DNB in Emergency Medicine

DNB Emergency Medicine: Diplomate of National Board (DNB) is a medical qualification awarded by the National Board of Examinations (NBE). The DNB Emergency Medicine course is approved by the Government of India and is considered equivalent to the postgraduate and post-doctoral programs offered by the Medical Colleges, institute & hospital in India.

Duration of both MD & DNB courses is 3 years, run in both government and private set up with the similar quality standard of the host institute, similar academic activities, compulsory thesis work of 1-year duration under a qualified thesis guide with external review process (exposure to research methodology), and academic activities (library and journal facility, presentation in national and international conferences, research article publication, training program, workshop, and CME).

Clinical activity in both the courses is similar to emergency case handling, surgical exposure, clinical case discussion, case exposure, availability of equipment and diagnostic tool, patient load to be handled, duty hour, night duty, leave entitled including maternity leave and other facilities. Regarding the exit examination, in the MD course, theory and practical examinations are conducted in the host institute.

In practical examination, both internal (high chance of bias in the evaluation process) and external examiners are present. Furthermore, passing the theory examination is not an essential criterion of eligibility to appear in the practical examination.

While DNB exit examination is an unbiased, extremely tough evaluation process both in theory and practical (conducted in the different centers without the presence of an internal examiner). Passing theory examination is an essential criterion to appear in practical examination.
