Published On:

M.Phil. is a two years degree program and according to PMDC criteria it is “Level II b” degree. (See PMDC Distribution of degrees). M.Phil. is mostly done in basic sciences such as

Anatomy Physiology
Biochemistry Forensic Medicine
Hematology Histopathology
Chemical Pathology Microbiology
Pharmacology Community Medicine
Behavioral Sciences

There are Pros and Cons of M.Phil. degree, so one should keep in mind before opting M.Phil.

Pros:

  • Two years Program with research work
  • First Years comprises of theory or classes and the second year is mostly dedicated to research work.
  • Most of the departments have regular morning shifts only. No extra calls are there except pathology where you have to do evening or night in hospital labs (but once in a month or so)
  • “Level II b” Degree according to PMDC Criteria
  • M.Phil. holders usually hold a teaching cadre. You can become an assistant Professor after one or two years of experience after passing M.Phil.
  • In Most cases, FCPS part 1 is also exempted after 2 years of passing M.Phil. and one-year training is also exempted. (In case of Pathology)
  • You can start Ph.D. and jump into “Level III”

Cons:

  • As this is a “Level II b” degree so you cannot come forward as associate professor or professor (According to PMDC revised criteria, i.e. “M.Phil. holders can become professor up to 31st December 2020”), but if you complete your Ph.D.  then you can excel further.
  • Some universities have a very low passing rate, so it may take some time to clear your degree especially the thesis work.
