Chennai, Oct 4 (UNI) The Centre is expected to create a unified board for post graduate medical examinations in the country, National Board of Examinations Chairman and President Diploma of National Board (DNB) Rajasekaran said today.

Creation of such a board, as recommended by an expert committee, would help gain recognition both in India and abroad, he said while inaugurating ''Kalpavriksha-2007'', a four-day national level continuing medical education for PG ophthalmologists, organised by Dr Agarwal Eye Hospital here.

This was needed as at present the certificate provided by the DNB was not recognised by some countries.

The expert committee headed by Dr Ranjit Roy had recommended to the Centre to set up an independent PG training board on the lines of the one existing in the US, Australia and the UK for issuing PG degrees.

The independent body should have statutory status to award degrees, which would be recognised across the world, he added.
