Getting jobs after AMC 1!!!!!

Jobs after AMC step 1
Salam all,

Its been a long time when i posted last but here is something I've recently experienced while applying for a job in Australia for medical officer position.

As I've mentioned in my previous post on AMC, getting jobs here is becoming very tough day by day. 2-3 years back, hospitals used to send a person to receive you on airport and offer you air tickets and stay at the time of joining, and now, all these things are offered no more.

Still, people need job and these things don't matter as long as you get one. There is now a well developed online recruitment system for each state, and they start advertising from April - June each year for the coming year. This process keeps on going till October - November when they finalize the stuff. Most people who come to apply in this campaign usually have to exit and re-enter here for applying, so rather than 3 months of stay here for exam and getting job in that, its becoming highly unlikely. That, in turn means, lots of money to survive here is needed for the 6 months time, keeping in mind a minimum of 400-500$ per month for expenses. If you get lucky, you can get a job on 2nd day after getting here, if not, you might have to wait a little longer.

But people are getting jobs, and its best to apply as soon as possible as it is indeed getting difficult, but not impossible.

I am posting links to the government websites that you need to check regularly in order to get in the RMO campaign:

I'll also encourage you to directly contact as much hospitals as you can. They are always in need of doctors.

And last, BE PATIENT!!!! Not a depression patient.....:)
This is a tough time consuming process to bear with and it requires lots of patience to get it done.


If there are any more queries, feel free to post.

Regards,

Dr. AK Malik

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)

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, …
