5 ‎Life Lessons Not All Learned In Class‬

By Taroob Latef

1. Make peace 
with people in your heart. This isn't school or college where you can move on to the next big thing in your life and leave them behind. These people will stay. Maybe not in form or in person but they will stay, as colleagues, as your fellowship, as your brotherhood !

2. "He who hesitates is lost". 
The best things in my life happened because of the risks I took. We hear everyone eagerly telling us what to do and what not to do but sometimes when that voice in your head is too strong, following it could be the best decision you ever made. Worst comes to worst; you fail. But if you don't and worst comes to worst; you regret it for the rest of your life. And fail beats regret by a mile.

3. Be grateful. 
No matter how much you dislike him/her, he/she might have done something, somehow, at some point in time, directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally for you. So before judging that other person and selling yourself to spite, remember that. Their deed might just stop you.

4. Help. 
I cannot count the number of times I have given in to the impulse of making a sprint for it, when a patient comes up to me with a problem and I don't have a clue how to help. But the times I do stay put and try, to do something substantial or just offer a kind word, a weight lifts !

5. Grow with time. 
I am going to miss snoozing my alarm, not showing up when i don't feel like it, heading off home when it pleases me but the time has come to grow up...because I am finally going to become a doctor !

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, …
