The medical domain in India is especially lucrative. We will always need doctors and healthcare workers. When there is a high demand, there is also likely to be a high level of supply. And there are indeed lakhs of students each year that give the NEET examinations to kick start their medical careers.
However, when there are so many people wanting to become doctors, there needs to be some idea as to what jobs there are for students post completion of their degree. Over the first few years (0-2) a MBBS graduate
is likely to earn a monthly income of 25000 to 35000. In India, the demand for doctors exceeds the supply and there is indeed a dire need of good doctors. For this reason there are a lot of recruiters. Government clinics
are probably the top recruiters of MBBS students but pay a lower pay grade than private clinics. The top private recruiters in India are:
MBBS students usually seek job opportunities in the more populous and cosmopolitan cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru etc, because of a high number of recruiters and higher average pay.
A student may even want to pursue further studies, complete their MD degree
and then move onto more specialised fields which include:
1.Medical Surgeon – This job is probably the highest paying and promises an average income of 10 lakhs INR, annually.
2.Dietician – After further studies in nutritions, a dietician may earn an average of 5 lakhs INR, annually.
3.Physician – A physician is the next sought after job after surgeons and earns an average of about 6 Lakhs, annually
4.Pediatrician – Further studies is growth and development of children may enable a MBBS graduate to become a pediatrician and earn an average of 5.4 Lakhs INR, annually.
5.Medical Officer – This is a surprisingly higher paying job than most of
these other fields, promising an annual income of 7 Lakhs INR.
6.Medical Coder – A medical coder, responsible for keeping records of diagnostics and treatments carried out by doctors, may earn as much as 4 lakhs per annum.
This list is, again, by no means exclusive. After one completes their MBBS, there are a vast number of fields available to them. A student, over the course of their study, is likely to have decided in their area of specialisation which may or may not include one of the above specialised professions.
