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”

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, …
