please look at the sentence:

I go through the course prescribed for surgeon in army.

What does go through mean here and can you explain ' course prescribed for .....' for me?


I go through the course prescribed for a surgeon in the army.

go through means to participate in (and hopefully complete) a series of classes/activities (the course) that must be completed to become skilled in some profession.

prescribe as used here means:

4) to set down or impose rules; dictate

so in your example it refers to those rules and requirements that are specified for persons in that occupation.
