Websites for aspiring PG doctors

A senior surgeon working in a Kerala Government hospital has designed two websites for doctors preparing for MD and MS entrance exam and PG students writing MS, DNB and MRCS examinations in general surgery.

Www.Pgmedicalentrance.Org has been specially designed for enriching knowledge of medical graduates preparing for MD and MS entrance exam, Dr R C Thampan, Head of Department of Surgery, Government General Hospital (beach), Kozhikode said.

The online training module has updated details of relevant subjects and answers to more than 25,000 multiple-choice questions, he told PTI.

Anyone having minimum computer knowledge could access the user friendly site, which carries the entrance exam question papers along with answers of the past seven years, to update one's knowledge and gain valuable tips on preparing for the exam, the 54-year-old surgeon, hailing from Kannur, said.

The other site, Www.Msdnbsurgreview.Org, has been designed to benefit the postgraduate students preparing for MS and DNB examinations in general surgery, he said.

The site has study materials in 20 subjects needed to pass theory and clinical examinations and contains detailed and updated information on long and short cases, specimen, x-rays, barium pictures, CT scan, MRI and surgery intruments, he said.

The site that went online in 2006 had been designed after compiling valuable inputs from a panel of eminent doctors from Kerala, Doctor Thampan said.

It has registered several hits with professionals including those from Sri Lanka and the Middle East accessing the site over the last two years, he said.

"As medical students in the late '70's we did not have a clear cut idea as how to go about with the module for the post graduate degree exams.As a medical practioner I realised that many aspiring students were groping in the dark to face the all important exam and in matters of presenting their case study materials," he said.

This motivated him to develop a website for the aspiring medical professionals.

The Doctor said he found time to update latest developents in the medicial field on his sites,at least once a week.

"The two sites have been developed after painstakingly gathering and synthesising knowledge and experience acquired during my over 25-year long service as medical practitioner to provide valuble tips and guidance to aspiring doctors ahead of their examinations," he said.
