THE CHRONICLES OF VIVA (THE GENTLEMEN) Anatomy substage/stage

So i am finally back with the male staff of the gross anatomy.............. one word to describe them all is ........ DIVERSITY........... u can be as lucky as to be with sir alamgeer or have a hard day with Dr. Azhar..... So here goes:

Dr.Jalal
the reason i chose him as the first teacher to write about is cuz i have given him a total of 8 vivas the very first one in my 1st year and the very last one in my 2nd year as well............... tou nobody knows his vivas like our group............. he is bound to choose the most unimportant and the tincy wincy thing nobody cares about and the he will not move onto the next question u have answered the first one.......... DO NOT LEAVE ANY NOOK OR CRANNY OF UR SYLLABUS WHEN GIVING HIM THE VIVA........ keep a cool head and be bisti proof!!!!!!!! But the good news is he rarely fails anyone and awards good marks when the student has studied well.


Dr.Alamgir

he is the teacher every one prays for before the sub stage or stage.... un k paas viva bole tou no tension....... he is really soft and helping and if u have studied well ou u can do wonders in ur viva

Dr. AZHAR

The complete opposite of sir alamgir .if your viva is with him tou ap ko dwa ki nhn dua ki zaroorat hati hai............ loves failing . never crosses 56......... only once gave 60..........never satisfied with any answer....... has his own spectrum of anatomy which is way out of the reach of normal students............. i have given him two vivas and passed both at 53 and felt like a victor both the times :D


Dr.Javaid Aslam

He does take a long viva but it is an easy one and you are bound to pass without a hitch :D

Dr. Suhail

He does ask conceptual questions but asks 97 to 9 questions an easily passes you if you have answered 4. he keeps on prompting the student and makes sure he finds a question the student can answer.... U r actually amongst the lucky ones to have your stage with him............

Dr. Izhaar

to the point bullet questions ...... no messing around.......... no aen baen shaen................


u guys wont have Dr.Amin and Dr.Ashiq Hussain any more but they were great teachers to give vivas to as well...........

But the most important thing to keep in mind is that vivas vary greatly from person

and from time to time just have sound grip on ur subject and keep ur confidence levels high....


BEST OV LUCK.......

  1. Reminded me of anatomy days..
    I had given substages to Dr.Samee,Dr.Jalal,Dr.Dr.Nadia Tazeen and a stage to DR.ATTYA..

    they are memorable days of life..But one thing to say

    "No teacher is your enemy. Most of the time fault is in us. Always respect the teacher and you will be successful in life"

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.

So lets start with the discussion here, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND REASONING WHY I PREFERRED AUSTRALIA OVER USA FOR RESIDENCY.

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 …

The tree that never had to fight For sun and sky and air and light, But stood out in the open rain And always got its share and rain, Never became a forest king, But lived and died a scrubby thing… Good timber does not grow with ease, The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
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)

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST BENEFICENT AND MERCIFUL

     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.
