    Sir , what is the definition and minimum qualifications for a doctor to be considered as SPECIALIST in concerned subject,say , GYNAECOLOGIST .

    I do not know in what context you have asked this question, whether for joining a service in some hospital or medical college or for some other purpose.

    As far as I understand there is no legal term like “medical specialist” defined in any Act. If you are referring to requirements for recruitment as medical professionals, you may have to refer to the minimum qualifications or requirements as mentioned in the advertisement / notice / rules for such recruitment, etc.

    Generally speaking, a post-graduate degree such as MD or MS (after completion of MBBS) may be considered as a specialist degree in a particular branch, such as Gynaecology. But, then, it may depend on the context in which it is mentioned, and different degrees or minimum requirements may be specified by concerned organisations for recruitment, etc., as per their job requirements.
