NBE Conducts DM Critical care Superspeciality exams and the examinations are now conducted online. Competition in DM critical care has been increasing since last few years and many students are now taking DM critical care medicine as their future. The Career options are also bright in view of congestion in other branches.
DM critical care is offered in many institutions throughout the Country if not all. Most students are not aware of what to prepare for DM Critical Care.
Experts from Critical care share their views and a student should know exactly what he / she needs to prepare for Critical care medicine.
Based on knowledge from experts from AIIMS , PGI , Government medical college students, Toppers and doctors who have qualified Critical care examinations , the general view point is that there is not much time for preparing DM exams available with candidates and they need a time friendly mechanism of study. One cannot cover all DM Syllabus with books and there are not many good books around.
DM Critical care aspirants are advised to prepare early and never lose touch with revision or online courses. We emphasize on being in touch and spiking your preparation at the term.
