A medical degree is, broadly defined, any academic degree which places its holder in a position to engage in the practice of medicine. Studies have conducted in year 2011 in more than 1000 universities all over the world, which shows that these programs include more or less 64 university exams + 130 series exams + 174 assignments within 5.5 years (max 1000 working days). Students will have to require more than 85% marks in prerequisite courses in order to get enrolled for the aptitude test for these degree programs. They then have to clear the test with 85% to 90% marks which is highly uncomparable with all the other Bachelor degree programs including BCom, B.C.A, I.A.S, I.P.S and Engineering B.E and B.S. The World Health Organization has granted international recognition to certain widely offered conventional medical degrees.

Famous quotes containing the words degree and/or medical:
“Some crimes get honor and renown by being committed with more pomp, by a greater number, and in a higher degree of wickedness than others. Hence it is that public robberies, plunderings, and sackings have been looked upon as excellencies and noble achievements, and the seizing of whole countries, however unjustly and barbarously, is dignified with the glorious name of gaining conquests.”
—François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (16131680)
“Unusual precocity in children, is usually the result of an unhealthy state of the brain; and, in such cases, medical men would now direct, that the wonderful child should be deprived of all books and study, and turned to play or work in the fresh air.”
—Catherine E. Beecher (18001878)
