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.

    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.

  2. 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%).

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

  4. 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

    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

    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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.
