MD, or Doctor of Medicine, is a three-year postgraduate course that MBBS graduates can take after completing their undergraduate medical education. The Doctor of Medicine (DM) course is also a three-year course, but it is a highly specialized course for doctors to receive specialized training in their respective fields. Since this is a PhD, a graduate medical degree is required.
