Dr.Akansha Goel Talks about OBG and Kamla nehru memorial hospital,Allahabad

The Hospital has evolved into a multidisciplinary tertiary care center with moderate facilities. Specific emphasis is laid on Reproductive Health detection, treatment & research in Cancer. The Hospital is today equipped with 380 beds catering to different disciplines. Of these 214 are basically free beds for the poor and needy. The Hospital is affiliated with Motilal Nehru Medical College, Allahabad for teaching in Obstetrics and Gynaecology since 1964. The MBBS (undergraduate) and M.S. (postgraduate residents) students are given demonstrations on Modern Radiotherapy and diagnostic facilities available in the Hospital. The following training programmes are taken up in our Hospital:

  1. Diploma of the National Board of Examinations in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Radiotherapy
  2. Dip. G.O. in Obstetrics and Gynaecology
  3. D.Ch. in Paediatrics
  4. M.S. (Obstetrics and Gynaecology)
  5. M.B.B.S. Students on various clinical aspects in Oncology.

Since it is attached to a medical college patient load and work exposure is good. Fixed working hours form 7am to 2pm and at the max you get free by 3 pm usually. If you have emergency duty then you have to work for 36hour continuously followed by a holiday. You get a free surgical hand and there are no compulsions at all. I have done all minor procedures like MTP, DNC, Biopsies etc on my own. I have assisted LSCS and Hysterectomies right from day 1. You start getting free hand by 10 months into the course and it usually starts with Cesarean section. When you leave the place you become competent to do Hysterectomies both abdominal and vaginal.

Academics are very good and classes are held on Monday,Wednesday and Friday. They are very strict about classes and you are made to study. Passing rate is almost 100% . Both the final years in OBG passed.

Another advantage of working/doing DNB here is that it’s a RCC( Regional Cancer Centre), an apex institute for cancer treatment so we get to see a lot of gynec oncology cases which are rare even in a medical college.The radiotherapy department is equipped with the latest machines and is overall good in academics,exposure and pass rate.
