Seniors literally make you do it. Learning and Working is amazing here.

Any other departments at your institution good for DNB??

Paediatrics and Medicine are considered very good here. Both have two seats each. There is also one seat for Surgery which is also considered good.

Stipend and accommodation details

Accomodation is available in the campus. Hostel rooms are also spacious and good. There is a mess and a 24 hour open canteen. Stipend is 50,000.

Any other info you would like to give? 

Earlier i was also confused like everyone else what to take...but Holy Family is considered a renowned hospital especially in obs and gyane and paediatrics. There is huge load in Medicine and Surgery too. Earlier there were two seats for Primary and two for secondary DNB in obs & gynae but this year seats have increased to four in each them.

This hospital is a good option to learn and most importantly to pass DNB as here everyone is very much work oriented and academics are excellent.

Why did you chose this hospital?

I choose this hospital because-

1. Holy family is said to be a old and reputed hospital with good patient load. Obs & Gynae is considered very good for a DNB candidate

2.I wanted a hospital with good academics as DNB need serious studies.

3.I wanted a hospital near my home town, preferably Delhi and this seems a good option.

Note : 1 seat in Medicine is Vacant at Holy Family hospital, Delhi

If there are any discrepancies in the two blogs, please take in consideration that there is a time gap between the two, things might have changed and the most recent blog(i.e this one) should be considered more accurate.

This hospital is Now Certified for being good in OBG as it has received two good reviews from two residents of different years. You can take this hospital for OBG if it satisfies you.
