Blessings of KE

By Larraib Saleem (2015-20)

We have been in KE for four months but it feels like this journey started years ago.The feeling of belonging to this land since long prevails everyday.During all this short time span,KEMU has been the most amazing experience so far in my life.Even though we are the batch facing the renovation crisis with most of our time being spent in the legendary old auditorium.We hope our juniors will be able to avail the physiology lecture theatre :p.We are the batch who don't even know who is our HOD for biochemistry.( total confusion hai) :/
But KE has blessed us with such awesome things we never imagined of.

1.Dome thingy :

                           We firstulas believe in capturing pictures of the historic domes of Patiala at least once in a week and putting them as DPs and cover photos.Along with the picture we never miss the hashtags like
#KEMU #KEMCOLIAN :')


2.Variety of people :

There is a large variety of people in my class and I am sure this is the same with other years as well.From region to habits, my class offers all kinds of people.We have the clapping masters who start clapping even at the lame things one can ever imagine.We have actors and singers too who grab the mic and the stage as soon as the teacher steps out.We also have debators,poets,critics and intellectuals.Great minds,Immense talent and what not!

3.Theetas:

                 I didn't mention the "THEETAS" above because they are a separate specie.They are the ones who study everyday,listen all the lectures and raise their hands to answer every question( like HOW? HOW).People like me are mostly sleeping during the lecture or preferably bunking the lecture :D.Everytime a theeta answers a question I always wonder where is all this written and where was I ! Under a rock or in a cave :/.

4.Substage chills:

                             How can I forget the goosebumps substage gives us every week.Every week while studying anatomy and then forgetting it after every microsecond makes me think
'How did I come here? Was I intelligent an year ago? How I made it to KE?'

5.The Great Anarkali:

Being adherent to the historic and legendary Anarkali we can get anything we want ranging from books from Zubair to gol gappay of food street.Like everything :')

6.The Royal Pigeons:

The pigeons at KE are the real gamers which believe in welcoming you in a shitty way every time you pass by them.
*Well played Kabootar Well played* -_-
  
There are many more charms of KE still left :p But ! But !
In the end it goes without saying that the KEMCOLIAN tag is the best tag and that Kemcolians are the most multi talented people you can ever come across :')

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.

So lets start with the discussion here, but PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS ENTIRELY MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND REASONING WHY I PREFERRED AUSTRALIA OVER USA FOR RESIDENCY.

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)

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH THE MOST BENEFICENT AND MERCIFUL

     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.
