ANATOMY 2013 VIVA/PRACTICAL QUESTIONS


mam raafia had neuro, embryo, head and neck.neuro viva : levels of midbrain, nuclei at this level, rubrospinal tract and its decussation, functions of red nucleus, superior cerebellar peduncles, connections of basal ganglia and its function, arterial supply of cerebrum, spotting of cerebellum , thalamus, hypothalamas, midbrain, corpus callosum etc. wernicke's area and its number ,broca's area, aphasias, medial medullary syndrome, lateral medullary syndrome. Blood supply of chorid plexuses., cutaneous branches of trgeminal, nuclei at the level of pons. gross spotting of poms basilar artery its branches, formation of leminisci nd the type of fibers nd senstion they carry, auditory areas number and location


embryo : development of lens, retina. retinal detachment.she had cvs model, eye model and git models and was asking about the development of liver, duodenum, pancreas, bladder, uterus, histogenesis of bladder, septum primum and septum secondum etc. spleen.
, development of uterus, paramesonephric ducts, rotation  of stomach, components of development of diaphragm

head and neck : extraocular muscles, their nerve supply, middle ear contents, branch of facial nerve given off in middle ear, sensory supply of face.she was asking alot of questions from larynx, pharynx, soft palate etc. mainly from the end chapters. atlantooccipital joint pe movement
mandible attachments, structures passing through mandibular foramen, artery nd nerve supplying nasal septum,
NOTE: Maam rafea likes to link the whole viva. whatever you say in the asnwer she can use it in the next question. For e.g, when asked about boundries of third ventricle, if you mention that it is related to choriod plexus, the viva shifts to chorid plexus and the artery supplying it. and keep the answer as to the point as possible, other wise the viva gets quite complicated.

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…

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, …
