Electives at PIC - Punjab Institute of Cardiology, Lahore




PUNJAB INSTITUTE OF CARDIOLOGY ELECTIVES 
by Aariz Zainab 4th Year

( FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO DO ELECTIVES AT PIC AND HAVE ENUF TIME AT HAND AND WANT TO SPEND IT IN A CONSTRUCTIVE MANNER-OK ENUF OF INTRO LETS GT TO THE POINT)
Maam Afshan is the electives coordinator at PIC. Start the application process at least 3 months prior to the date u want for electives. I have no of maam afshan if anyone wants it.

STEPS:HOW TO DO IT?

1.Take the elective application form from PIC or their website. I think i got it from ma friends at PIC.
2.Attach result of 1st and 2nd Prof to it plus an ID card copy of urs. I think i m leaving smthing out so check out d form.After filling it get a photocopy of all of the form plus attached things.
3.The 2nd or 3rd page has to be filled up by the Clerk in room no 3 who also gets it signed by VC. Fr dt write an application addressing the VC dt u want to do electives at PIC nd fr dt u need clearance.Diary dt application.Submitt the photocopy nd original form both to the clerk.He ll keep the copy and return the original one back to you after getting it signed.
4.After getting the form write an application to MS PIC asking for permission to do electives at PIC.Take dt in person to office of MS at 9 o clock any day nd get it signed. He might ask u a question or two abt why u want to do electives at PIC.
5.After dt keep on checking with maam afshan so that she considers your application and gives u a starting date asap.
6.In the end i would say electives at PIC only matter if u want to make a difference.It always helps if you have done it rather than not doin it but while you do it try to learn frm it.If it does not add anything xtra in ur heads then it is obviously of no use.But PIC has great to offer.I really liked the surroundings and atmosphere as compared to Mayo bt it really lacked d motivation nd zeal v c here in KEMU.
7.Try to perform good who knows you might get an LOR.
Timings 1.morning 8am to 1pm 2.noon 3pm to 7pm ....non-officially u can skip few hours.
MY EXPERIENCE:

I did it at the start of the year applied in february and did it in March.It was informative and a good experience.THE OT WS JUST AWSUM ! June july is the mst wanted time so apply at least a month back prior to start date.

If anything is unanswered u r free to question.


Other people say:

Mirza Ijaz: U can start elective on the day of submission of application. I did electives last year.


Its btr to go in grps ov 5 or 6 rather dn goin alone...its easy.nu striknes abt timings..u cn skip few days evn..u cn cmplet as much work in a singl day as u lyke...response ov surgeons,profesrz there is realy gud(except a few)APART FROM LEARNIN ITS a sort ov fun 2..coz u learn for urself n nt 4 EXAMS..

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 …

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.
