Guidance Tips for Firstulas

Image
FIRSTULAS, WELCOME TO UNIVERSITY LIFE!  Here are some things I learnt during university life or wished someone had told me earlier. Sharing these tips so you might benefit from: //NO BEST FRIEND.

Read conceptual books alongwith exam-essential books. Watch YouTube animations. Listen to Dr Na

CAREER as ARMY DOCTOR By Captain Dr. Saad KEMU 2011-16  DISCLAIMER:  The article is based on personal views and does not represent or conform to any official policy of the Army.  KE  has a bright history of close association with the Army.

It was a promotion as well as validation for the three years I had put in at KEMU since my return from the USA in 2010. And it would never have happened if Faisal sahib had not been our Vice-Chancellor (the first permanent Vice-Chancellor since KE became a University in 2006). It would not be a stretch to say that it was Faisal sahib’s grand entrance into the Vice-Chancellor’s office at KE which finally started an ascent in KE’s fortunes. KEMU’s predecessor, King Edward Medical College with its venerable history and traditions had no equal in Pakistan; in fact in the entire region, since it is the 3rd oldest medical institution in the Indian subcontinent after Calcutta Medical College (established 1835) and Grant Medical College Mumbai (estab
