Magic with Medicine by Umair Jaliawala

By Farkhanda Qaiser
Thank You everyone for turning up for the event, "Magic with Medicine" and making it a HUGE SUCCESS...
An auditorium overflowing with people...
An audience of over 350 students from all walks of life with a huge majority being the medical students of KE...
A rowdy crowd that was tamed by the great Umair Jaliawala ...
An engaging 2 and a half hour session in which no one left their seats, infact more people kept on pouring in...despite the fact that there was no more seating capacity...they were content to sit on the floor, on the stairs, at the armchairs...anywhere...just to listen to the magic that was coming forth from the mouth of a great magician who claims to turn 'on' people and INDEED that's exactly what he did...!! Thank You so much SOL and SARD for makin it happen!

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…

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, …
