  1. Passed DNB after 40yrs age…prior to DNB worked as junior resident for 5 yrs.is there any way to upgrade to senior resident after 40yrs age.

  2. How are the MD/MS candidates from private colleges entering through donation better than DNB candidates? Why are their no rules to regulate their education? It is sad..DNB has tougher exit exam, better academics than most govt (so called \”teaching\”) hospitals…and yet these students are treated inferiorly just because MCI wants to satisfy it\’s ego. Very sad and shameful.

  3. Both MD and DNB are degree courses of 3 yrs involving submission of thesis. MD candidates from govt hospitals are exposed to only a slightly different variety of patients compared to DNB candidates. How does this make DNB candidates less qualified considering they have tougher exit exam and higher protocol and thesis rejection rate. And why are the MD/MS candidates from private colleges entering through donation better than DNB candidates?

    I think the criteria of number of beds is not good. Most of the good hospital in Delhi r 500 beded but they show slightly less number than 500 beds , so that they don\’t have to pay for registration fee ,and the second cause to show free beds less .
