How To Apply For House Job

I am assuming everyone is as lost as me, and if you are not then shame on you XD you could have written this blog ages ago for us ;-;
So anyways I am  going to try to explain the process of application for housejob (KEMU/MAYO)
 It consists of three steps mainly:
1.       Getting a provisional certificate from KE (it a piece of paper used til the degree is issued, stating you graduated from your institute)
2.       Getting a PMDC provisional certification for House job (it states that you can now perform HJ)
3.       Actually applying for the housejob

Since I like to utilise my time, I prefer getting all my documents ready in one go. That list is given below. However, if you plan to take each step as it comes, I will be mentioning the required documents (the ones I know of) along with each step.

1.    Around 5 copies of all the DMCs (get 4 sets attested from someone beforehand, one set will be attested by the VC)
2.  Around 5 copies of your matric and FSc certificate or ‘sanad’ (get 4 sets attested from someone beforehand, one set will be attested by the VC)
3.   1-2 Attested copies of your domicile
4.  About 10-12 Passport sized photographs on a WHITE background WITH YOUR EARS SHOWING because they need to make sure we are not elephants (get 3-6 attested from the back, 3 will be attested by the VC- one from the front which will be pasted on the form and two from the back)
5.  One Affidavit for which I will attach the format here.

FROM KEMCAANA /Your own Printer/ Your own pen
1.  1 application that you have to write to the VC for the provisional certificate ( I will try to attach its format as well)

1.  1 form for the PMDC provisional certificate 
download from: here)
2  1 application for House job (you can get it from the café, I will also attach a copy here)
    3.  3 copies of the clearance certificate. You have to get all three signed from every respective place. One will be attached to the provisional certificate

1.  Provisional certificate and student PMDC registration form ( part 1 of the process. The student PMDC registration form is actually the form you submitted at the time of the admission and has your undergraduate registration number. It will be returned to you now hopefully)
2.  Get an attempt certificate made (it is required for the actual house job application and will be made after the provisional certificate is made. A separate application is needed for that which requires a copy of provisional certificate as well. You can do this once you have sent in your form to PMDC) - afterthought: they dont make it while the provisional certificate thing is being done so you can either wait for it to be over for everyone and then apply or :
      house job wali application pe Jahan marks wala column h wahan ek jagah Riaz sahb ya Sattar sahb se verify kra k sign krwa lo. Tou accept ho jaegi application.
3.   Get a distinction certificate made as well (you wont need it for this process but you will need it later, it will require a form from the exam branch and you will have to submit 100 rupees for it)- again you will have to wait for this 

1.       200 for provisional certificate
2.       200 for attempt certificate
3.       1000 for attestation of PMDC form and documents
4.       100 for distinction certificate (if you are getting it)
5.       Hostel dues clearance if you have any remaining dues
-      every hostellite has to pay some money at the end, for us it was around 3600
       mess bill clearance if you have an account
6.       All above need separate challan forms to be submitted to Bank of Punjab, bank square branch)
7.       500 fee for PMDC form on regular basis (add 150 if you want them to TCS you the certificate)
       the fee for urgent is 1500+150
8.       Karya  for the petrol/riskhaw

STEP 1- Getting a provisional certificate

Things you need:
1.       Application to VC to issue a provisional certificate
2.       One Clearance form (signed by respective people)- approx. one day of zalalat ( the sequence I propose is start with 
       -LWH then hostel, MS Mayo hospital (MS doesnt sign, Nasir sahb hotay upstairs MS office wali jaga pe, he does, Pharma (director physical education), Cashier, Library, cafe) It looks something like this when it is done:

3.       Challan form 200 rs
4.       Attach attested copies of CNIC, Matric, FSc certificate, domicile, DMCS, 2 pics attested from the back.
      And a form given by room number 2 that you have to fill and attach with all the documents. It looks like this :

5.       Submit all of this to sattar sahb in room number 2.
      He will send you upstairs to get it diaried and signed from the registrar office. Then you bring it back and submit. This will account for one day of zalalat approx.
     He will ask you to come back after two days.

Now you will get the application you submitted alongwith your provisional certificate. You have to take them both to room number 1 and get a diary number on it by them (bottom left of the form)which they will also enter in their register. Then you go back to sattar sahb who will stamp the certificate for you. Then you write " received provisional certificate", your name and cell number on the application like so (bottom right of form)

Now you get your provisional certificate which finally looks like this : 
Get it laminated and get some photocopies of it as well

PMDC student registration form that we submitted in the start of first year will be given back to us. It looks like this :
So you get this, fill it up. Get it signed and stamped from sattar sahb and then get 2 copies for the pmdc form and some additional copies for yourself. Then you have to submit it back to them. 


Things you need
1.       Filled form of PMDC (link in the article above)
2.       Challan form of 1000Rs (the one mentioned above)
3.       Bank draft of 500 Rs (or more accordingly ) for the pmdc account
4.       Documents mentioned in the form
Attach the documents to the form, take the 1000 fee voucher to vc/registrar office. They will attest the documents and will get the form signed by VC.

Now you send these documents with the filled form and bank draft to PMDC via TCS or go to Islamabad or Lahore centre and do it yourself. If you are going to the office yourself, you do not need the bank draft. You will just pay at the bank counter there at the office.
After this you will receive your PMDC registration within 1-2 weeks via tcs.


Things you need
1.       Filled application for housejob (link in the article above)
2.       PMDC provisional certificate  
3.       Affidavit mentioned above
4.       Other Documents mentioned in the form
Submit these and then wait for the interviews 😊
TIP: Don’t do this alone. Get your friends together and have fun while waiting to make it more bearable. And then plan a trip to Islamabad with your friends to get your pmdc registration as well xD
Disclaimer: I still don’t know baqi 3 clearance kaha chahye xD also if I made a mistake please correct it, im not 100% sure about this. Im just sharing what I know. Hope it helped.

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, …

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.


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 …

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.
