What is Medicine and Surgery about?

Medical practice is generally defined as being the science and practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Today it is carried out by doctors, nurses, surgeons and physicians.

Whenever we get sick we go to the hospital to lay a complaint and at the end of the day we are either treated or giving some prescriptions to follow so that we can get better and all these are being made possible by the doctors we have in the hospital. So the various doctors that are in different hospitals are like life savers and they are able to carry out this practice efficiently because of what they studied and the practical aspects they went through.

  • The pre-medical stage which is essentially natural and pure science-based
