Hi, I am from kerala and i got allotted in the 2nd round of counselling for DNB ENT in Secundrabad and i if i rejects and continue for 3rd round will i get Paediatric or ENT in the 3rd round in kerala or some other near states?
Since you have not given us your rank in your NEET UG we will assume you have done fairly to be allotted a DNB ENT seat in the second round of counseling. With MD Pediatrics in the 3rd round will be difficult but there is slight chance in ENT. DNB may feel like you are doing a doing a lesser program but gathering knowledge is the same for both. Your keenness to learn will be rather defining in both, also find out if the college in Secundrabad has a high patient volume – this is most important when it comes to learning.
What MCI says about MS ENT : The purpose of MS ENT is to standardize Otorhinolaryngology teaching at Post Graduate level throughout the country so that it will benefit in achieving uniformity in undergraduate teaching as well and resultantly creating competent ENT Surgeons with appropriate expertise.
What MCI says about DNB ENT: Practice the specialty of Otorhinolaryngology ethically keeping in mind the requirement of the patient, his community and people at large. Demonstrate sufficient understanding of basic sciences related to Otorhinolaryngology and be able to integrate such knowledge in his Clinical practice. Diagnose and manage majority of conditions in Otorhinolaryngology
So MS is about treating and surgery and DNB is about treating only. Now if surgery is important for you then you need to take a chance, if not DNB and later think about MCh if needed.
NB – If you ever intend to take up teaching then MS or MD is needed.
