Depends on the hospital you do it from, as of now, PMDC requires a 1 year experience certificate and that is it. Their perquisites have been on paper for years with an added clause which says that the final word shall be the hospital decision. Whether or not your hospital issues a 1 year certificate for those specialties is a matter you need to take up with the home hospital administration.
Good luck.
