A detailed look at the Teachers Eligibility Criteria 1998 published by the Medical Council of India (MCI) last year reveals a massive discrimination against doctors who have gained their DNB-EM from non-MCI recognised institutes. Majority of the DNB seats in all specialties, including EM, are in large private and not-for-profit hospitals which do not come under the purview of MCI. However the National Board of Examinations (NBE) which governs the DNB programs, follows the same procedures for inspection and assessment for both MCI and non-MCI recognised institutes.

The Teachers Eligibility Criteria is a very cryptic and confusing document. Hence MCI released a FAQ recently regarding this which clarifies their stand. Have a look at it. It is very obvious that the MCI has divided the DNB-EM qualified doctors into two distinct groups, those who are directly eligible for academic positions, and those who need to work for atleast 3-4 years in a MCI recognised institute before they are eligible. This additional requirement of MCI recognised experience has further complicated the situation in some states like Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. DNB candidates from these states, after their 3 year training period, need to complete 1 year of compulsory rural service before they receive their DNB qualification.

This issue, which is a clear setback for both the development of EM in India, and the individual careers of these doctors, is currently being haggled in the offices of NBE and MCI. The Supreme Court which recently received this grievance, quickly dismissed the writ petition (See Petition) .
