Simultaneous DNB courses at Medical Colleges: Medical council of India rejects proposal

Simultaneous DNB courses at Medical Colleges: Medical council of India rejects proposal

New Delhi: The recent meeting of  Post Graduate Committee of the Medical Council of India saw the council setting aside a proposal made by Sh. Devendra Fadnavis, Hon’ble Chief Minister, Maharashtra regarding flexible conditions for starting DNB courses in Government Medical Colleges. The proposal sought simultaneous running of DNB courses along with MD/MS courses in departments of government medical colleges against extra faculty, if available.

It is reported that a proposal to this effect was given by the Ministry of Health through a letter dated 08/03/2018 from Sh. Devendra Fadnavis, Hon’ble Chief Minister, Maharashtra. The Ministry then forwarded the proposal to MCI for perusal.

The proposal sought flexible conditions for starting DNB courses in Government Medical Colleges and the main suggestion was that DNB course should be permitted simultaneously with MD/MS in government medical colleges against extra faculty if available in the department.

After going through the proposal, the PG committee of the council outright rejected the same noting the following

The PG Committee discussed in detailed and observed that the requirement for PG seats is not only faculty but other facilities like number of units, number of beds and other infrastructure. If an institution has extra faculty and all these other facilities mentioned above, they can easily take more number of MD/MS seats rather than requesting for DNB. Hence the suggestion of simultaneously running both the courses (MD and MS/ DNB) in government medical colleges cannot be accepted.

The committee also noted that in light of the recent one-time increase in medical colleges without inspection that was awarded last year by the council, medical colleges would not have any extra faculties left

It will be pertinent to mention here that during the year 2017-18 and 2018-19 one time increase (without inspection) have been given to all government medical colleges across the country who has required faculty and other infrastructure and number of seats have been sanctioned in proportion to that. Hence, it is clear that no college is having extra facilities / faculty against which the DNB seats can be given simultaneously.

  1. Why to run simultaneously DNB in medical colleges. What a stupid idea. If we can run DNB in medical colleges ,then why not we can increase more MD/MS seats . Why to produce DNB\’S in medical colleges. Why so much love for DNB\’S.
    By admitting one student for DNB in medical college, notorious brains want to equalise DNB with MD/MS, Just to make availability of cheap faculty for Pvt. Medical colleges without considering the standard and quality of DNB\’s. Well done MCI ,stand for standard of medical education.

  2. you are also victim of divide and rule politics and so MBBS students. The MCI has one of the most corrupt body of recent times with so much irregularities and corruption in the medical system eg Ketan Desai. Moreover you can easily purchase MCI recognized MD/MS seats throwing crores of money and colleges just sell of the MBBS & MD/MD seats.. just go & negotiate. They have not been able to recognize good colleges, not been able to make good policies & never changes their age old laws. What is this nonsense going on and who allowed colleges to sale medical seats.

    MCI should be dissolved and new committee should be brought in to regulate not only MBBS/MD/DNB but also to to bring unified courses so as not to have various parallel medical courses.

    POLITICIANS SHOULDN\’T listen to the BABUS THE BUREAUCRATES, they are more likely to MISGUIDE AND MISLEAD And put them in to Trouble. Better to take opinion from the PROFESSIONALS , TECHNOCRATS. The BABAUS are the leftover garbage of the BLOODY BRITISH RAJ. \”BABU MUKTH BHARATH\” IS MORE IMPORTANT FOR CLEAN , CORRUPT FREE ADMINISTRATION . I think POLITICIANS / lawmakers are much more concerned about the welfare of the public than the HIGHHEADED SENSELESS and stupid and arrogant BABUS. Because of them our country is lagging behind in every aspect . It is right to time ban these civil servants . There job is nothing more than cut , print and paste from those dusty and dirty books laying in the cupboard of dungeon rooms. We the INDIANS being the masters in information technology SHOULD STOP use of cevilservents , they are nothing but white elephants. Criminal WASTE OF HARD-EARNED MONEY of the taxpayers , thattoo for promoting corrupt practices. THE MAHARASHTRA C M IS A DECENT MAN , SHOULD BE WISE ENOUGH TO AVOID TAKING WRONG DECISIONS FROM THE BABUS.

  4. When DNB runs in Govt med colleges and hospitals DNB exam must be like MD/ MS but not like present DNB. Even results must be on par with MD/MS but not only 10%. ( NBE say DNB result is around 30 to 40% but it includes repeaters. As such fresh Bach result hardly cross 10%).

  5. Basic question is WHY DNB in medical colleges which are meant for MD,MS. Why to produce——–?

  6. If knowledge and skills acquired by students improve , result will automatically improve

  7. Exams conducted by medical colleges and same by nbe are nt comparable at all.
    Beside work n knowledge other things also matter
    Thr is more fair play in dnb exam as compared to md/ms

  8. Dear,on the one side you are appreciating DNB and condemning MD MS and on the other side wants parity with MD MS. Self contradictory stand !

  9. Nobody wants to be called as MD/MS..
    MRCP/DNB or MD..Naam main kuch Nai rakha ..the problem arised when mci moulded rules against the notificationsand cluases of equivalence to work against DNBs..which was contrary to govt of India and health ministry stand…jst because mci has somr authority, it doesnt make them credible enough..u know about ghost faculties during inspections..dont you know about Jr/sr/ap recruitments temporarily for few days during inspections…
    .this issue of nomenclature came up when DNB doctors actually started facing discriminations in teaching institutes….
    so its about parity in opportunities not nomenclature. And that too when we despite being able to challenge our friends in clinics/knowledge and patient care.u can call me Dnb or just a physician least give me a teaching post I deserve..I can show u later in due course about what I know and what I have studied .

    Proposal is good and all the involved parties shall try to make it happen so that equality can be brought between md/ms vs DNB

  11. Dear, Why not stop this back door entry. Then no question of equality/ inequality, who is superior, whose system of exam. is better . No one has to run from pillar to post for equillancy, no begging from politicians. All will be MD MS.

    MCI is doing excellent job now, all with head .. no kneeling to political mindlessness or pocket warming from medical indrustralist. Keep it up time to shine again.

  13. Coming from a guy who is ready to justify reservations in medical system..who enjoys reservations in promotions.. But gibing respect to a hard working Dnb seems to be derogatory to him..listen doctor ..there are many deserving students who fall out just because people like you get free run into medical colleges. So mci isn\’t doing a very nice job..the system and mci are corrupt to the cores and every body including you know it very well..but then your hypocrisy makes you support mci

  14. Dear, You are right but If there is a pain in one part of body and we are bearing it ,it doesn\’t mean we should start giving pain to other parts of our body. Moreover that is constitutional issue.

  15. Thats exactly what my message meant …reservation is a pain..yes indeed all of us are suffering..but equating this pain of reservations to giving parity to DNBs is where the whole hypocricy lies.
    That\’s why I want this MCI to go brother..
    DNB gets scrutinised at every level..yet giving parity is considered a pain..private mci inspected institutes bribe officials, recruit one day staff/doctors/faculties pay them bugs and ends up approving md ms seats…arent u aware of it?ofcourse you are!! I never heard any opposition to such practices by sane minds lke yours..guess wht happens to those approved seats..a rich guy buys it in crores and after 3 years of his residency,comes out and speaks abt teaching standards in medical colleges and advocates barring Dnb from teaching posts…its not about pain or acceptance..its about hypocricy.. Not mentioning just on your part, but on the whole fraternity practicing..

  16. Wah..coming From a person who favors reservations but equivalence to dnb seems to hurt his stature..what do you hate DNB so much. Undeserving candidates getting MD MS seats because of reservations is acceptable to you but desering cdidate clearing toughest exams getting due respect hurts you.
