DNB Program Overview


DNB (Ophthalmology) is a residential post-graduate programme in ophthalmology encompassing both academic and clinical aspects of the discipline.

We accentuate morals, excellence and humanity while training residents to become good ophthalmologists with responsibility oriented towards the society. Our students are trained to manage patients in wide spectrum of eye diseases. A good hands on training in cataract surgery is the hallmark of the PG training program. Throughout the residency period they will be guided on their thesis projects also.

Each resident will get to do around 1000 surgeries during their PG period. Our residents are also trained in sub specialities according to their thesis topic. This will encourage them to do fellowship in that speciality and improve their skills. We have fully equipped library with all latest books and National and International journals. Regular academic classes and journal club are conducted in a systematic manner. Residents are encouraged to regularly participate in CME programs as well as conferences of TNOA and AIOS.

Classes will be conducted on a regular basis with case presentations at least once a week, didactic lectures thrice a week and Journal Club presentations every week. Faculties of National and International fame from India and Outside India will be engaged for the benefit of postgraduates. They will undergo written examination on every month following the discussion on specific topics. NBE conducts the annual appraisal for all the candidates (Theory & Practical) as per NBE Guidelines.

As Mahathma Eye Hospital is fully equipped with diagnostic equipments, PGs here will be given free hand in using those equipments and sharpen their diagnostic skills as well.

Each candidate is given a logbook for recording interesting clinical cases they’ve seen, discussed, presented, surgeries and minor procedures that were performed. Proper maintenance of log books is a must for all candidates. Appraisal of log book and attendance is carried out every 3 months.

Apply through centralized counselling conducted by National Board of Examination. Please go through the information bulletin of National board of Examination website. (www.natboard.edu.in)
