As the HOD of physiology has changed this year so there maybe slight modifications in the important topics this year. I guess Maam Mehr un Nisa must have stressed upon the topics that are really important so my advice is do not ignore the guess that has been given by her…!!!

And the rest of the tidbits are the same as I’ve given earlier.

1st Prof Part I Annual Examination 2010

b) What are pressure changes in atria during the cardiac cycle? (5)

This was the question paper of the profs 2010 and I have questions of class tests too but I don’t think they’d be of any use now. You (I’m assuming if someone does read this, it would be only 1st year) should look up your own class tests of this year and high chances are that the prof questions would be mostly from among those. But yeah the purpose of telling important topics is that you should prepare these better than the rest. At no cost, it means that you should do ONLY these topics. No, no, that would be disastrous for sure. So do everything and have faith in Allah. Good luck =)

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.

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…
