Your Weekly Dose Of Kellogs

We live in troubled times. Our country and its people are being made to pay dearly for the doom and misfortune that's befalling in other parts of the world. Or maybe they're just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I guess this week's Kellogs feature sounds too sombre. But then these are sombre times and we have tough things to take stock of and untoward circumstances to come to terms with.

This Kellogs Weekly is dedicated to all those Pakistanis who've forever lost some part of their life to this ongoing wave of terrorism and confusing loyalties which seem to have taken hold of the air, water and soil of our homeland. Read this very moving poem by Arooj Kohli of 3rd yr, written on the occasion of the extremely tragic demise of the son of our beloved Anatomy demonstrator, Sir Javed Iqbal, who lost his life in the terrorist attacks on the Ahmedi mosque in Lahore on 28th May 2010. We hope and pray that all the families and homes hit by the crippling hailstorm of terrorism find peace and solace and that our country and its people manage to steer clear of stormy waters and find calm shores again.




Thought Of The Day:

If you can dream and not make dreams your master

If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop and build 'em with broken tools
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

(Rudyard Kipling)

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 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, …
