In a recent development, the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has taken steps to address the concerns of NEET PG aspirants following the cancellation of the examination. In an official press release, Dr. Anilkumar J Nayak, Honorary Secretary General of IMA, met with Dr. Abhijat Sheth, President of the National Board of Examinations (NBE), to highlight the challenges and anxieties faced by the aspirants.

NEET PG, a crucial examination for medical professionals pursuing postgraduate studies, was abruptly cancelled, impacting thousands of doctors who are either actively practicing or deeply engaged in rigorous preparatory courses. The cancellation not only disrupts their career plans but also affects patient care in medical facilities across the country.

"Dr. Anilkumar J Nayak, Honorary Secretary General, IMA met with Dr. Abhijat Sheth, President National Board of Examination regarding NEET PG and conveyed the difficulties, anxiety and expectations of the NEET PG aspirants. Unlike NEET UG aspirants those appearing for NEET PG examination are full-fledged doctors either at work in the hospitals or studying intensively under several coaching centres. The disruption in NEET PG not only affects the doctors and their services but also dislocates patient care at several centres," reads the official press release.

Recognizing the NBE’s reputation for conducting examinations with excellence and integrity, the IMA emphasised the urgent need for rescheduling NEET PG to minimise the disruption caused to medical services and patient care. Dr. Nayak conveyed IMA’s expectations for a prompt announcement of new examination dates, urging the NBE to uphold its standards of fairness and transparency.
