Next up is community medicine.... the subject that has nothing and yet has everything.... u are required to make to what community walas refer to as "log books" or "portfolios" ... these are baisically weekly torture which we have to submit every other saturday to be signed by our respective batch teachers.. "log bookks" are single lined practical copies u can get at union , are to be covered by the colour of ur batch... and we have to note down the community med lectures of the entire week in it....thus every other saturday morning several kids used to be kicked out for completing their log books in pathology lecture..... these log books carried 20 marks in our class tests...which reminds me DONT make the mistake of studying for tests from the log book... bad idea... go through everything form the standard books which are supposed to be PARK and ILLYAS ... but ofcourse there is always a short cut and no matter how much i tried trying to get through PARK i too ended up reading NAVEED ALAM at the advice would be tht do the imp chps from PARK and rest form NAVEED ALAM..... and yes how can we forget the much notorious RESEARCH of 4th year... aahhh yes... no matter how much u try to understand it u end up being dnt fret if u cant understand the research... because no one does... just go with the whatever everyone around u seems to be doing around u ... because even after an year i dnt have a clue as to what we did in our research...

 Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation

 Verdict: Baseless, illogical reasoning

Explanation: This is so prevalent in Pakistan it’s almost pathetic. One of the biggest concerns surrounding our students is that Step 1 is a huge risk to be taken before graduation. Let me put it in another way: Step1 would always remain a risk whenever it is taken, …
