Book Guide for 4th year

Here is a list of books which most of the students use in 4th year. Every individual has his/her own preferences. They can adjust accordingly.

  • Medium Robbins (as a text book it is enough, dont go for big as a text book as it is difficult to memorize in the end)
  • Few topics r to be done from big which r: Bladder cancers
                      Classification of Tumours esp CNS
                      Breast and Bone tumours (if u want to do, not necessary)
  • Pathoma- listen to its lectures, you'll get a good concept of things and take its book for revision. It's a mini book which is helpful during vivas also. It helps in Mcqs as well. 
  • Some students used mini robbins for tests and revision, i dont have much idea about that.
  • Shehzad is used to consult some topics but for written only. Topics which we did were graph of cardiac enzymes, lung abcess, diference between types of meningitis.
  • Attend Dr. Shahida's lectures and note extra points.

  • Saleem Akhtar: most of us used this. It is enough for viva and written.
  • Jatoi: Few topics are to be done from here like d/d of red eye, painful and painless vision loss. I did pterygium, squint, gonioscopy and diabetic retinopathy frm here. 
  • Jogi: its a book which was used only for mcqs, few students must have used it as a text book. No idea about tht.
  • Attend Professors' lectures, extra points are added in your lectures.
Better make a combo of saleem akhtar and jatoi. or jogi and jatoi. 

  • Dhingra the one and only
  • Sir Azhar notes which he teaches u during lectures plus past notes available on photocopy shop
  • Sir Paal Notes available on photocopy shop
Community Medicine:
  • J.E Park (for good students :P)
  • Naveed Alam (for most of the students :P)
  • Sir Arif's Nutrient Notes
  • Dr. Saira's biostat lectures which she teaches in class
Every month module is taken, better prepare that topic from book cos in prof you have to study text book. We prepared our modules from log book but ultimately in prof we had to study from text book. In viva for few topics i had to consult log book else book was more than enough.

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, …
