In a bid to address the shortage of medical faculty in the country, the board has also approved a proposal to relax norms for DNB (Diplomate of National Board) degree holders to teach in hospitals like PGI, AIIMS, and other state medical colleges.

DNB doctors, who get their training at private hospitals which do not have medical colleges, obtain their postgraduate qualifications from the National Board of Examination (NBE).

As per the proposal, DNB degree holders working in specialties with over 100 beds and super-specialties private hospitals will be eligible for faculty positions on completion of one additional year as senior residency at any MCI-recognised institution.
