4th Yr: EYE

i found eye to be the easiest in 4th year .... though many dont.... u baisically study eye only in the one month eye ward .. for rest of the year u seem to forget tht eye too is a major subject....yes class tests do take place... but in a manner tht make u want not to study.... with the entire class in one lecture room ... u can imagine how "seriously" these class tests were taken.... we have 3 eye units... UNIT 1 has Dr. Sahi as professor... the ward days u have for unit one u shud always be ON time , WITH a working torch and a bundle of TWENTY FIVE eye examination sheets (u can get them at the photocopier).....otherwise u ll end up being kicked out of the ward or nt having ur attendence marked... the rest units are cool EXCEPT when u get dr. javed chaudry in unit 2... then i m afraid u should brace yourself a LONG long day ahead... with Dr. Mumtaz being the head of UNIT2 and DR. Asad the head of unit 3... but its mostly Dr Raza in unit 3 who teaches us..... at the end of ur ward dont forget to write 25 eye examination sheets and getting them signed by only UNIT 1 teachers... they are required in final viva... do bug the teachers about teaching u DARK ROOM TESTS ... they are a important part of final viva and none of us really knew how to perform them..... whenever u get the time... go see instruments in O.T.. which we never did and they are now being asked in viva... baqi at the end of one month of eye ward u will have 3 ward tests.... one with each unit... unit 1 test is taken by dr. sahi... he mainly emphasizes on clinical examination... unit 2 mostly by dr javed or by dr mumtaz.. this is a killer viva the one u need to study for... and lastly unit 3 ward test taken by dr raza... its mostly easy as well... now coming over to the books ... i made SALEEM AKHTAR my basic book ...i found it realtively easier then i would advise u saleem akhtar as well with a few topics from Jogi....

Imp topics:

Dark room tests, eye lids complete, lacrimation, epiphora, conjunctivitis, opthalmia neonatorum, xeropthalmia, bacterial corneal ulcer+Cx, keratoconus, Lens complete, Glaucoma complete, vitreous hemorrhage, diabetic + HTN retinopathy, retinal detachment, visual pathway, pupilary reflexes, proptosis, Ocular trauma, errors of refraction + squint complete.

1st Year IMPORTANT TOPICS (Anatomy)

By Farkhanda QaiserOkay finally here it is. The all-important guide for the 1st year students. I’ve compiled all the prof and sendup questions of last year as well as the remnants of class tests that I had.But before you go on to read them, keep in mind the following very tested tidbits:For profs, NEVER leave any topic untouched and unread. Go through all topics so that in viva, you have atleast some idea about what the examiner is asking.NEVER lose your sendup question paper because there are high chances that some of the questions will be repeated in profs as you can see in the following example of anatomy question paper and same goes for the MCQs. Most of them are repeated. So here’s what we had done, in our facebook class group, we had made a discussion topic, and everyone told the MCQs of sendups and discussed them. Well, you may think us nerds or whatever but trust me that discussion proved very fruitful for all those who participated in it.I think enough has bin said about orga…

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, …
