Hyderabad: Through a recent circular, the KNRUHS has informed about the postponement of Post Graduate Medical, Super Speciality and Dental examinations.
The Post Graduate Medical, Super Speciality and Dental examinations scheduled to be held from 5th May and 18 th May 2021 are postponed in view of the COVID-19 pandemic until further orders stated the notice.
The notice further added, "In accordance with the Advisory of National Medical Commission dated 27-04-2021, all the Post Graduate students are hereby directed to report at their respective institutions for resuming duties,"
Medical Dialogues had earlier reported that in light of the delay in the conduction of NEET PG 2021 and all other medical examinations across the medical institutions, all the PG medical students will continue their services as resident doctors until a fresh batch of MBBS graduates joins to serve, according to the recent advisory released by the National Medical Commission (NMC).
This decision has been taken to ensure that there would not be any shortage of Residents to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.
NEET Pg examination for admission to postgraduate courses has also been delayed. Consequently, the start of academic session 2021-22 will be delayed and new batch of PG students will join their respective colleges only after counseling which will happen only after PG-NEET is held.
Therefore, in view of these circumstances, in order to ensure that there is no shortage of Residents in handling the surge of COVID-19 cases, the services of these postgraduate students as Residents may be continued to be utilized until fresh batches of postgraduate students have joined, stated the advisory.
The NMC advisory added, All Medical Institutions, including Central/ State/ UT Government Institutions or Private Institutions are also advised to continue:
