 Medical Degree in Rural India

The Central government in India has introduced the Bachelor of Rural Medicine and Surgery (BRMS), a medical degree that could be obtained in three and a half years.

The course makes it possible for students from rural areas to become a part of the medical cadre and serve a urgent need in India's rural areas.

The decision to introduce the medical course was taken in Hyderabad at the two-day health ministers' meet, chaired by the Union minister of health and family welfare, Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad.

The degree will be offered by institutes in rural areas with a strength of fifty students. Students would be selected based on their score in the 10+2 examination with physics, chemistry and biology as subjects. With a six-month rotating internship, the BRMS degree would be acquired in two phases and at two different levels — Community Health Facility for one and a half years and secondary level hospitals for an extended period of two years.
