DNB Part 1

The National Board of Examination has decided to tie up with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (RCS ED) to award the prestigious MRCS degree to medicos appearing in the exam for a Diploma of the National Board in India.


At present, the Royal College offers a course in basic surgical skills, a threeday orientation course and a two-year MRCS for which students had to go to UK. Members of the RCS India chapter claimed that this would usher in a new era in the training of surgeons from the country. The tie-up, likely to commence with the DNB exams next October, would mean that students appearing for DNB would simultaneously get MRCS degrees, too.

Already, the four Royal Colleges of Surgeons have stopped offering FRCS. Coming close on the heels of the replacement of the old FRCS exam with the MRCS by all the royal colleges in UK, the programme would be another foray by the Edinburghbased college in its multipronged overseas activi-ties.

The RCS ED and the National Board are currently working out a structured training programme on standard practices for surgeons in India and England, informed Wilson S. Hendry of RCS ED on Monday. "The idea is to recognise medicos ap-pearing for the DNB exam, which by itself is a competent and advanced degree, equivalent of the MRCS," he said.

"Students sitting for DNB would thus get two degrees simultaneously, something like an MRCS-DNB," added Hendry. As MRCS was not recognised by the Indian government, the tie-up with the National Board would help the degree, recognised worldwide, as a standard training module. "Now, surgeons wanting to specialise further will have to undergo another four-year training after which they will get the FRCS degrees," said Hendry. Indian students would also be able to go for super-specialisation following postgraduation, not available till date.
