Eligibility Criteria

Selection Process

The selection of candidates for Higher Specialty courses (except 6 year M.Ch. Neurosurgery) will be from NEET-SS 2017 qualified applicants and will be according to the directives of the CMC Vellore Council. Selection of candidates for the 6 year M.Ch. Neurosurgery course will be from the NEET–PG 2017 qualified applicants.

Training in a higher specialty is the last career choice that a doctor makes. Academic proficiency in the qualifying subject, as ascertained by NEET-SS exam, is of utmost importance. While the NEET-SS efficiently tests academic proficiency in the qualifying subject, it is of equal importance for the candidate to be found suitable for the specialty applied for. Hence assessment for compatibility, interest, possession of appropriate skills and knowledge about the specialty applied for is essential. It is for this reason that candidates can apply for only one specialty which shows their sustained interest in that higher specialty. It is only when these factors are found suitable that adequate justice would be done to the patients seeking and expecting high quality care from a super specialist.

Hence, while only the NEET-SS would make candidates eligible for admission to the Super Specialty course, a clinical and practical assessment to ensure suitability of the candidate to align with our mission of service and high levels of overall proficiency and patient care, will be conducted after the candidate clears the NEET-SS exam. Fifty percent of the seats in each course are reserved for sponsored candidates, provided they fulfil other criteria for eligibility for admission. However, more than 50% of the available seats may be allotted to sponsored candidates based on their ranking in the selection list. The wait list is based on ranking in the selection list. The first sponsored candidate on the waiting list will ordinarily fill vacancies arising by sponsored candidates not accepting a seat to make up 50% reservation for sponsored candidates. In the event that more than 50% of the seats in any course are filled by sponsored candidates and one of the sponsored candidates does not accept the seat, it will be offered to the next candidate on the wait list by rank irrespective of whether he or she is sponsored or open. No admission will usually be made after 16th August 2017.
