Higher education has come to the forefront in international debates about the healthcare sector. There has been a growing consensus among policy-makers and other stakeholders that the modern world requires more specialized Doctors with technical and professional skills.
Consequently, a postgraduation degree has become indispensable for Doctors. It gives Doctors the option to specialize in various medical disciplines, creating opportunities for career advancement and professional growth.
Benefits of a PG degree for Doctors
Enhanced Skill-set: The skills and qualities you develop during your postgraduate degree will enhance your qualification and help you stand out in a highly competitive medical sector.
Career Growth: If you are seeking growth within your existing practice, earning a PG degree is the norm. If you take the opportunity to add to your specialist knowledge, you will be rewarded both monetarily and intellectually.
Academic Reward: A PG degree also gives you the opportunity to pursue a specialist area of interest through a university-based module or an individual research project, or both.
Flexible Postgraduate programs
Often, unavailability of seats in medical colleges, hectic schedule and lure of existing practice make it difficult for Doctors to earn a postgraduation degree.
To overcome the above mentioned challenges, most medical colleges allow their students to exit before completing the full postgraduate course and they can gain either a PG Diploma or PG Certificate, depending on how many credits they have gained. In most cases, each stage of the postgraduate medical education curriculum lasts a year, which makes planning and coordinating training a lot easier.
A postgraduate certificate usually takes as little as six months and meets the selection criteria for most core/specialty and consultant applications. Also, most postgraduate courses can be completed full or part time, and the majority of medical schools allow distance learning, including PG Regular and Blended programs.
