.

Surgery offers a myriad of specialties; it can be difficult to determine which is best for you. If you’re looking to understand an accurate picture, you should first consider what you would like to pursue in the future.

There are some that are end specialties such as MS/DNB Orthopedics, MS/DNB Ophthal, MS/DNB Obs-Gyn, MS/DNB ENT. Another one is General Surgery which after completion you can decide to continue to work in the field of General Surgery. Or you could choose to pursue your studies further to become a superspecialist for example, Neurosurgeon, Cardiac Surgeon, Urosurgeon, GI Surgeon or Oncosurgeon.

The following Master’s programs are three-year residency programs / surgery courses in India which will help you become a surgeon in the specialty of your choice.
