FINAL YEAR GUIDELINE 2017.
So, here comes Final Year. A year that is destined to make you “Dr.”. Final year is fun. But it doesn’t mean you don’t have to study. In fact, In final year you have to study more. But in a different way. After passing all the four profs, you'll have enough idea what important and what not. Ti which stuff, you have to give your time..and which stuff doesn’t need any revision at all.
Here is some guideline.
In final year you have to study whole year.:p Try to cover maximum syllabus during ward times. And give your ward test as if it’s a prof. this will eventually help you in prof prep. Do all the methods during your ward time. Present cases in wards, OPDs. Assist surgeries. Make presentations. Be clear about one thing. In final year you have to study yourself. No one will spoon feed you. You have to learn yourself. You have to present cases yourself. Presenting cases in wards will help you in preparing long cases in prof when you are given very short time. Rule is same in all. You may go in detail if you want. But always cover important topics first.
Learn maximum during emergency timings. Emergencies are best for learning. Things you should learn during emergency morning/evening classes are :
- Only important ECGS. Like MI, HYPERKALEMIA. A FIB.
- Instruments especially
· OT instruments.
· Bone tray.
· vascular tray.
· Laparotomy tray.
· Iv cannula of different sizes.
· NG stuff.
· Foley stuff.
· Different drains.
- Methods of sterilization especially in mayo.
- Emergency surgeries. Especially :
· Hernia surgeries
· Amputation and debridment.
- Trauma management.
- Chest tube intubation.
- Try to pass NG , FOLEY at least once.
- Emergency treatment of diseases esp
· PULMONARY EDEMA
At your stage only these are important. If you want to go in detail , you can. But please don’t forget to cover important one first.
Surgery is not hawwa at all. Surgery is easy to study as compared to medicine. Bailey is not difficult, its easy to learn.
You should know detail account of following surgeries:
- · Laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
- · Herniotomy and hernia repair.
- · Thyroid surgery
- · Modified Radical Mastectomy.
- · Appendectomy.
- During ward study surgery as much as you can.
Topics to do must from Bailey:
Bailey is easy to study. Don’t go on its thickness/volume/breadth :P . it’s easy to memorize. Method to study Bailey is ; read whole chap and add your own points in summary boxes given at the end of each topic.. Than you only have to revise those summary boxes and tables.
- Chap 2 Shock
- Chap 4 skills (very imp )
- Chap 5 surgical infections
- Chap 6 surgery in tropics ( only imp topics )
- PERIOPERATIVE CARE WHOLE UNIT

You should read summary boxes of rest of the chapters after covering them from general dogar.

I did Kaplan medicine and Fischer’s lectures during our ward time. First watch Kaplan videos. Than study Davidson. Or whichever book you want to study. Don’t jump on Davidson without watching Kaplan videos. Please don’t study INAM DANISH or other local books. Davidson is a good book.
OXFORD MEDICINE IS GOOD FOR EMERGENCY TREATMENTS.
Try to do PRESENTING PROBLEMS , INVESTIGATIONS walay topics from Davidson just to have some good concepts. Also focus on tables of Davidson.
5Cs and their Infections from Davidson.
Endocrine achi tarah kr len. Coz it ll help you in surgery, paeds, gynae as well.
