    How do these two degrees differ because the standard entry course for Medicine for most unis offers MBBS? But, I'm applying for some foundation programmes which offer a BMBS.

    Can you still be a successful doctor with BMBS/ is there more training?
    Thanks

    It's exactly the same thing, it's just what each university decides to call it. All medical degrees make you a qualified doctor and you do the same amount of training as everybody else.

    It's just a different abbreviation that universities use. There's a whole selection like MBBS, MBChB, BMBS, BM BCh, and more. They all mean Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery.

    Never understood the MBBS myself, seems like the "M" and "B" are the wrong way round (how does medicine of bachelor make sense?). But, yeah, they're the same, my medical school uses BMBS.
