DM /M.Ch Courses Allowed After MD /MS

NEET PG 2017 admission management/ NRI quota

DM M Ch after MD MS

 

After a lot of hard work to clear PG medical entrance exams, students have to face another hurdle after getting a good rank. That hurdle is to choose a good PG speciality branch. Nowadays after doing MD/MS, it has become almost a necessity to do DM/M.Ch as PG seats are increasing every year and so is the competition.

I am enlisting here MD/MS courses here doing which students could get into DM/M.Ch courses.

Different States and institutes have different criteria on which super-speciality courses can be done by doing which MD/MS courses. 90% of these criteria are same in all institutes or states so students have to manually check their respective states  of allowed super-speciality courses.

More important than State and Institute rules are MCI Regulations. It mentions all details of all DM/ M. Ch courses and prerequisite MD/ MD courses for a candidate to be eligible for super specialty courses.

Following are MD courses which are prerequisite for DM courses according to MCI PG Medical Regulation 2000 (click here for pdf).

MCI Rule: D.M. (DOCTOR OF MEDICINE) for which candidates must possess recognised degree of M.D. (or its equivalent recognised degree) in the subject

Data about AIIMS Superspeciality eligibility has been updated from Eligibility in AIIMS January 2015 session prospectus of Post-Graduate & Post-Doctoral Course [DM/M.Ch/Fellowship Programme/MD (Hospital Administration)

One specific thing I would like to point out from AIIMS-DM /MCh / MHA / Ph.D. July 2015 Prospectus is this statement “A Candidate must possess a degree in MD/MS or DNB from a University recognized by the MCI in the respective discipline as mentioned hereunder”. So according to this, even DNB candidates are eligible for AIIMS-DM /MCh courses.

DM/ M.Ch in Maharashtra

M.Ch. Surgical OncologyMS (Surgery) / MS (ENT) / MS (Ortho) / MD (Ob. & Gy.)

As seen in above tables there a few differences in required qualifications for AIIMS and Maharashtra Super-Speciality courses. I have edited above tables with latest data from Maharashtra MHSSET 2016 Information Brochure. M.Ch. Surgical Oncology is no longer mentioned in MHSSET 2016 information brochure. The probable reason for this could be no more seats of that specialty being offered by any institute in Maharashtra.

  • In AIIMS MD (Respiratory Medicine) are not allowed to do DM Cardiology.
  • In AIIMS MD (Biochemistry) are not allowed to do DM Endocrinology.
  • In AIIMS MD (Radiotherapy) are not allowed to do DM Medical Oncology.
  • In AIIMS MS (Ortho) / MD (Ob. & Gy.) are not allowed to do M.Ch Surgical Oncology.
  • In AIIMS MD (Biochemistry)/ MD (Pathology) are not allowed to do DM Clinical Haematology.

So candidates are advised to choose their Speciality wisely.

I am updating this article to include the list of Super Specialty Programmes with Eligible Qualification for Diplomate National Board (DNB) Super Specialty (SS) courses as mentioned in Information Bulletin for Diplomate of National Board Centralized Entrance Test – Super Specialty 2016 (DNB CETSS 2016).

One of the common things asked on this article has been whether a student who has already pursued a PG medical course be allowed to go for another PG medical course or not? I had filed an RTI for the same question and along with me a user of this website Dr. Saumya Singh had also filed an RTI. The reply got by him is as follows:

Registration Number MEDCI/R/2015/60655
Name: Saumya Singh
Date of Filing: 11/12/2015
Request filed with Medical Council of India
Status: REQUEST DISPOSED OF as on 08/01/2016
Reply:‐ The Postgraduate Medical Education Regulations, 2000 are silent regarding pursuance of the second PG
degree. Thus, the PIO is of the view that you are entitled to pursue PG degree in another subject and once you
obtain such recognized medical qualification and get your additional qualification registered you may practice
as a Specialist in that subject.

You can go to our forum here for further discussion.

            Community medicine people cannot do DM infectious disease.

      That way you can even do MD of any specialty by cracking AIPGMEE or any state level exam. There is no such bar that you can’t do MD/ MS after doing PG from a specialty.

    • Kalpana, You have multiple options with Microbiology in India and Abroad , it depends on what you love to do ,
      you can also write cet again and choose a different specialization as Dr Kohli said.

      Regarding Microbiology, You have multiple choices to work at a job or setup a business or superspecialize.
      Immunology is one field which you can pursue DM here.

      By work or job I mean, you are eligible to be a Fellow after MD Microbiology and Pursue Fellowship .

      Apart from that, there are multiple options if you are open for abroad :
      Clinical immunology, haematology, Post Doctoral Fellowship in Neuroinfection,
      Microbiology Fellowship Program usa – doctoral and post doctoral , Make google searches
      on these terms and you can get to see different options,

      Study material for DM entrance exams are same as that of PG medical entrance exams and only difference being that DM entrance exams are comparatively easier to crack as they have difficulty level lower than MD exams. Few other reasons are also involved like residents do not get enough time to study and many people do not even give these exams.
      Now coming to branches, nowadays there is competition in everything. Medical Oncology is something which has high future prospects as oncology is something which is far from saturated when it comes to treatment or even development of new drugs for that matter.

          Yes you have to study all the UG subjects just like preparation for AIPGMEE but main weightage is of the subject of your specialty. For example in MH-SSET 100 marks weightage is for all subjects included for MBBS course and 50 marks are for respective specialties like Medicine, Paediatrics, Surgery, Pathology, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Resp. Medicine and Anesthesia. So a Pharmacologist will get 50 marks questions from Pharmacology subject and 100 marks from all the subjects included for MBBS course.

      If you are interested in Pathology then DCP should be your option. Don’t think too much about passing rate of DNB right now. It is better to wait for couple of years to pass the subject which you like rather than doing something which you don’t like. After DCP you can get SR posts in Govt. hospitals or you can open your own patho lab if you are willing to invest. Also there are few opportunities in which DCP people also get hired in patho labs if they have enough experience.

      Psychiatry is one the few branches in which along with the practice of the speciality i.e. psychiatry in this case you also have to do General practice to earn good money, Unless you become a very good and famous psychiatrist. Still in India people count going to a psychiatrist as a taboo.
      I don’t know about the salaries in private hospitals.

      Doctor of Medicine (DM) (Geriatric Mental Health) at ‘King George Medical University’, Lucknow (http://www.kgmu.org/dept_geriatric.php) and DM (Child and Adolescent Psychiatry) at ‘National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences’ (NIMHANS), Bangalore (http://www.nimhans.kar.nic.in/cap/default.htm) for candidates of MD/DNB psychiatry. Other awaiting super-specialty psychiatry course is DM (Addiction Medicine) at ‘National Drug Dependence Treatment Centre’ of ‘All India Institute of Medical Sciences’, New Delhi and ‘Centre for Addiction Medicine’, NIMHANS, Bangalore.

      Books to read for superspeciality entrance exams are same as that of PG medical entrance exams. You can find all the lists of recommended books in the article here.

    2. What is the acceptable maximum age to appear in DM/DNB subspeciality entrance exam?
    3. Does the DNB subspecialty applicant needs to have domicile for that particular state where the “applied for” hospital is located?

      DM in Medical Genetics can be done after any MD course, so MD Anatomy person can do it. I have not heard of any fellowship courses after MD Anatomy.

      Most of the people do fellowships after doing MS Orthopedics. Earning varies, I have seen starting package of poeple from Rs. 50000 and it increases as your experience grows. After this sky is the limit depending on your skills.

      • What are the types of fellowships?

        • Also how much is the earning per surgery? Is it combined with the salary or is the doctor’s fee per salary given separately?

          • Doctor’s fee per surgery i mean

          • Profile photo of Dr. Paresh Koli

            A doctor can either be salaried or can be paid depending on the number of patients seen or operated. It all depends on the hospital/ clinic you are tieing up with. Earning per surgery can go as low as Rs. 2000/ surgery as far as I have heard. As there is too much competition in the healthcare sector nowadays, some surgeons are ready to do surgeries for very less. Upper limit can go in lakhs depending on the type of surgery, hospital and your skills.

  117. Sir , i wanted to know whether i can do degree after diploma Anaesthesiology ? Can we re-appear in Aipg exams after finishing diploma and take up a degree seat in other speciality like surgery or medicine ?

          All the DM courses allowed after MD Pulmonology have been mentioned here. I don’t know about Andhra but if it has a separate entrance exam for DM courses you can have a look at its information brochure to know which courses are allowed after which MD.
          Regarding taking Medicine, if you are opening your own clinic then I think you can take Pulmonary medicine and then do the practice. Taking seat or not depends on your liking. If you are comfortable with Pulmonary medicine then take it, and if you are confident that you can crack the exam again and want MD medicine only then wait.

          You can do the same via RTI online website. But I don’t think NBE comes under RTI. Maybe you can file an RTI directly to MCI or Ministry of Health, but I am doubtful whether that will be helpful.

      Sorry, I do not have a list of institutes allowing MCh after ENT.
      Preparation is similar to PG entrance exams with more focus on the subject of the speciality.
