TMC to offer super-speciality courses

Thoothukudi Medical College (TMC) will be introducing super-speciality courses for the first time from August.

Dean S. Balasubramanian said Doctorate of Medicine would be available in Medical Gastroenterology and Neurology, with one and two seats respectively.

Proposals had been sent for M.S. Orthopaedics with 11 seats, and M.S. ENT with five seats, and these courses were likely to be introduced next year.

Prospective students must qualify through the NEET for super-speciality courses after completion of MD.
