Salaries after MBBS


MBBS doctors have the opportunity to work both in government hospitals and private hospitals. There are also job opportunities in laboratories and in other manufacturing organisations as well as some NGO’s. Mostly they are employed as duty doctors and their salary could run to few tens of thousands of rupees.  

Salaries after MBBS in Government Hospitals

Most of the doctors who are working with government hospitals as a fresher will get any were between Rs.10000 to Rs.20000 if they are associated with a Mission Hospital. A MBBS Doctor is capable to receive even the double of this if he is working with central or state hospitals. There could be some special incentives for working over time or on holidays.

Salaries after MBBS in Private Institutions

Most of the private hospitals shells out a good deal of money as to recruit doctors with good experience and professional goodwill. A junior doctor can earn more than Rs 25000 a month with an MBBS. Private hospitals like APOLLO, MAX Fortis etc are some of the most popular hospitals in demand. The initial salary for MBBS doctors in these top shot hospitals can be Rs 25,000. Salary of each individual can vary and it depends on the capability of the individual.

Sometimes in private hospitals, junior doctors are paid on an hourly basis and they are paid special incentives when they work on night shifts and on holidays.

MBBS doctors can also find jobs in laboratories and as safety officers in other organisations, especially manufacturing firms. Here again the salary range could vary from 10, 000 Rs to 20,000 depending on the organisation and the city.

Remuneration after MBBS in Private Practice in India and Abroad

Indian Doctors have huge demand in most of the developed countries like USA, UK, Australia, Singapore and Middle Eastern countries. But with just an MBBS there won’t be much of an option available for students to bag huge salary. It is essential to gain higher degree certifications and specializations in the field of medicine as to get a secure position in the hospitals of these countries.
