Premed/FSc Guidance and Counselling Initiative.





Few Words about [AsK]emUnited Premed Counselling Initiative..

KemUnited started a premed section not very long ago. We got an overwhelming response to it, within a short period of time. The KemUnited team felt that there was widespread ignorance about preparation techniques. Most of the students relied on hearsay from their nearest friends and seniors, which may have guided or misguided them depending on the caliber of that person.

KEMU Patiala Block: From Eagle to Peacock by Atia Sadiq for The Nation.

KEMU Patiala Block: From Eagle to Peacock by Atia Sadiq        The following is an article published in the daily The Nation. It has been published on KemUnited blog with permission from the writer.

When I reached near the west gate of Patiala Block of King Edward Medical University (KEMU), I was grasped by its beauty; grace and grandeur. I was so pulled toward it that for some moments I forgot the original purpose of my visit. It was only after around five years that I got a chance to visit this fascinating building, examine it and write on it.
