-----------------Practicals -------<-- more -->-------
practical ka chil scene hespoting easy hoti hestaining ko step wise karo to achi ho jati heurine ya stool ki slide me jo nazar ae woh draw kar do draw kia hoga viva bhi almost wahin se hoga.
Patho prac :
1) Stool examination.. Draw ova of worms (enterobius,ascaris,ancylo
viva questions were from parasito mostly : Hydatid disease, filariasis,
2) ZN Staining : (write principle, procedure, results) viva questions were about AFBs.. mycobacteria mostly, specimens collected, principle of ZN, procedure
Spotting is a piece of cheesecake.. just dont forget to overdo the stations.. there are 24 of them but 4 r xtra, some geniuses did them all ! and they got in trouble.. Also some geniuses got confused after seeing the swab ! its just that cotton-bud thingy u clean the earwaxx with in a fancy box.. and also see the innoculating loop and its use here

Internal Male Examiner:
He looked at my internal assessment card and saw that I was absent in one test. He asked me why and I told him because I had a flight the day before to America. He then spent like 25 minutes talking to me and one of the teachers about a trip he took to California and his brother who lives there and something about Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and a guy who asked him for a cigarette. And something about his travel agent who gave him a sweet deal on visas to America, Japan, and Korea before finally starting the viva!

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…

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.
SELF-ASSESSMENTS AND QBANKS Uworld 74% Kaplan Qbank 69%
Kaplan diagnostics  = 80% (70 days before exam) Kaplan Simulation Exam 1 = 71% (50 days before exam) Kaplan Simulation Exam 2 = 76%  (40 days before exam) Fred simulation for CK = 84% (39 days before exam) NBME 2 (offline) 21 mistakes (30 days before exam)
NBME 4  =    263 (13 days before exam)UWSA =  259 (2 days before exam)
Real exam = 254

Pride and Prejudice- Woeful tales of Pakistani doctors.

By~ Romesa Qaiser Khan.
"Yeh tum larkiyon ne medicine seekh ke kya karna hai? Abhi kuch salon main sari ghar beth jao gi. Choro ward, mazaay karo."

"USMLE karke tum sab ne bahir bhaag jana hai, phir baray humanitarians banay phirtay ho"

"Kemcolian ho, kemcolians saari dunya main chaaye huay hain aur tumhain yeh bhi nahi ata"

Sooner or later, every one of us comes to encounter this blatant tanay-baazi at least once in our three years of clinical medicine, or if things get very real, within the first two years of basic sciences as well. The universal lamentation of the fact that we don't have enough doctors, our doctors are incompetent, our doctors are selfish- these aren't just limited to senior physicians but often come from our patients and are echoed by society too.

And if we're completely honest, it DOES seem to be true. More than half of our batches are made up of girls, inevitably many of those girls ending up settling down and getting marri…
