    query

    Hi Teachers,

    Could you please suggest that in the sentence below do Medicine, Surgery, and Medical Oncology need to be written with capital letter or small letter?

    "After studying medicine and surgery in India, I worked for two years as an SHO in Medicine, Medical Oncology, and Surgery".

    I suppose the rule is that the name of the subjects or disciplines are not capitalized unless they happen to be the names of the languages. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Re: query

    In the context you provide, I would keep the capitalization. These are medical fields and are best spelled with capital letters.
