We are delighted to welcome aspiring and ambitious post graduate candidates to the Kauvery Diplomate National Board (DNB) Program under the auspices of National Board of Examinations(NBE). The National Board of Examinations is an autonomous body under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, established in 1975 at New Delhi to standardize postgraduate medical education and examination in India.

Kauvery Hospitals strongly believe in the life-changing experience gained through Academics- the power of teaching, training and research, under careful and committed guidance-, to inspire aspiring clinicians to become the best possible versions of themselves.

Kauvery Hospitals shall train you to acquire the necessary skills to serve patients with kindness, compassion, knowledge, skills, competence and confidence.

Kauvery Hospital offers a host of DNB courses across a wide spectrum of medical specialties to enable and empower young, keen and shrewd clinical minds to expand their horizon and pursue their aspirations with courage and conviction.

Kauvery DNB program is championed by one of the finest clinical minds in the nation, Dr.Venkita S Suresh, a stalwart in global health and a cardiologist with over 40 years of experience in stewarding academic, clinical and management programs and outcomes in hospitals in several countries- India, Oman, UAE, Haiti, British Virgin Islands, St Helena, DR Congo, Nigeria and Papua New Guinea. A member of the National Academy of Medical Sciences (MNAMS), he has been associated with mentoring DNB programs in India ever since MNAMS became DNB in the Eighties.

Kauvery's DNB program is unique in that it engages the aspirants immediately into a" total immersion" into clinical practice, guiding them to acquire skills and confidence every day of their lives. Teaching and training go seamlessly, hand by hand, along with acquiring an insight into clinical research.

Kauvery DNB program believes that what sets apart a post graduate from the undergraduate is the decision and determination to become responsible and accountable for the quality of patient care and its outcomes

Kauvery's DNB courses, in several clinical disciplines, are conducted at our hospitals in Chennai, Trichy, Salem and Hosur by stalwarts in the respective fields. HoDs and their colleagues, who are the teaching faculty, have extensive clinical experience in treating some of the most complicated cases and in pioneering the state's and the nation's most complex interventions/surgeries.
