Preparing for 3rd Professional in Just One Month

Yes, it is possible. The only thing u need is time management and good memory. 3rd prof is easy but with some uncertainities  esp for ENT.

Suppose u have just one month to study and prepare for 3rd Prof then here is the schedule.


Start with ENT as this is lenghty as compared to Eye and Community Medicine and after completing it you can have some satisfacion that u are standing somewhere.

Ent--7 days.

Ideally u should have covered ENT during ward time or give 13 days of ur sendup prep to ENT. Ushould, I repeat u should do every chapter of Dhingra for safe side and for some confidence during viva but in the end its all Good Luck which can get u through it.

So in prof,
 ENT = 7 days.

Day 1 & 2  =  Ear
Day 3         =  Nose
Day 4         =  Larynx and Pharynx
Day 5         =  Surgeries ( do indication,technique.complications of all but u have to do mastoidectomies, tonsillectmy, adenoidectmy, Caldwell-Luc,  SMR and septoplasty complete including position etc)
Day 6         =  Oral cavity, Thyroid, Esophagus, Neck masses and Laser etc.
Day 7         =  Revision or if u are behind schedule.


Eye           =   5 days

Day 1        =   Errors of refraction, Eyelids, Lacrimal apparartus,
Day 2        =   Cornea, conjunctiva.
Day 3        =   Lens, Glaucoma
Day 4        =   Retina, Squint
Day 5        =   Misc and minor chapters like sclera etc.

If u do Saleem Akhtar then u will remember 80% of Eye while in exam but if u do Jatoi u will only remember 50%. But to remember 100% u will have to do it during ward, sendup prep also.

Community Medicine

CM          =    4 Days

Day 1      =    Biostat, epi, research
Day 2      =    Communicable diseases
Day 3      =    Nutition, health etc
Day 4      =    Misc and minor topics 
Do Mam Saira book.


Patho    =      15 days

Day 1      =    Male, female repro
Day 2      =    Kidney all, 
Day 3      =    Blood vessels
Day 4      =    Heart
Day 5      =    Liver, Pns
Day 6      =    Git, pancreas 
Day 7     =    CNS (selective)
Day 8     =    Endo
Day 9      =   Endo 
Day 10     =    Lung (tumors,pneumoconiosis, asthma,emphysema)
Day 11     =   Bones and joints, skin (only headings)
Day 12      =   Blood
Day 13      =   Blood
Day 14    =    Past papers and revision
Day 15   = Revision

Its best that u cover patho in tests and give 15 days to it in sendup prep.

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)
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, …
