    Since you are currently pursuing MBBS you can apply through the Short Service Commission. There is an age limit of 45 years. Before applying make sure that you have completed you MBBS degree. Get yourself permanently registered with State Medical Council. Make sure that you are pursuing the course from an institute recognized by the Medical Council. Only then can you apply for any vacancies. There will be advertisements in the newspapers calling for suitable candidates for these posts. There is another option for those who have just cleared their 12th standard. They can apply to AFMC and go a MBBS course under them. This will give a direct opening for joining the army.

    Re: How to join the Indian Army as a doctor after MBBS?

    You have two options available. You can go through the Short Service Commission or AFMC Cadet Entry. The eligibility for both entries are different. In the SSC the applicant can be up to the age of 45 years and must acquire a medical certificate from a recognized university by the Medical council of India. Candidates are obliged to be registered with any of the Indian state council or its equivalent. As for the AFMS cadet entry, candidates must have a 10+2 with PCB with not less than 60% of marks. If you get admission to MBBS in AFMC, then it will be very easy to enter into the army as an MBBS doctor. Or else, if you are a student in other recognized college other than AFMC then you have to apply for vacant posts which will be advertised in the employment news for the army doctors post. Main criterion a candidate must keep in mind is to possess a medical qualification and to have a permanent registration from any State Medical Council.

    Hi

    Its good to hear that you want to serve for the nation. Yes, you can surely join army after your MBBS. You get yourself registered in the IMC(Indian Medical Council). Then apply for SSC(Short Service Commission) throught which you can get to join the army.

    There was another option for you to join army directly. That was you could have taken up AFMC(armed forces medical college) exam and you could have taken up a course there. All the students graduted from this college have to serve the army.
    Anyway All the Best.
