    HELLO,

    AS FAR AS I KNOW, UK & USA STILL DO NOT RECOGNIZE OUR INDIAN DEGREES, THOUGH OUR GOVERNMENT IS TRYING HARD, TO GET DNB RECOGNIZED IN OTHER NATIONS. SO UNTIL THEN, PLAB & USMLE ARE MANDATORY, IF YOU WISH TO GO FOR FURTHER STUDIES, TO UK OR USA RESPECTIVELY.

    ONLY RUSSIA, POLAND, BULGARIA & FEW OTHER EASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES RECOGNIZE OUR M.B.B.S & PG DEGREES SO FAR.SO THEY ARE ALLOWED TO RUN M.B.B.S COURSES & PG COURSES WHICH ARE VALID IN INDIA, PROVIDED THAT THE STUDENTS PASS THE SCREENING TEST CONDUCTED BY THE MEDICAL COUNCIL OF INDIA.

    FOR MORE DETAILS, CHECK THE WEBSITES OF DNB & MCI.

    no not in middle east-atleast not in the part i work
    DNB HAS absolutely no value
    its your pg degree/ not diploma and your past experience esp in medical college set up is more useful

    HELLO,

    AS THE INDIAN HEALTH MINISTRY IS CONSIDERING THE RECOGNITION OF DEGREES FROM EUROPE, UK & USA, IN A RECIPROCAL MANNER, IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE, THAT VERY SOON, THE DNB DEGREE AS WELL AS THE MD/MS DEGREES, WILL BE RECOGNIZED THERE.

    THE FULL FORM OF DNB=DIPLOMATE NATIONAL BOARD.
    IT IS NOT A DIPLOMA, BUT IS A DEGREE THAT IS EQUIVALENT TO THE MD/MS DEGREE IN THAT BRANCH, AS PER THE G.R FROM THE HEALTH MINISTRY. EVEN THEN, THE MCI IS NOT WILLING TO GIVE IT THE SAME WEIGHTAGE AS MD/MS!

    IN THIS ISSUE BETWEEN MCI & DNB BOARD, THE SUFFERERS ARE THE STUDENTS & IN TURN, OUR COUNTRY, WHICH NEEDS DOCTORS VERY BADLY!EARLIER, BOTH DNB + MD/MS WERE POSSIBLE EVEN IN MAJOR TEACHING HOSPITALS, PROVIDED THAT THEY HAD A 1:1 RATIO OF STUDENTS:TEACHERS AS WELL AS THE NECESSARY FACILITIES THERE, BUT INSPITE OF G.R FROM HEALTH MINISTRY, IT ISN'T ACCEPTABLE TO THE MCI, WHICH HAS VIRTUALLY INSTRUCTED ALL ITS ACCREDITED INSTITUTIONS THAT THEY SHOULDN'T CONDUCT BOTH THE COURSES THERE, OR ELSE, THEIR INSTITUTION WILL BE IMMEDIATELY STAND AS DERECOGNIZED UNDER MCI!

    SO THE END RESULT IS, THAT GOOD STUDENTS ARE DEPRIVED OF AN EXCELLENT TRAINING AT PUBLIC HOSPITALS, WHICH NOT ONLY HAVE A RATHER MASSIVE WORKLOAD, BUT IT IS IN THESE VERY INSTITUTIONS, THAT THE POOR PATIENTS CAN REALLY AFFORD TO GET THEMSELVES TREATED FOR THEIR AILMENTS, SINCE THE COST FACTOR IS SIMPLY PROHIBITIVE, IN MOST PRIVATE HOSPITALS. THE TRAINING THAT ONE CAN GET IN SUCH A HOSPITAL, WHERE POVERTY-RIDDEN PATIENTS GET ADMITTED, IS BOUND TO BE DIFFERENT FROM THOSE WHERE AFFLUENT INDIVIDUALS CAN AFFORD TO GO.

    APART FROM THIS, OF COURSE, THE VACANT SEATS OF MD/MS, WHICH CAN'T BE FILLED UP AFTER 31ST MAY, LAPSE IN THE PROCESS, SO ITS A LOSS FOR THE STUDENTS IN THE WAITING LIST OF ALL INDIA & STATE LEVEL ENTRANCE EXAMS ! THE MCI SHOULD AT LEAST ALLOW SUCH SEATS TO BE ALLOTTED TO DNB STUDENTS, SO THAT THE WORK OF THAT DEPARTMENT/HOSPITAL DOESN'T SUFFER.

    AFTER ALL, HOW MUCH WORK CAN A TIRED HORSE DO, HOWEVER MANY WHIPS ONE MAY LASH OUT AT IT? IT IS RATHER UNFORTUNATE, THAT NOONE ACTUALLY REALIZES THE EXASPERATION & HELPLESSNESS OF THESE OVERWORKED DOCTORS IN PUBLIC HOSPITALS!

    ON ONE HAND, A RATHER SLOW RATE OF MUCH-REQUIRED TIME-BOUND PROMOTIONS TO THE LEVEL OF SR.LECTURER/ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR & PROFESSOR, IN PUBLIC HOSPITALS, LEADS TO A LACK OF TEACHERS, WHICH IN TURN, LEADS TO A SHORTAGE OF STUDENTS & SOMETIMES, EVEN DERECOGNITION OF THE DEPARTMENT!

    ON THE OTHER HAND, WE ARE DENYING MANY MORE DESERVING STUDENTS FROM QUALIFYING TO THE PG LEVEL, WHICH IS NOT ONLY REQUIRED FOR A PERSON TO BECOME ELIGIBLE AS AN MD/MS TEACHER BUT IS ALSO THE NEED OF THE DAY, FOR OUR OWN COUNTRYFOLKS!
