A General Physician is a Medical Graduate having a MBBS (Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) Degree. This is a UG (Under-Graduate) degree awarded to students from medical universities who enter medical profession, completing a given tenure. Physician is well acclaimed with all the normal structure and functioning (i.e. Physiology) of almost all systems of the body (Or at least some knowledge about everything)

Generally, Physicians are the first resort, from which everyone seek help in acute conditions. In a Place like Mumbai, most of us visit a doctor with ailments such as Fever, Headache, Rash, an Injury, Any Skin Condition etc.A Physician may use various adjuncts to proceed his/her treatment. Of these, Prescription of drugs is mostly used.

Drugs such as Mild-to-Moderate Aspirin, Paracetamol i.e. NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), Analgesics are used for management of routine cases.For cases other than the ones encountered in routine, prescription is modified.For Example, A Physician starts the treatment of a patient with Hyper-Tension, with BETA Blockers, and then the dose is “tailored” depending on the patient’s requirement.

Here, Drug Dosage is entirely and purely based on diagnosis done by the Physician, which almost always depends on proper knowledge and experience, as many of the patient’s activities might hamper the effects of drugs on the body (i.e. Pharmacokinetics as well as Pharmacodynamics)Usually in today’s scenario, Nobody settles down with a single MBBS Degree these days.Almost every graduate seeks further specialization in fields of their interest.As per Medical Profession Report, 2015, following fields are the most chosen:
Masters In Surgery
