DNB has long been accepted as equal to MD/MS/DM/MCh, so whats new about this government order dated 1st june 2006......
Read on all those who aspire to do DNB/students who have finished DNB/institutions(recruiting agencies) employing MD/DNB for teaching/non-teaching posts.
After passing DNB, a candidate wishing to apply for a teaching post is now treated on par with any other MD/MS/DM/MCh passed candidate.
Previously if a DNB passed candidate wished to apply for a teaching post, then he/she had to undergo additional 1/2 year post as a tutor/demonstrator/registrar in a recognised medical college imparting undergratuate/post-gratuate training to be considered for the post of lecturer.
For all those who have been rejected for the teaching posts, you could download the government order from http://www.natboard.nic.in/
and produce it during interviews in case the the institution/recruting agency refuses to treat your qualification as equal to MD/MS/DM/MCh as the case may be.
