  9. Hi Shincy,

    I am having three years of experience India but now i have a gap of 2 years and 2 months. I approached dha regarding how to get to write the exam and they asked me to do a clinical training in any dha hospitals or clinics for four months. So now i am doing a observeship in one of the dha clinics. Do you think this will help me get to be eligible for the dha exam.

  10. hI,
