20 times House M.D. was TOO REAL

As a medical student, I believe House MD is the only medical show that actually addresses medicine and is not just drama. Even though, every episode is basically structured the same way and if you binge-watch it, it could get boring since its all the same but so is your life. So, yeah. Highly recommended for Spring Break, if you haven't watched it already.

There are so many memorable moments from this show but these twenty times it was WAY TOO REAL and as medical students we can all relate.

1. When you're told your crush is getting married to an MD

2. When theetas tell you, 'Yar, aik lafz nahin parha. Kuch nahin ata'

3. How you try to please the teacher taking your VIVA:

4. When it is your turn to go to the Paeds Ward:

 5. When somebody adds you to a study group on Whatsapp:

 6. When your teachers admonish you for giving the wrong answer (or no answer at all):

 7. When your patients are too hard to deal with:

8. When you get caught while marking a proxy:

9. When somebody asks, 'How are your bedside manners?'

10. When patients Google their symptoms and tell you they have cancer

11. When your teacher tells you there's a test coming up

 12. When non-meds ask you how you deal with medicine:

13. When your friend tells you that you need to start studying

14. When your parents lecture you

 15. In an 8 am Lecture:

16. When your friend takes exams too seriously:

17. When a ten-year-old wants to become a doctor

"So disappointed in you"

18. When somebody asks, "Parhae kesi jarahi hai?"

19. You ask your patient if they smoke, they refuse to have ever even touched a narcotic but when you open their file it says "Addicted to Chars (Hashish)"

20. Last, but not the least, your love-hate relationship with medicine:

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

 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, …
