MD-DNB Equivalence: ANBAI to submit Charter of Demands to PM, HM

All India DNB Alumni Association under ANBAI is going to submit a charter of demands on the behalf of DNB passouts of the country to the Health Ministers, Medical Associations, Medical Council of India (MCI) and to even the Prime Minister of India, Mr Narendra Modi

Secunderabad:  The Association of National Board Accredited Institutions (ANBAI) held its first meeting of All India DNB Alumni Association at Academic Hall, Yashoda Hospital in Secunderabad, recently.

The meeting saw the key participation of eminent medical professionals including Executive Director of National Board of Examinations (NBE), Dr A Lingaiah, All India DNB Alumni Coordinator, Dr Sunil Sharma, Joint Secretary, National ANBAI and many other flagship bearers of DNB union.

During the meet, doctors highlighted the need and importance of a common platform for all DNB passouts. “It’s a familiar fact that there is lack of DNB graduates in our country and they have no uniform platform to represent them. For this purpose, ANBAI has launched All India DNB Alumni Association in a bid to provide a unified voice to all the DNB graduates. The main goal of this association is to unite all these doctors across the country,” Dr. A Lingaiah told Medical Dialogues.

The meeting also saw a formation of the state representatives of ANBAI- DNB Alumni Association, whereby now, 15 states will have a representative for All India DNB Alumni Association.

A  detailed discussion on MD-DNB equivalence took place in the light of the concerning provision in the upcoming National Medical Commission (NMC) bill.

” It has been decided that the All India DNB Alumni Association is going to submit a charter of demands on the behalf of DNB passouts of the country to the Health Ministers, Medical Associations, Medical Council of India (MCI) and to even the Prime Minister of India, Mr Narendra Modi.” Dr Sunil Sharma told Medical Dialogues

Speaking on another concerning issue of DNB passouts with a lack of convocation after completion of the course, NBE’s Executive Director stated on behalf of the governing body of NBE that the convocation of past 3 years would be held in the last week of July 2018.

    Definitely it must be represent before NBE and PM for MD-DNB Equivalence.

  2. The issue of shortage of faculty in privately run medical colleges can be sorted to with inclusion of DNB as faculty.

  3. If national medical council still creates this difference, Only option remaining for DNBs is to move out of country.

    Medical teaching can easily be learnt by a DNB specialist / super specialist in no time, once he reaches a Medical Collage as Assistant Proffesor. There is no course on Teaching even in Medical Collages nor any supervision by faculty, AP just learn it by hit and try method. It\’s only the stupid egoclash of MCI, which is depriving Medica Collages , sufficient and good faculty. Better make B. Ed. course compulsory for both Medical Collage and DNB specialists/super specialists

    When a person joins a corporate hospital recognised for DNB training, he becomes specialist after passing the exam and if he passes the exam after training in a medical college, he is both specialist and medical teacher. Students should be aware of this as MCI did not recognise the DNB degrees obtained through training in hospitals.

    DNB is a good and well qualified degree if done in appropriate hospitals and under a good team of doctors…
    Atleast DNB training institutes should develop a standard code, protocol of teaching and learning and get approved by MCI annually so that nobody questions the quality of degree..DNB trainees are used as duty doctors in most of the privatehospitals , no recognised or permanent teachers will be in the unit, no library available in the study hospital, no organised teaching programme conducted regularly….All these issues probably will be discussed….by the MCI…

  7. When we know that DNB is not for teaching, then why a person who is interested in teaching joins ,such a course which is not officially recognised for teaching. If some wants to go in teaching, don\’t go for DNB. Go for MD/MS. Select your career carefully.
