What We Do In KE #2

By Laiba Khalid

    • On Sundays at home

    • Waking up on Monday mornings

    • Making a list of things to do during the vacations

    But we end up doing

    • When we come out of the professor's office after a bad viva and those thetas want to know all the questions

    • 3rd Year introducing themselves to the patients

     Myth number 1:Do not appear for USMLE Step 1 within your graduation
