DM /M.Ch Courses Allowed After MD /MS

After a lot of hard work to clear PG medical entrance exams, students have to face another hurdle after getting a good rank. That hurdle is to choose a good PG speciality branch. Nowadays after doing MD/MS, it has become almost a necessity to do DM/M.Ch as PG seats are increasing every year and so is the competition.

I am enlisting here the MD/MS courses by doing which the students could get into the respective DM/M.Ch courses.

Different States and institutes have different criteria on which super-speciality courses can be done by doing which MD/MS courses. 90% of these criteria are same in all institutes or states so students have to manually check their respective states of allowed super-speciality courses.

More important than State and Institute rules are MCI Regulations. It mentions all details of all DM/ M. Ch courses and prerequisite MD/ MD courses for a candidate to be eligible for super specialty courses.

Following are MD courses which are the prerequisite for DM courses according to MCI PG Medical Regulation 2000
