United States is one of the most preferable destinations of medical education. However, the tuition and cost expenses are always a matter of issue.

This week a medical portal called “Update Medicine” published two articles outweighing the cost and opportunities of medical education in United States. In the first article, it explains cost of medical education in various medical universities and on the second one, it highlights the life … Continue reading Medical Education in United States : Cost Vs Opportunities

Preparation for the boards…..

20 days to go for the boards. This exit is a ticket to the clinicals. Its going tough but has also induced some more interest in Medicine. Somebody rightly said ” Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength” Anatomy is quiet bulky as well volatile subject when it comes to the matter of memory. I doubt if anyone can recall all those relations after 2 months of completion of boards 😛 And the university asks quite uncertain questions on Anatomy. So, I think it would be wise enough to focus on Histo & Development in order to survive Anatomy … Continue reading Preparation for the boards…..

The weakness of a backbencher

That intense shine brighter than the starry skies, That purpose lodged deep into the enthusiastic eyes, Those wondering questions unanswered inside my mind, Those unrevealed mysteries about the womankind, That name written in the broken mirror inside, That single secret which often tends to hide, Those soft fingers of a child stretching out, Those eight barbels possessed by a hornpout, That numbness petrified by the awakened dreams, That awful midnight when the frustration screams, Those currents of pain suppressed under my narrations, Those drunken nights and the never ending celebrations, That threatening call by rain to reclaim the atmosphere, That … Continue reading The weakness of a backbencher

The memory of crushes I happened to encounter in my life sometimes induces a feeling of regretfulness.

Imagination,Creativity and Medicine

It was another Friday eve in the nearby restaurant when a strange greenish white texture onthe wall dragged my attention. The transition from blank state of mind into the state focused on the wall continued to show even more effect after the caffeine I had ordered arrived at the table. I began on focusing more and the texture kept on inducing more pleasant sensations to the mind. Then suddenly I began to receive the holographic images off that wall as the initial intake of caffeine approached threshold. The two forces of the mind began to counteract each other. The first … Continue reading Imagination,Creativity and Medicine

Rainy Days of 2012 & the Hectic Neuro Schedule

  Last few days have marked the beginning of rainy season this year. I wanted to write something about rain earlier on but this onset of Neurosensory schedule has cut off much of the time estimated for thinking. Huge classroom hours and these practical sessions since morning till evening are just sufficient to make anyone exhausted. This Neurosensory system has transformed many of my friends from their rocking cool nature into the silent, calm guys confused with their own common sense. I don’t remember the exact citation but a survey revealed most of the medical students who smoke begin smoking … Continue reading Rainy Days of 2012 & the Hectic Neuro Schedule
