4th Yr : EYE viva

Eye viva is the longest and the most hectic ...especially if u r the last batch... 3 batches together give the eye viva... u have to give 5 vivas
Viva no. 1 : Long case... in long case u mostly get cataract ... bt u can get other cases as well .. mine was squint... u have to take history and examine the patient and no dnt worry u wont be alone .. two students get a single long case..... bt no both of u wont have the same examiner... ones long case viva would be with an internal and the other one would have his with an external... u wont be wrting ur history and examination on eye examination sheets .. u would get a seperate answer sheet ... u have to write the entire history and examination on it...

Viva no. 2 : this is with Dr. sahi....he has with him 3 patient for short cases... he gives u the command as to which patient u have to examine and which eye... u are given 5 minutes for tht... u are required to have ur own eye examination sheets for tht ... take along the 25 histories u completed in the ward when u go for viva as well.... u hand over ur examination sheet to dr sahi ... he asks abt the findings and their causes... then he asks u to perform a dark room test... u give ur 25 histories to him..
Viva no. 3 : this is taken by an external .. he asks u to perform a dark room test.. and then asks questions related to it
Viva no. 4 : this is take by an internal... mine was taken by dr mumtaz ... he has infront of him instruments and various drugs like atropine, pilocarpine, tropicamide, tropical anesthetics... he asks u to pick one of them up... identify them and give their uses
Viva no. 5 : its with an external... he too has with him 3 or 4 short cases.. u are asked to examine the patient.. it would be specified as to what u have to examine...and then he takes viva on ur findings and conditions related to it

the sequence maynot go as above.,.... u are required to bring a torch, ur 25 histories, ward card and empty eye examination sheets. be there at 9;00

I am a final year student at King Edward Medical University and I took my exam on June 10th. Final year is the year before internship/ house job in Pakistan. I just got my scores: 99/266

Let me introduce some myths surrounding USMLE Step 1 which are especially prevalent within Pakistan; I am not too sure about India because I heard their students typically appear in their final years.

 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, …
