Debate: Shouldn't we be studying Medicine & Surgery in M
Hi buddies..!

JUGGLING two volumes of Harrison, bailey n love, maheshwari, dutta, ghai, yadav, khopkar, ahuja alongwith clinical postings, lectures, practicals in the 8th & 9th sem would be HEAVY & confusing..!

So why not study a bit.. rather a CHUNK of medicine n surgery in the 6th and 7th sem..
what say??

With regards
Rashmila

Hi rashmila, this is Pawan from mumbai. I am also in sixth semester.
Hey … I agree wid you…in the 8th and 9th sem we would literally be juggling books, clinics, lectures and so on!! Rashmila u sound serious about your studies and I am damn sure you must have already studied some systems from these vast subjects without waiting for a reply.

Soon I would be having my vacations and wanna study a CHUNK (as u said) of medicine and surgery during this vacation. Would like to join you for group studying...

Thanx 4 ur response Pawan..

Wen i started this thread some days ago… I knew nobody would reply….As expected there was no reply for so many days!!!

Hi rashmila are you online?


rmh


Hi pawan I hav studied only symptomatology in 4th sem; endocrines,GIT (a part of it))& CVS ( a part of it) in this sem… wud like 2 start all over again


rmh


What about you pawan?


pawan2485
Aim AIIMS

just started with first few chapters from Vol 1 harrisons
wanna join u


rmh


shall we start 2day??


pawan2485
Aim AIIMS

Certainly
So how do we go about?


rmh


As final yr part 2 is fast approaching, we cant afford 2 take too many liberties in part 1….
My seniors told me dat one shud read texts like Harrison & bailey in his/her 6th sem bcoz u cant finish reading them if u have started in ur part2..
To add to ur worry icon_sad.gif u also have loads of books of other subjects to study too… and keeping med & surg ( which form the bulk of MBBS…!!!!) for studying in the final yr part 2, wud definitely instore GRAVE PROGNOSIS icon_sad.gif

Studying it from now onwards & discussing MCQs, wud help us in final yr part 2 & also for PG entrance icon_biggrin.gif

We cud cover three to four systems from med & surg each…. Taking maximum of 4 days for each system


pawan2485

pawan2485

Lets study one system alternatively from med and surgery, so that we are done with two systems of med, surgery each by 20th of this month. And the next set of systems by 2nd or 3 june.


rmh


Oops!!! icon_surprised.gif That wud mean 8 systems in just one month!!! along with our routine ent, oph & psm which we need 2 revise as our sem exams r also approaching.
Certainly pawan lets follow this schedule of med & surg strictly. As it is we wud read only PSM in our 7th sem


rmh


So lets quickly go thru symptomatology as u have already started with it & then start with CVS. Is that okay with u pawan??

WHY NO RESPONSE?

hi RASHMILA.. WHY NO RESPONSE ?


SACHET


hi people
i agree with rashmila,but at the same time i feel we should b dng PSM quite thoroughly nd seriously........it covers a lot of topics from medicine nd other subjects.........also PSM carries quite a weightage in the PG entrnce xam.....regarding medicine i feel reading medicine selectively nd intellingently will help.........by tht i mean pick up topics which r FAQs in ntrnce nd other xams otherwise it will consume a lot of time nd we ll lag in other subjects.....wat say???


rmh


Hi Daryldc
Sorry…I have nt finished my exams… shall join after my sem exams .. may be..
