DNB = MD/MS? No Way!

The union health ministry has approved Medical Council of India‘s recommendation that bars Diplomate of National Board (DNB) degree-holders from teaching in medical colleges if they do not have the one-year additional teaching experience to make them on a par with MD/MS candidates.

According to the new rule, DNB degree-holders, who have passed out from private or non-MCI recognised medical colleges, are required to undergo an additional year of senior residency in a teaching medical institution.

The directive bars around 3,000 DNB degree-holders, who have taught for several years as faculty members. It also disqualifies another 3,000-odd doctors, who are pursuing senior residency from teaching. National Board of Examination (NBE) has dubbed the move “discriminatory”.
