India is home to some world class medical colleges. These colleges offer various courses in medical science, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Students may go for various degrees like MBBS, MS, BDS, MD, MDS etc.
Majority of the medical colleges in India were established in the 50s and 60s in the 20th-century by the State and the Central Governments. But since 1980s, many private colleges emerged all across India. The quality and the standard of the medical institutes are looked after by the Medical Council of India.
