Charlotte King March 25, 2019, 8:47 a.m.

Hi Godfred - if you have a good BSc in nursing there should be plenty of postgraduate options open to you - and different universities will have different eligibility conditions - so you are best checking with the admissions department of the courses you are interested in. Good luck. Charlotte

Hi! Sir I get a degree of dhms ..now I will apply for master of public health in gynecology...so what is the complete procedure to apply for it...

Charlotte King Jan. 6, 2021, 12:26 p.m.

Hi Laiba – If you have achieved a 2.1 or higher in your DHMS degree then you should have no trouble achieving a successful application for an MPH program. Unlike with undergraduate applications and UCAS there is no centralised application process for postgraduate courses, so check the admissions and applications of the university you are interested in as all will differ slightly. Here is a link to all the MPH programs currently available to study in English >

Hi Mari – There is no upper age limit to study medicine and as long as you have the required qualifications you should be considered for admittance to medical school. Good luck!

Hi Fatia – most masters courses in Gynaecology require an undergraduate degree in medicine or a degree in a medical field such as nursing, midwifery or the bio-medical sciences. I recommend that you check with the admissions department of the course that you are interested in to see if your qualifications make you eligible to study this subject. Good luck.

I just finished my MBBS in Russia and want to do post-grad in OBG. What is the procedure? What am I suppose to do? I am clueless on how and where to begin? Please do help me out.

Charlotte King Sept. 12, 2021, 11:48 a.m.

It depends where you want to study your postgraduate course. Here is a list of the postgraduate courses in Gynaecology that are currently available to study in the UK and Europe > https://www.postgrad.com/courses/gynaecology/
In the UK applications for PG programs are usually made directly to the institution – so I suggest you start by finding a course that you are interested in and then contact their admissions department to find out what the next stage is.
Good luck!

Hi Adam – with that grade in a related subject you should definitely meet the entry requirements for studying a Masters in Gynaecology at an institution of your choice. This article on writing you personal statement should help you with the next step > https://www.postgrad.com/advice/application_process/postgraduate_personal_statement/
Good luck

Charlotte King Oct. 13, 2021, 9:26 a.m.

Hi Mark – BSc in Anatomy are more likely to lead to careers and further study in clinical and medical research rather than physically practicing medicine – however if this is a field that you want to go into and study at a higher level this should be a possibility. I suggest you contact a medical school at an institution that you're interested in and ask them how you can proceed. Good luck.
