if you just want to know the practical aspect, there are lot of good certificate courses available. I will list 3 such things. These courses are not MCI recognized, but u get a degree and u can handle any case after taking it.Further if you take up PLAB, these courses will help you get a job in UK as most courses are approved by british universities. I know it for a fact because my friends have done it and have gone abroad.
a) Diploma in Emergency Medicine/ Diploma in family medicine :
These are 6 month courses offered by the Appollo group of hospitals. For more details log on to Medvarsity/vmu1.2/dmr/dmrdata/courses/accident . Well they give you a degree and confidence to handle any emergencies. I know this because some of my friends have done it and are happy. Further you need to study for the 1st 4 months at home and then work for the next 2 months in their hospital.
b) PG in bioinformatics:
For more details visit Bioinformaticscentre/page/academic_program/bio_prospectus
c) Ramchandra university offers a diploma in family medicine too .
You can get more details at www.medindia.com
Well as I told earlier these are not MCI recognized, but they give you a chance to work in a good hospital and learn all the tricks of emergency medicine as well as OPD . I feel that’s more than enough for a private practice. You can also take up DNB www.natboard.nic.in and then work in a good hospital.
