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

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)

USMLE Step 1 Experience by Ayaz Mehmood (Score : 99/266)
Salam everyone, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. I am going to write a detailed composition regarding preparation for USMLE Step 1. 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, …

Australian Medical Council AMC Part 1 Guide - Experience and Tips

AMC Part 1 by Dr. Asad Khizar Malik (Rank : 77/620) Australian Medical Council  Guide - Experience and Tips
Salam people, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. Hope everyone is doing great. I'll try to write as much as I can for the people who are due to various reasons more interested in joining Australian Hospitals for post-grad training as compared to the USMLE pathway.

I am a graduate of King Edward Medical University, class of 2004-2010. I did my 6 months house job after graduation in Mayo Hospital, and after that, i gave my AMC Part 1 in November, 2010 from Brisbane. With the grace of Allah, I passed that in first attempt.


First thing in mind that comes with post grad training in Pakistani doctors minds is: Which way to go after graduation? That is a very tough decision that is …

Getting yourself educated in the desi manner i.e. through the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education is one of the top most challenges of today’s society. Matriculation seems difficult at that time, but when you enter FSc, you realize that matric was the easiest job in the world.  Those obese books of intermediate part I and part II are the worst enemies one can ever have.  People say Medical is tougher, but I find one basic difference in both. When you enter a medical college, y…

USMLE Step 2 CK experience by Rizwan Khan (254)


     I recently got done with Step 2 CK exam & I want to elaborate my experience and the mistakes that I made during my prep so that any of my colleagues who are preparing for this exam might benefit from them. I wont go much in detail about how to prepare and where to prepare from since it is already highly debated on the forum and in the previous posts but would focus more on my personal experience and the bad choices which I made during the preparation phase.
