  1. DNB Post graduate qualifications should be made into one MD/MS /DM/MCh, there should not be any ambiguity . DNB exams are outside of residency place , very difficult to clear, many times local language also play role in making a clinical decision & reasonable differential diagnosis

  2. Sure MS/MD is not equivalent to DNB, want a proof, give your MD/MS final exam in an institute from another state, not in the hospital where you have done residency. You\’ll know the true meaning of Post graduation exam.

    Good evening to all the doctors. First of all change the name DNB to MD/MS. After changing the name the equivalence automatically will come to everybody. Every doctor will be treated equally.

  4. The best and the easiest thing would be to ask MCI to rename DNB as MD. The problem of Equivalence will then automatically Vanish. Already the govt.is in the process of increasing MD seats by leaps and bounds.
    So, in one stroke Govt can create so many seats. Universities are now not required to impart Education. It is the Coaching institutes which impart the REAL Education. Hurray! God Save us from these Thinkers.

  5. surgical hand for DNBcandidates in daycare procedure for eg in ophthalmology of many institutes of DNB is far better than many MS hospitals. Atleast they should allow DNB Candidates to appear for MD/MS exams also at d end of their degree to assess their equivalance if they are still doubtful…
