The meaning of any abbreviation depends on context; different organizations and disciplines use the same abbreviations differently.

Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery is a medical definition. Duration of studies vary; it takes six years some places, five plus internship others, etc. It depends on the country.
