OSPE Viva: 

Viva and ospe prep is completely different from written . For passing a subject you have to pass viva/ospe and written SEPARATELY.


OSPE--> Netter's ATLAS + McMinns Atlas + ACKLAND Video Lectures

For Thorax:

For Embryology Video Lectures:

LONG slide + Viva---->long slide you Have to identify + draw the diagram
External and internal will take viva from it.
--> For Gross and embryo:
Read your whole course
1. DO ALL the bones once. Complete in one day. Important ones are(scapula, Humerous, Clavicle, 1st rib, Hip bone, Femur, Tibia) Ask your seniors to tell you your HOD fav bone. Read ALL the viva questions here on the blog.
