Dr Sunil Pawar talks about Anaesthesia & Hindu rao hospital,Delhi


Hindu rao hospital ,New delhi  is a  450-bed hospital, which is run by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation, sees 29,000 patients a month and houses a medical college with 50 students. Delhi's first municipal-run medical college at the Bara Hindu Rao Hospital here has been given approval by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare to start its second batch for the academic session 2014-15 only recently, but it has existed for a very long time in Delhi.

Talking of anaesthesia per say , the department has a total of 8 consultants who are skilled professionals in their field. Regular work timings are 9am to 4pm. I am a first year resident so I get emergency duty once in 5-6 days,3pm- 9am. Next day you get off. Schedule will be different from second year.

There is a lot of exposure to anaesthesia during general surgery cases especially Chloe cysts cronies and Hernioplasties, some urosurgical procedures, all common Gyne and Ortho surgeries. We also get exposure to Anesthesia in ENT and Dental surgeries. There is No Neurosurgery or Cardiac surgery exposure in Hindu Rao, but we'll have 2 months posting in Safdarjang Hospital in Final year for that. Currently my third year seniors are posted in Safdarjung for the same.

We usually give GA, Spinal and Epidurals anesthesia , We also put Central Venous lines. We don't get to give Peripheral nerve blocks frequently.


For academics we have one or two classes per week in the form of power point presentations. These are usually presented by PG students and there is a moderator for each class. We have case presentations too occasionally.

Pass rate – not much idea but my seniors say its good. Last year 100% passing for Primary and Secondary DNB.

Accomodation – not available.

Stipend – 71k ,73k,75k in respective years.

My rank was(jan session) – 3918(OBC seat )  , general category seat went at around 2200 rank.

Why I chose Hindu rao hospital ?

  1. I wanted to be in medical college
  2. I wanted a Government/trust run institute
  3. After medicine, my preference was Anesthesia 

Other departments – DNB dermatology is good, seat went at around 600 rank in jan session
