DNB IMPORTANT OPINION

REGARDING DNB IN INDIA

  1. Don’t choose corporate hospitals anywhere in the country.
  2. Govt hospitals and railways don’t provide any hostel or accommodation facilities even after payment of your accommodation fees.
  3. Hands on is excellent only in the 5 govt hospitals running in Delhi and the 2 trust hospitals in andhra Pradesh
  4. Most of the trust hospitals have only 1 OT day per Pg student. So you hardly get surgical hands on.
  5. Opd census of almost all the small hospital with 200 to 450 beds have low count(only 30 patients in a day) , no trauma or emergency cases.
  6. Don’t opt for any district hospital since they don’t handle the high risk cases and they refer it to corporates or govt medical colleges. And plus there is 3 years service bond after dnb in district hospitals.
  7. Hospitals in Maharashtra generally don’t have good academics, you’ll have to self study and rely on hear and say.
  8. Nobody from the faculty is going to guide you in thesis presentation.
  9. Only 5 to 10 hospitals conduct regular assessments of the pg students.
  10. Many students have also told they scrub in every OT but they work as helper and camera man for lap surgeries.
  11. Academics is near to zero.
  12. Even if you have a good hands-on, you’ll suffer a lot in your exams because you wont get time to study, or attend any conferences.
  13. There is no regulatory authority in the hospital which keeps you informed about the thesis, exam dates and deadlines.
  14. Many rules have been violated by the hospitals, including stipend being paid 10000 rupees lesser than what needs to be paid.
  15. Some dnb hospitals have been shut down due to lack of teaching consultants, you can read the recent news online.
  16. Some hospitals even threatened the dnb students against filing complaints with the nbe.
  17. Many students dropped out of surgery dnb every year (almost 127 to 140 vacant seats) are carried forward to the next session. The reason being they didn’t get good hands-on. And were only made to run here and there for pre-op assessments and clerical duties.
  18. You’ll always be at the mercy of your consultants, if they’re good then you may have a slight chance of learning things, or else you’ll be regretting your choice of hospital for the next three years.

ALL THE BEST CHOOSE WISELY .
