The Diplomate National Board degree (DNB)

The DNB programme was initiated in Sir H N Reliance Foundation Hospital from the year 2017, 2 years after inauguration of the new hospital.

The National Board of Exams (NBE) is an educational board dealing with medical postgraduate teaching programme at a national level. It was introduced to aim at a unified teaching programme across the country, apart from the various state-restricted medical boards.

The Board has postgraduate programmes in Broad Specialties as well as Super-specialties. Our hospital has a combination of the two, across various faculties. Students from every corner of the country apply for the same, after qualifying through a common NEET exam, held annually. Based on their ranking, students opt for various institutes. Better the teaching programme, better the stipend and facilities, increase the chances of high ranking students seeking admission with the institute.

Students are a rich source for potential scientists, researchers and affiliations to the hospital. They have already spent considerable time to undergo structured education and training and have been groomed to our institute’s values, so form potential candidates to be absorbed into our system for growth and development of our departments and strengthen the clinical and academic pillars of our hospital.

Our Hospital is accredited and recognized for the following NBE courses–
  • 2/3 year courses in Broad specialties of Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Radiology, General Surgery, Orthopedics, Pathology and Anaesthesia
  • 3 year super specialty courses in Gastroenterology, Neurology, Cardiology, Critical Care, Oncosurgery, Cardiothoracic surgery
