    YOu should have asked this question before counselling

    Even after finishing your MBBS you are not clear about your future...............
    One thing is clear..... I will not consult "shaky" people like you if I fall sick......... You will give my one drug and AFTER giving will wonder about that :twisted:

    MS ENT, MD Path and MD PSM are definitely better than DMRD......

    If you have taken MD Radio, that is good

    i dont agree with bruno sir when he says md spm is better than dmrd, can you pl explain how?

    Guest Guest

    i dont think its a bad choice at all....esp if u are intersted in the field...you can always do 2yr DNB later on to become equivalent to MD[/quote]

    After DMRD.....

    1. You set up a private practise

    You will get lots of cases, but have to work hard.
    Second Opinions Are given to MD Radio and Not DMRD


    2. You work in a Corporate Hospital

    YOu will hardly become the head of the dept. They will always like to publish a MD Radio as their Consultant Radiologist and DMRD will be the Jr.Resident or Duty Radiologist. Don't worry :lol: You will be called at nights for emergencies and paid Rs 250, (for driving up 3 AM in the night) but the next day, the MD Radio will come in the morning (for his usual rounds) and repeat the scan and get Rs 500


    3. You enter Govt Service

    You will have to attend the emergencies, but will not become a professor or HOD

    It is MD Radio that is respected in Corporate or Govt Setup

    So Dr.Bruno ,

    YOu mean to say , an MD is ANYDAY better than a diploma [ even if its backed up with DNB later on , assuming we get thru DNb part 2 ! ] no matter where you get your MD from ? Vs getting a diploma from a very good place :?: :?:

    Guest Guest

    In my opinion

    1. MD or MS is better than Diploma

    2. Dip NB and MD / MS are equal

    MD is Better
    If you get DNB both are equal
  11. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Sorry to trouble you again , Dr.Bruno, what abt the following situations ?
    1) MBBS + MD/MS + DNB part 2 which can be given directly
    2) MBBS + DNB
    3) MBBS + diploma + DNB

    From what you told , 1 & 3 are equal , what abt 1 & 2 [ assmuing we pass dnb 2 in both the settings ] ?

    Thank you so much for clearing the doubt

    I would believe that being happy with your subject is the objective to be achieved.

    Even if I get a diploma in that subject it would be better to opt for that, than opting for some subject where you are not internally happy doing that Job.

    Also some fields like Anaesthesia give almost equal weightage to Diploma / degree. In Anaesthesia what matters is your experience in speciality > Obstetric / Cardiac / Neuro Anaes...

    Some speciality like orthopeadics, Psychiatry > Diploma is Ok

    Apart from that it is your work and reptation that speak after a certain amount of time.

    Me too , totally agree with AIPPG support , just asked the Q to clear things up in terms of job prospects etc , of course ultimately it comes down to whwat you want to become in life & how well you achieve it .....
  15. DMRD IS MUCH BETTER THAN MD-PSM/MD-PATH/OR MS-ENT. ENT IS A DYIMG BR AS WELL AS PATH DUE 2 MUCH COMPETITION. PSM MAY B BETTER BUT STILL RADIOLOGISTS R LESS IN OUR COUNTRY IN GENERAL & I, WITH FULL REGARDS TO, TOTALLY DISAGREE DR BRUNO IN THIS CASE. DIPLOMA OR DEGREE DOESN'T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE, IF THE PERSON IS CAPABLE.
  16. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Totally agree with this


    That is in Private Practise
    I am also taking into consideration the Corporate Setup and Govt Setup


    Job Prospects (when you are the employer - ie - Private Practise ) Diploma may be enough,
    But
    When the employer is Government or Corporate Hospitals, Degree is always better than diploma
    In Govt setup
    A person with Diploma will have to work like a person Degree (or even more than that), but your promotion and other benefits will be like MBBS

    In Corporate Setup,

    They will appoint you ONLY when they do not have a Degree walah competing along with you and even if you are appointed, the person with a degree will be always treated in a better way.

    For example I have seen many occasion where they need 2 Paediatricians and when they get 10 applications, they outright reject DCh and call only the MD Paed (and Dip NB) for the interview

    My order of Preference

    1) MBBS + MD/MS + DNB part 2 which can be given directly
    3) MBBS + diploma + DNB
    2) MBBS + DNB


    But after your MBBS, if you are faced with the option of

    Diploma
    or
    DipNB

    you have to choose Dip NB
  18. I STILL FEEL RADIOLOGY AS A BRANCH, IN CORPORATE/PRIVATE PRACTICE IS EQUAL 2 MD; NOT IN GOVT JOB. HOW MANY STATE COLLEGES DR BRUNU, U CAN COUNT WHO HAV CT SCAN, LEAVE SPEAKING OF MRI; WHAT MD LEARNS IN MD, SAME DMRD LEARNS IN DMRD IN THE COURSE, IF THEY R NOT IN AIIMS/PGI/JIPMER/SGPGI N FEW OTHER COLLEGES EG KEM 2 NAME A FEW. EARNING IS NOT A PROBLEM EVEN FOR MBBS, BUT PEDS/PATH/ENT/GEN. MED/GEN. SURG. ETC. R DIFFERENT BRANCHES: THERE IS MUCH SATURATION AND COMPETITION. AS FAR AS RADIO IS CONCERNED, I DONT SEE SUCH THING. N WHY TO MAKE A PERSON SAD OF HIS/HER DECISION? LET HIM/HER NOT REGRET THE DECISION LEST HE/SHE RESIGNS 2 PREPARE AGAIN N A SEAT IS WASTED IF IT'S AFTER 1ST MAY, [COURTSEY SUPREME COURT OF INDIA'S RULES].

    well in the last,

    it can be safely said the the the decision made by the person was not wrong....opinions will always differ nevertheless :shock:
  20. Guest

    Guest Guest

    There is a grading which goes like this ..... Correct ..... Not Wrong ..... Not correct ...... Wrong

    And what is correct for me can be wrong for you and not wrong for naveen and not correct for vicky :roll: :shock:

    What I am telling is MY opinion........

    That you and I know........ but not the general public and governments and NON MEDICAL Administrators in Hospitals

    This is what I am telling....... In govt, you need Degree........


    Well........... I didn't intend it :(
