Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery, or in Latin Medicinae Baccalaureus, Baccalaureus Chirurgiae (abbreviated in various ways, viz. MBBS or MB BS, MB BChir, BM BCh, MB BCh, MB ChB, BM BS, BM, BMed etc.), are the two first professional degrees awarded upon graduation from Medical school in Medicine and Surgery by Universities in various countries that follow the tradition of the United Kingdom.
The naming suggests that they are two separate degrees; however, in practice, they are usually treated as one and awarded together.
