Chutyan khatam….. nahiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii….. !!

Too dramatic isn’t it….. ;)
But seriously……….. at this very moment everybody;s thinking the same……..
“vacations… why you end so sooooon!!!”

Well shouting out loud does help, it lets all the frustrations out.
But the reality won’t change because we need to realize that complaining is not going to do anything.
The only things that console us are the good times we had at home especially the round the clock “blissful sleep”.

We think
“Vacations ka THE END means life ka THE END”.

Remember that it isn't as bad as we think it is. We'll have friends/coworkers to talk to, and We'll have some routine again.
Think about the fact that we’ll be back to the "real" world. We are medical students and we should focus on that. (ok I know it feels terrible even reading this, trust me we have mutual feelings, coz it feels like killing yourself right now coz our heart  aches thinking about going back to school) But this is not going to help anyone.
Think about meeting friends and the fun we’ll have chasing after each other (and not the post-vacation tests).

The most difficult role here is of the hostellites. They have to leave their families and homes again which makes it really depressing. Sometimes it gets difficult to get over the fact that we’ll miss our Families a lot, especially “Maa ki god may sona, Papa say ladyan krna and the FIGHTS with the siblings” and when we whine about it in front of our friends they try to be cool (in my case) and we get to hear taunts like, “grow up, bachy he rehna tum, baray ho jau ab”

 But Yes, then they console us too because as I told you before, ”mutual feelings”.
"mil k rotay hain" :")

In a nut shell, I know it's not fair that we Medical students get only a one-month-vacations but we really don't need to cry over it. Rather we should start remembering how to do our work again !! 

You and I need to be strong especially the "Freshmen". Don't take studies as burden yet, beacuse the "the time which-should-not-be-named" is yet to come.
Seeing statuses on FB like:

well that is a hell of a problem.
So start packing folks!!

It’s not the end of the world just vacations ka THE END !!

Take it easy, take care of yourselves and all the best. !!

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, …

Australian Medical Council AMC Part 1 Guide - Experience and Tips

AMC Part 1 by Dr. Asad Khizar Malik (Rank : 77/620) Australian Medical Council  Guide - Experience and Tips
Salam people, let me start in the name of Allah who’s the greatest benefactor of all mankind. Hope everyone is doing great. I'll try to write as much as I can for the people who are due to various reasons more interested in joining Australian Hospitals for post-grad training as compared to the USMLE pathway.

I am a graduate of King Edward Medical University, class of 2004-2010. I did my 6 months house job after graduation in Mayo Hospital, and after that, i gave my AMC Part 1 in November, 2010 from Brisbane. With the grace of Allah, I passed that in first attempt.


First thing in mind that comes with post grad training in Pakistani doctors minds is: Which way to go after graduation? That is a very tough decision that is …

The tree that never had to fight For sun and sky and air and light, But stood out in the open rain And always got its share and rain, Never became a forest king, But lived and died a scrubby thing… Good timber does not grow with ease, The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
Getting yourself educated in the desi manner i.e. through the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education is one of the top most challenges of today’s society. Matriculation seems difficult at that time, but when you enter FSc, you realize that matric was the easiest job in the world.  Those obese books of intermediate part I and part II are the worst enemies one can ever have.  People say Medical is tougher, but I find one basic difference in both. When you enter a medical college, y…

USMLE Step 2 CK experience by Rizwan Khan (254)


     I recently got done with Step 2 CK exam & I want to elaborate my experience and the mistakes that I made during my prep so that any of my colleagues who are preparing for this exam might benefit from them. I wont go much in detail about how to prepare and where to prepare from since it is already highly debated on the forum and in the previous posts but would focus more on my personal experience and the bad choices which I made during the preparation phase.
