  1. DNB-CET

    Hello Harsha,

    DNB-CET is conducted twice a year, so apply only after getting Internship completion certificate, permanent registration from SMC & MBBS Degree certificate!

    thank u mam...
    can you tell me the criteria we should look for, to select a seat in a particular hospital, specially radiology..,
    what hospitals do u suggest in hyderabad?
  3. DNB courses

    Hello Harsha,

    Hospitals which have the latest imaging techniques are good, as you'll be able to learn about recent advances in Radiology.

    Hyderabad has several good hospitals like Apollo, Yashoda, etc, so ask someone who has worked there.

    good evening maam
    ive got seat in micro dnb and have confirnmed d seat
    but now have been offered dnb patho n have 1 day time to think over it..
    im confused wat to do .
    which is better subject ?? what r future prospects in both fields?
    immunology comes under microbiology or pathology?
    fellowship in infectious diseases can be done in micro?
    can i get fees refunded if i decide to leave ?
  6. DNB courses


    Microbiology has more scope-you're wanted in hospitals & pharmaceutical companies.You can even do a fellowship in infectious diseases later.

    Only if you've funds to start Pathology lab, its worth doing DNB.Presently, best scope is for Histopathology-if you've specailized in that, you're taken up by any major hospital, esp.cancer institutes!

    If you leave a course inbetween, you'll lose your fees as well as a term!

    Asha Paidhungat.

    aditi_rnry Guest

    thanks a lot maam for timely guidance ... :D
    i hadnt thought of pharma companies, if it is so then definitely
    then the scope widens for micro..
    wat is d difference in doing micro after mbbs and bsc/msc micro candidates?? :?:
  8. DNB courses


    MD/DNB qualified microbiology doctors have a much better perspective of the subject than others!

    Many colleges have B.Sc, M.Sc & even Ph.D in Microbiology, but unless its a Medical Microbiology like Karnataka, students are not aware of what micro-organisms do to human body, since they only study them in vitro!

    Medical Microbiology course of Karnataks teaches Anatomy, Physiology, etc in 4 years, so they have a better idea of in-vivo actions of antibiotics than regular students of M.Sc Microbiology!

    Asha Paidhungat.

    DNB Ob. & Gync theory preparation

    Hello Dr.Asha Madam,
    You have been very helpful and kind in replying to all & everybodys queries.
    I am doing DNB in Ob. & Gync but somehow unable to clear the theory exam. I have given 2 attempts. Can you give me some tips to clear the theory exam in Ob.& Gyni.
  12. DNB Courses


    I'm sorry that you've to reappear for DNB OBGY Theory exam, but don't lose heart.DNB is a tough exam with ~25% results in any branch so this is expected!

    From previous papers, you must have got a rough idea about the pattern of exam, i.e which topics they stress upon!Apart from following standard textbooks, you've to mainly read latest journals.Watch for newsreports as many examiners ask 2-3 questions on that!

    Currently, emphasis is on following topics:-
    a)Options of infertility treatment.
    b)Foetal sex determination test.
    c)Medical termination of pregnancy.
    d)Surrogate mother & its difficulties.
    e)Early detection of gynaec malignancy.
    f)Newer diagnostic techniques in OBGY.
    g)IUGR-prevention & management.
    h)HIV+ve pregnancy-delivery/breastfeeding.

    Most importantly, solve many questions in a systematic manner!

    Asha Paidhungat.

    Admissio0n in DNB General Medicine in Jan 2010

    Hello Mam,

    I have passed DNB CET Exam in June2009 now i want to join the Dnb General Medicine in jan 2010 Delhi or Nearby Can u suggest me which hospital i should join in Jan in delhi . Please guide me.
  15. DNB Courses


    There are many good institutes in & around Delhi, like Sir Gangaram, RML hospital, St.Stephen's, Herbertpur Christian Hospital(Dehradun), to name a few!Most institutes prefer candidates who already worked with them, so people do plain post in an institute & apply in December/June thereafter. Keep a watch on DNB ads in leading newspapers as they'll appear around December 2009! ALL THE BEST!

    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.

    hello dr asha,
    i have cleared dnb cet held on december 2009,didnt get my result card ,,,got to know the results from NBE site..wat r the formalities to join dnb course in a college...should i wait for the result card to come by post or should i start giving applications to collees of my interest?
    also plz advise whether dnb-geenral medicine is better or dermatology....as i am interested in both ....which is having a better chance for passing..
    plz help
  31. DNB

    Hello avanthika,

    DNB Dermatology has a better scope especially for ladies as it doesn''t have hectic schedule or emergencies like General Medicine.Its a broad specialty with the advantages of a superspeciality!

    Take a print out of result seen on NBE website so that you can use it like a provisional pass certificate when you apply for DNB somewhere.

  35. DNB


    Check the NBE website for list of accredited institutes in metro cities, of course those institutes which have a valid accreitation for about 2 years. I believe charitable hospitals give lot of independent hands-on experience.

    Dermatology, OBGY & Nuclear Medicine are excellent, but institutional attachment is required for Nuclear Medicine. OBGY can be done in own hospital or by attachment to someone else's nursing home. That way, Dermatology is least expensive to start own clinic & has good scope!

    hello asha mam,
    can you tell me if there is any rule that one has to pass dnb exams within a stipulated time (3 atempts) or else wud have to start the course afresh?
    my 2 nd q is in the official site it is mentioned that the hospitals have to pay that amt of salary they r paying to the MD/MS trainees......is it true?
  43. DNB plastic surgery (6yrs)

    Could u plz share any available information on DNB plastic surgery 6yrs that i heard is about to begin at some hospitals.
    Is it from this june that they will be starting the course ?
    Is it advisable to join a 6yr DNB course with such low pass percentage.?
    If at all one passes in an attempt or two what are the future prospects... won't the big shot hospitals favour Mch (plastic) for filling theirs vacancies.?

    Alternatively, how tough is it to get into an MCH plastic course after MS Surgery.
    i am dead sure serious about pursuing plastic surgery ... but which track to go along :
    MS, MCH
    MS, DNB-ss
    DNB, DNB-ss
    DNB (6yr)

    Plz help.

    Clarification regarding qualification

    Hello all. I am a little confused hence seeking help. My wife has completed PG diploma (DCH) and wants to pursue DNB now. For July 2010 session the CET form submission date is over. My question is whether for registering as a DNB candidate qualifying in CET is must or is there a relaxation for PG diploma holders if they want to pursue DNB in same field. The NBE website is not very clear about this.

    A worried non-medico husband!

    If your wife's dch is recognized by MCI,then she dosen't have to clear the DNB exam.She can join as a secondary candidate in dnb pediatrics (2yrs for diploma holders)if her dch is a CPS / Non recognized course ,she has to clear the DNB and apply as a primary candidate (3yrs)
