Medical colleges (Medical Schools) in India award MBBS degree. Licentiate qualifications in medicine and surgery, LMS or LMP, were also formerly awarded after a shorter medical course, originally at a “Medical School” rather than a “Medical College”.

In addition, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Bombay formerly awarded a licentiate at L.M.S level, a membership (M.C.P.S) at MB BS level and a fellowship (FCPS) at MD level. The State Medical Faculty of West Bengal (previously of Bengal) similarly gave licentiates and memberships on an external basis.
