    Good news for DNB candidates!
    Latest Government Gazette has equated DNB with MD/MS & DNB-SS with DM/MCh for job, promotion & higher studies(Superspecialization)!

  4. DNB courses

    Hello ritus,

    DNB OBGY has excellent prospects, in a hospital as well as in one's own practice, especially if one has a nursing home!

    Metrocities usually have latest technology & more intensive lecture series but in private hospitals one may not get much practical experience.Hence, one must work in a public setup after completing DNB terms!

    Both the places, Delhi & Kolkota, are good, but Delhi residents get more pay during DNB, than residents working in other states!Besides, being the administrative capital of all organizations including NBE & MCI, which are of utmost importance to us, Delhi has a slightly upper hand than any of the other cities in India, including Mumbai & Bangalore, to name a few.

    The best hospital to choose in any place is one which is primarily & almost exclusively one that is attending to patients of a particular subject!So for OBGY, hospitals like Fernandez hospital in Hyderabad are one of the best. If you get a seat there, you're lucky.Similarly, check the list for all such hospitals in Delhi & Kolkota, since you want a seat in one of these places.

    Asha Paidhungat.

    It seems MCI is above GOI, and Parliament's /President's Gazette Notification as the MCI Inspectors have refused to accept Drs. with DNB even for the post of SR on 10 March 2009!!!!! Now what else they require

    No future for any of the Doctors- compare yourself with your younger cousins/ family friends and you will get the answer.

    So dear friend don't just read this - do try to follow as out of us (all B grade Fools) one of my foolish friends have done PG Diploma in 2 subjects, then did his MD in one of the diploma subjects and DNB in second of the diploma subject.

    For last two and half yrs he was working as an Assistant Prof. in a Pvt Med. College, however, after the recent inspection of MCI he has beenbut asked to resign, SO CURRENTLY HE IS UNEMPOYED!! with 2 Diplomas and two MD degrees!!!!!!!!!

    It seems MCI is above GOI, and Parliament's /President's Gazette Notification as the MCI Inspectors have refused to accept Drs. with DNB even for the post of SR on 10 March 2009!!!!! Now what else they require

    However, after my MBBS; MD and DNB have joined my Family Business and i'm quiet happy as Luckily i did the right thing.

    So think all over again and then Decide but whatever you decide stick to it, the ABOVE ARE MY PERSONAL VIEWS and NOT TO HURT THE SENTIMENTS OF ANYONE PARTICULARLY the poor doctors brethern family/tribe.

    Gazzet regarding DNB equality

    it appears, the latest gazzet regarding DNB equality to MD/MD/DM/MCH is only for Pharmacology??

    Please read it carefully and comment.

    hello asha mam,
    been waiting for ur comments......plz help!!!!
  10. DNB


    I've read that circular of Government Gazette on NBE website. I got the impression that the equivalence is for all specialities & superspecailities, for all purpose (job, promotion, further studies).

    If MCI is not accepting it, the matter maybe brought to the notice of MOHFW, for further course of action.In the interest of doctors & because our country needs more number of qualified doctors, I really hope that the matter is soon & amicably solved between MCI & NBE!

    Dr.Vikram Shetty of Bangalore has formed a group of DNB graduates & residents & has filed a petition.He maybe able to give more details about the problem!

    queries on pass perentage

    dear madam,
    cud u plz give me some information regarding the pass percentage of primary DNB candidates wen it cums to peadiatrics and surgery.. wud like to pursue my course n in a fix regarding the subject of choice
  12. DNB courses


    Overall DNB pass rate is about 30%, so take up whichever branch you want to do, Paediatrics or Surgery!

    If you like surgical work, Surgery or its allied branch is a good choice.If not, take up any of the Medicine-allied subjects like Paediatrics, etc.

    Hi madam...

    i am planning to do DNB General Surgery after that can i compete for MCH exams? :roll:
  20. DNB courses


    After DNB Surgery, you can Superspecialize through DNB-SS or MCh!
    All ads mention MS Surgery or equivalent degree as eligibility criterion!

    mam i meant in obs and gynae!!!!
  23. DNB courses


    There are many good hospitals in Delhi, like Sir Gangaram, Stephen's etc
    where you can see many good cases & latestprocedures.However, as they are private hospitals, you may not get much practical experience, but if you've done DGO from a public hospital, that will suffice.

    DNB pass rate is not more than 30%, so be prepared for a few attempts, but once you get the degree, its nationally recognized!

    specialization after MD Com med

    i have done MD in community medicine. i now want desperately to come back to clinical practice. is there any way i can practice medicine? is there any super specialization which i am eligible for after MD com med, either in DNB or DM? please help
  25. DNB courses


    Instead of Superspecialization, you can do DNB in General Medicine, as that's allowed.However, for that, you've to do DNB-CET first.
    There are various courses in several good branches.

    Distance Education PG diploma courses:-
    a)Community/Preventive Cardiology
    b)Maternal Child Health
    e)Hospital & Health Administration

    Campus Education course by Dr.V.Mohan, Chennai, is very good!

    DNB courses without CET:Not MCI-recognized under Ist Schedule/IMC Act
    1.Rural Surgery,
    2.Family Medicine,
    3.Maternal Child Health
    4.Hospital & Health Administration

    Can i Do a superSpeciality in Peads or Intenal Medicine if i have a DNB peads or DNb med respectively . . . . basically wat are the courses i can take Abroad in US or Uk after Dnb Peads ??? plz reply
    am i elegible to study for some superseciality in us or uk after dnb from our country . . . plz plz do help me with this . references will also make me feel happy . . thx guys my first post here
  27. DNB courses


    You an surely do DM/DNB-SS after MD/DNB in Medicine or Paediatrics.Of course, there's a greater choice after MD/DNB Medicine, like Cardiology, Neurology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Rheumatology, Nephrology, & Haematology.After Paediatrics, you can superspecialize in Neonatology.

    In UK, one has to clear degrees like MRCP, while in USA, USMLE/Board Exam is mandatory.I've heard that USA gives a concession of one step of USMLE if you've cleared DNB.People also say that if you do a Fellowship in a subject like Radiology or Geriatrics, you get a similar concession in USMLE steps.However, these possibilities are hearsay & I'm unable to get any authentic information to that effect!

    Clinical Research is an extremely upcoming branch.Almost every country needs people for that.Another good branch is Hospital Administration.

    Hello sandy,

    Don't get so disheartened!They check Thesis thoroughly & sometimes ask you to resubmit it, after which, results of your practicals will be declared!

    Hello guest,

    DNB in Anaesthesiology has pass rate of ~30% so prepare for 2 attempts!

    maam i just wanted to know if an MCI unrecognised diploma candidate is eligible for secondary dnb?
  33. dnb courses


    If Diploma is recognized by a proper university, you're eligible for Secondary DNB!
    However, please note that unless they have got a primary candidate they won't take a Secondary DNB candidate!

    I have just cleared my DNB practs after appearing it for the third time..all the while i was under the impression that the academics we had at mumbai hospitals r very good for me to pass the practs..unfortunately i flunked twice...then i came across a private teaching at mumbai..He makes u present cases and discuss all the cases very much in detail.....the doctor gives u personal attention and discusses the topic in detail...he also tells u how to present the case confidently. I realised that i m not the first one to pass with his help..most of his students have cleared with him in the first time--this includes all the repeaters also...i have benefitted immensely and so thought of helping all u others.i know the pain of failing twice and dont want the remaining to undergo the same...very few people know about him...the doctor`s name is Dr. Nikhil Shah at kandivli..i m appealing to all the repeaters and freshers-- that this shall definitely help u all to pass the practs...please suit urself.

    Why depend on someone... start our own...!

    Ok i m with all of u... i have seen some of the doctors expressing concern about the scenario after DNB degree. My suggestion is that instead of going after government and teaching jobs where we will be compared to a MCI graduate, why not start our own hospitals or clinics... where only DNB graduates will be employed. Starting locally in cities we can form a network nationwide and will offer the best services with the latest treatments. We all know how good we are... so there is no need to show it to anyone... we will show our skills to the people of the country by our services. Govt can create obstacles only for our employment not for our practice... we are free to practice. This is one of the ways we can defeat our discrimination. If we plan starting from now we can provide a good future for the forthcoming generations of DNB graduates for whom the uncertianity wont be there. I know it looks too ideal but all great things start with such ideas. It is my personal dream to start such a network of hospitals with DNB graduates and offer our service to the citizens of our country. If there are any supporters for this idea i will be happy to discuss!!!
  43. Guest

    Guest Guest

    dr nick i agree with you---why not---we should start right away----and as a starting i will work only with DNB doctors cos i believe they are better than people who did pg in places like bihar;north east;south;cow belt----UP--rajasthan---haryana etc

    i have seen pg doctors in rajasthan who haven t seen a laparoscopic procedure in the whole 3 years o training
