SDMH organised a friendly get-together of SDMH DNB alumni on 28-29th September 2013. This, for us, was certainly the first of its kind. DNB students are, very often, the forgotten heroes of healthcare organizations, hospitals etc. We are all aware of the fact that the DNB examination requires rigour, discipline, dedication, commitment and hard work. Too often, DNBs are forgotten once they have qualified. The Secretary, S.D. Trust thinks it is important for all DNB students to retain some bond, some connection and some links with the parent hospital for this is where they spent some of their most creative years, and this is where they formed friendships and affiliations. The last DNB week-end, for us, was a simple but meaningful endeavour to revive those links, and to renew those friendships. All SDMH DNB candidates were invited to a get-together at Hotel Clark, Jaipur where we had a weekend of academic sessions, a cultural evening, a social get-together and, basically, recreate an atmosphere where friendship and nostalgia rule. Not just the DNB Alumini or present DNB students but also the senior consultants of SDMH enjoyed and cherished the beautiful weekend with their students.
