Each one of you must have read the "Pre Test" (or "Pre Text") Series, where in Multiple Choice Questions are given along with Answers, References and Brief Explanations. Though there are Pretest Series for almost all subjects, the main drawback was that those questions were not oriented towards the Indian Exams like All India, AIIMS, JIPMER, CMC Vellore, PGI Chandigarh, UPSC and other State PG Exams.

Review (by a Paediatrician):
  • This is a comprehensive guide for paediatric university practical examination (For undergraduates and postgraduates). There are many books in the market that is useful for the exam in paediatrics. Scott's Pedia-TRICKS stands unique in that the author specifically says that it is “Written by the students, For the students”. After going through the book it is felt in every page. The book has maintained its style throughout.
  • This book includes detailed history taking of all the pediatric exam cases for undergraduates and postgraduates. This also gives an elaborate discussion of all cases, topic wise with the common questions asked during the presentation. Difficult topics like paraplegia in children, neurodegenerative disorder, and hepatosplenomegaly - approach are all written in a different and practical way.
  • There is a detailed discussion for developmental assessment and also a separate “Newborn” chapter including all the short cases and spotters of neonatology. Elaborate chapter on “Tuberculosis” whatever a student need from exam point of view is also available in this book.
  • The second part of book includes whatever needed for the orals which is, exam x-rays with detailed legends, vaccines related questions with answers, instruments and drugs kept in orals, description of procedures asked in the exam, questions asked in the nutrition/emergency viva voce, lists of nutrition items kept for orals and their nutritive values and also the separate chapter on social programmes.
  • The list of long, short cases and spotters (both for UGs/PGs) with list of pathology slides and specimens kept for pediatric exams is definitely of very useful for students.
  • The university theory question bank for PGs and UGs and separate chapter on psychological preparation for a pediatric clinical exam will be definitely appreciated by all the students
  • Above all the author has also declared that the profit from the book is meant for the benefit of poor children, which makes the purpose very noble than just commercial and business.
  • One of the main advantages of this book is that is packed with information, which has been presented in points, so that it can be easily remembered by both undergraduate/post graduate students and also the way of presentation is like somebody teaching with timely jokes makes one to read without boring and easy to remember.
  • This book is a good ready reference for postgraduates and undergraduates of pediatrics.

Nellai Medical College told to send proposals for DipNB
From the Hindu May 01,2005

The Directorate of Medical Education has asked heads of various departments of Tirunelveli Medical College (TVMC) to send proposals for admission to Diploma in National Board of Examination (DNB) at the college.

After holding discussions with Dr. Saraswathi, Dean, and the heads of various departments on Friday during her "routine visit" to the college and its hospital, Dr. Vijayalakshmi, Director of Medical Education (DME), asked the administration to send proposals to the directorate in this regard before May 7, highly placed TVMCH sources told The Hindu.



The initiative taken by the DME has brought cheers among the medical practitioners and the medical students here, as the DNB, equivalent to the post-graduate degree in medicine, ensure the availability of adequate number of qualified hands to be posted in the departments medical colleges which experience acute shortage of eligible staff.

"Since we can't find doctors in adequate numbers in the field of anatomy, the shortage of faculty members in the Department of Anatomy is huge. We had to face serious problems during the visit of a team from the Medical Council of India. The move by the DME would completely alleviate this problem as we can get more competent students with DNB if it is started here," a doctor at the TVMCH said.

Dr. Vijayalakshmi also asked the TVMCH administration to forward a proposal for highly advanced cancer treatment and its management, which would ensure the arrival of state-of-the-art equipment to the TVMCH.

The director asked the doctors here to send their requirements to upgrade the accident and trauma care sections with the assistance from the Union Government.

After reviewing the strength of the infrastructure facilities at the college and its hospital, Dr. Vijayalakshmi, invited the TVMCH administration to send a proposal for upgrading of the Nursing Training Centre there into a full-fledged Nursing College to produce highly skilled nurses.

Besides this, the TVMCH will also have a minimum of six paramedical courses such as X-ray technician, lab technician, Intensive Care Unit technician, ECG technician, etc., in the near future if the proposals to be forwarded by the college are approved.

After holding discussions with the heads of various departments in the hospital, Dr. Vijayalakshmi visited the college and inspected the construction of a new building in the hospital premises.

She asked the PWD engineers to complete the project at the earliest.

Eligibility clause for government doctors to join PG courses set aside
By Staff Reporter of "The Hindu" on the daily on 30/12/2004
http://www.hindu.com/2004/12/30/stories/2004123006830500.htm

CHENNAI, DEC. 29.
A clause making three years of uninterrupted service mandatory for Government doctors to join postgraduate medical courses under the in-service candidate quota, as against original two years, was set aside by the Madras High Court.

The matter relates to a batch of more than 45 writ appeals against a single judge order upholding Clause 23 of the Prospectus for PG medical examination 2004-05, following an October 2002 Government Order to that effect.

Earlier, Government doctors were required to put in a minimum of two years of "satisfactory, continuous and uninterrupted service" to be eligible to apply for postgraduate medical courses under the in-service candidate quota. They were required to serve in a primary health centre after the completion of the PG course as well.

However, the impugned order was pursuant to a policy decision to reduce the compulsory period of service to be rendered in rural areas from five years to three years, and simultaneously increase the minimum in-service eligibility criterion from two years to three years. When it was challenged, a single judge dismissed all the writ petitions and upheld the government decision.

Passing orders on the present batch of appeals, a Division Bench comprising Justice M. Karpagavinayagam and Justice S.R. Singharavelu said there was no nexus between the impugned decision and the object sought to be achieved by the Government.

The Bench referred to the Government's stand that as per the present decision the candidates need not go back to the primary health centres after completing the PG course and said, "if this argument is accepted rural people would be deprived of availing themselves of medical care by more qualified persons having expert knowledge in specialised subjects."

Stating that it was "not in public interest," the Judges said increasing the eligibility from two to three years would not achieve the object of rendering quality medical service to rural masses.

`Missing link'

They further said though the impugned decision was taken in October 2002 itself, instead of implementing it in the next year, it was given effect only for the academic year 2004-2005. "What is the reason for the introduction of this clause belatedly? There is no explanation." In view of this "missing link" the students' contention that the clause was introduced to deprive the present batch alone "has got to be countenanced. It cannot be said to be fair and equitable."

The judges also rejected the Medical Council of India's submission that the appellants that "no admission was permissible at this stage," and directed the authorities to admit the appellants in PG courses after informing them of their selection.
