NIMHANS examination is on 24th of June 2012. This is the most prestigious institute in India for Neurosurgery, Neurology and Psychiatry. This particular entrance in June provides opportunity to get in to 5 year Mch Neurosurgery or 5 year DM Neurology course. Integrated 5 year DM Neurology is only available in NIMHANS. Though the seats are very less, the competition is tremendously fierce this year. The most important reason being it is being conducted in locations outside Bangalore. This is an online examination. So this year many students will get chance to write this exam. All the very best to them. And may the best one gets.
Many repeated questions, many ineligible examinees make this AIIMS PG for MD/MS/Mch(6 years) difficult ever.
What I do not understand is why AIIMS does not take any action on bogus examinees. Every year thousands of 3rd year, 4th year and final year students apply giving false information. But no action is taken against any of them. This examination is strictly for doctors who are doing their internship or who have completed it. Anybody other than this is violating the rules.
These violators who are very good students are taking this risk, because they want to get PG in the very first chance. And this examination will serve as a practice paper.
Now this gives a sense of disregard towards rules to the new would be doctors and the price is borne by the nation to which these small miscreants flood.
Absence from duty, misbehavior towards poor patients and private practicing while drawing NPA (Non Practicing Allowance) are just the result of greed and sense of disrespect towards law and rules. It is needless to say that if rules should be enforced, irregularity in future services will be curbed to a lot of extent.
As the readers of this blog know that I am yet to get into PG so this article might get some serious backlashing from the doctor community of India. But then hey, this is my blog
