    Some of them may be interested in Teaching profession for which MD Degree is mandatory / compulsory.

    3. Psychiatry,

    Studying for a Masters degree is an exciting prospect and there are many valid reasons to consider taking a postgraduate course. The most popular reasons for undertaking a Masters include:

    • progressing a current career path
    • improving employment prospects
    • developing a personal interest
    • progressing to a higher-level qualification (such as a Ph.D)
    • entering a particular profession
    • meeting the requirements of a current job

    Obtaining a Masters degree might be expensive, time-consuming and emotionally draining, but if you think futuristic it is worth in every aspect.

    Before opting MD (Homoeopathy) Think Wisely:

    If you are in an idea of pursuing MD so that in future you can land in a teaching career then you should consider many prevailing facts like

    Which College to Opt for PG Course?

    In India there are 18 Government colleges (412 seats), 02 Govt. Aided colleges (27 seats), 01 National Institute (47 seats) and 46 Private colleges (1206 seats) which are offering MD (Hom) degree. Out of these colleges if you are getting seat in government college you will be paid stipend every month during the 3 years PG course and the fees in government colleges are very less compared to private colleges. It's upto you to decide which college to choose depending upon your All India Ayush Post Graduate Entrance Test (AIAPGET) marks.

    Which speciality has more scope related to teaching?

    As mentioned above, there are 07 specialites in MD (Homoeopathy) and many of us think that all the specialities are equal, but it is not so. Depending upon your career options after MD each speciality differs in various aspects

    Option 1 - Practicing as Career 

    If you are going to become a Private Practitioner / Physician / Govt. Medical Officer / Pursuing Ph.D, etc., then all the specialities are same and equal.

    Option 2 - Teaching as Career 

    If you are going to select Teaching as your career then you should be very careful in selecting the speciality in MD (Homoeopathy). Now for your understanding we can divide 07 specialities into 2 groups like

    Group - I: Homoeopathy subjects like Organon, Materia Medica, Pharmacy, Repertory, Practice of Medicine

    Group - II: Exclusuive PG subjects like Paediatrics and Psychiatry

    Here comes the value and scope of the Group - I speciality, in which all those subjects are taught in both UG and PG colleges. So opting a speciality in Group - I subjects has more opportunity for you in getting a job in any of the 285 colleges (UG & PG) all over India.

    But if you are Opting Group - II speciality subjects then the opportunity of getting a job will be reduced to any of the 67 PG Colleges all over India. 

    So a Group - I subject candidate can work as a teacher in both UG and PG Colleges. But a person opting Group - II subject can work only in a PG college

    Now you may think! why a person completed MD Paediatrics or Psychiatry can't work in UG colleges, Yes? Of course they can work but they are forced to work as Assistant Professor in pre-clinical or UG subjects like Anatomy, Physiology, Forensic Medicine, Pathology, Surgery and OBG because, as per the prevailing norms of National Commission of Homoeopathy (NCH), the eligibility criteria for a teaching faculty in a Homoeopathy college is PG Degree in concerned subject. 

    So if you select Group - I subjects you have the option to work in UG or PG colleges and can be promoted as PG Faculty and PG Guide, etc., 

    But opting a Group - II Subjects will force you to work in Pre-clinical subjects in a UG College or you have the limited choice of working in only PG colleges offering Pediatrics and Psychiatry respectively where switching / transferring  to other UG college will be difficult.

    "Before starting a journey decide your destination... A wise man is proactive, not reactive". 

    So, if your dream is to become a teacher by profession think twice and opt the correct speciality in MD (Homoeopathy)

    All the Best for your future career...
