IFMSA- Lahore presents "CAREER GUIDANCE SEMINAR" -- Time to Decide your Future!

“Would you tell me please which way I ought to walk from here?”
‘That depends on a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.
‘I don’t  much care where--’ said Alice
“Then it doesn’t matter which way to walk,”said the Cat.
(Alice’s adventures in Wonderland)

So It is very important to ‘begin with the end in mind’ as Sean Covey phrases it. Previously It was  the dream of coming into KEMU behind my every action.  Every test that I rattalized in FSc, Every night that I spent with those extremely boring books was  Yes, for the 'Greater Good.’
And then time passed and Allah by His Kindness granted me KEMU. So What further now?
Study. Ok.
Studying… Studying.. Substages.. Stage.. Physio’s rain of tests.. Biochem test.. GA/ Histo tragedy i.e test…
Wait a second.. But Why Am I doing all this.. Why all the trouble of taking so much tests. Attending lectures when I could have been sleeping at home.. Making practical copies for what good reason?
I want to be a doctor. That’s why.
Ok. So I think again.
What I’ll be doing after going  the torturous five years of mbbs.
I think.
I am blank.
Belonging to a family having no doctors at all, I am a person with nil knowledge about the opportunities I have when I’ graduate. I am not even familiar with even the definitions of ELECTIVES, RESIDENCY, OBSERVE SHIP etc etc.
Are I am dead sure there will be people out there just like me who need to know what are the career options that we have as mbbs graduates. So that we may be able to keep the end in our minds and we can mould our thinking and strategies according to the plan that we think is the best for us.

So for people like me, IFMSA presents “ Career Guidance Seminar”

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, …

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.


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)


     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.
