A Doctor of Medicine, or M.D., is the primary path to take in post-secondary education for medical students seeking a professional career. Combining academic courses with a practical curriculum in a clinical setting, such a program is intended to lay the foundation for medical practitioners.

What is an M.D. in Medical Studies? This degree is awarded following the completion of a six-year curriculum of lectures and practical courses on medical practices. Early years in the program concern fundamental sciences of medicine, then later courses build upon this with preclinical and clinical subjects on investigation, diagnosis and treatment, as well as courses concerning legal and organizational aspects of the industry. The program typically culminates in practical training in various fields, from family medicine to surgery, and may include some student-chosen specialties.

Taking an M.D. in Medical Studies provides both a vocational and general skill base for students working towards a medical profession. Along with a developed understanding of clinical procedures and standards and the patient-physician relationship, students may also build upon their problem-solving skills and ethical perspectives.

Depending on the specific structure of the program and its curriculum as well as the school in question, taking an M.D. in Medical Studies can vary in registration and tuition fees. Before applying, students should consult with the program’s website or offices for more information.

With an M.D. in Medical Studies, students can prepare themselves for a career as a general or specialist physician, depending on the particular discipline chosen in their courses and the residency period following graduation. Generalist professions can include family medicine physicians, pediatricians or geriatricians, and primary or emergency care physicians. These in turn can overlap with physiological specialties, for example, cardiologists or dermatologists; or specialists in particular conditions or clinical environments, for instance sports medicine specialists.

An M.D. in Medical Studies can be taken at medical schools worldwide; the emphasis on practical work means programs are typically campus-based only, but there may be online options for some courses. To begin, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
