KEMU Graduate Diaries: Dr.Usama Bin Tahir



Dr.Usama Bin Tahir of batch 2012 is currently working as Emergency Medicine Resident Physician in New York Medical College. During his days in King Edward Medical University, he served as President KAPS Kemcolians Arts & Photography Society , co-founder KemUnited and had been an integral part of Kemcolians Dramatics Society, Sports Club and various other societies and projects.

"When I came to KE I thought I was done with my studies because that's what mum said all my life: "Putar bus ab parh lo agay sari umer ayash ha" Obviously turned out my life was a lie. But to enjoy I practically joined all the societies that existed. And these societies gave me something more. They gave me people. Powerful people. As in those who knew what to do with their life. So I obviously was a few years ahead of my class-fellows. And that made all the difference.
Me, I knew what I wanted to do right from early years of KEMU. Helped me focus, oriented and put my energies in right direction. Instead of studing for prof I studied for MLE's. Got in touch with with people who helped me in every walk of life. If I had any issue I used to eat the brains out of my seniors until I was confident and knew exactly what the next step would be like.
My advice to all the undergrades would be. Cherish the moments you have. Aim big. Aim early. And go for it. There is nothing impossible in this world. And nothing is as hard as people say. But it needs proper devotion, proper time and most importantly proper guidance. Work smart rather then work hard. And have faith and hope in God because that would be single most important thing that will keep you going.
Goodluck "

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, …
