Why should doctors consider a Super Speciality degree?

Becoming Super Specialists is the need of the hour. Due to the rising complexity in diseases and other medical problems, it’s more desirable to seek a specialist than a general practitioner. It has become crucial for doctors to opt for a super speciality degree even after an MD or MS. Medical science is constantly evolving and many super speciality hospitals are taking root, thus, there is a dire need for effective management of medical practices and processes.

The two most recognised super speciality degrees are Doctorate of Medicine (DM) and MagisterChirurgiae (MCh). Both these degrees require a 3-year course of further study and training. DM is a medical super specialisation that can be done in branches like Cardiology, Neurology, Nephrology, Gastroenterology and more. MCh is a super speciality that can be done in branches like Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Endocrine Surgery, Neurosurgery, Urology, Plastic Surgery etc.
