DNB @ Apollo Hyderabad

What is NBE?

National Board of Examination was established by the Government of India, Ministry of Health and Family welfare, in 1975, and later declared an independent autonomous organization in 1982, with the primary objective of setting up a standard for post graduate examinations in medical sciences in the country, considering the variation in the level of proficiency and standards of other postgraduate and postdoctoral examinations in India.

The National Board of Examinations foresees an increase in quality manpower requirements relating to surgical and medical specialties. It aspires to bring higher medical education and training within the reach of all medical graduates.

Objectives of NBE?
