I would like to take this opportunity to caution everyone buying books from this little shop accross RMC called "Prince Book Shop". First of all they have no climate control so the humidity from the summer causes the pages on books to become a lil wrinkled and messed up! Secondly, their prices!!! They will RIP YOU OFF BIG TIME! Hell, I know this and I still get ripped off, specially after a long tired day and you just need some books and you just say give me this and go.
First off, if you want a book, look at the 3 shops next to it. Also check Islamabad Saeed Book bank which is pricier SOMETIMES but usually the same in a lot of cases and they have only the highest quality books and usually the latest editions. Their website is You can search and view prices.
Once you have an idea of who has the better price, then buy from them. Prince book shop is in the habbit of telling foreigners double the price of the book up front and so even if you bargain from there your still being chated and forget about getting a good deal!
If you REALLY want a book and cant find it anywhere else, find a local student who has dark skin and dresses badly and speaks urdu/punjabi and get him/her to buy the book from you. They will always give this student the LOWEST price!
I think this information will be useful to lots of people as Shifa, Army Medical, Fauji Foundation, International Islamic and many many other collges buy their books here! So let them know too.Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.December 11th, 2006, 08:27 AM #44December 11th, 2006, 01:41 PM #45
Took these today. One is from the New Computer lab inaggurated today.. Yes, some guy came and cut a ribbon for it. I doubt they'll let students use the computers though, most likely decoration (not a joke). Picture of the library as well as the canteen special called a "samosa plate" and 2 random pics of pindi streets near allied hospitals.Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.December 12th, 2006, 01:43 PM #46November 18th, 2007, 08:29 PM #47November 19th, 2007, 01:38 PM #48November 21st, 2007, 11:01 AM #49
I'm going to start taking new pictures of the al famous paratha and fried eggs, coming soon!Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.November 27th, 2007, 01:55 PM #50
Thanks for the pictures maik7upurz...
Hmm... looking at all these pictures I dont know if I want to go there anymore #eek... not that I got in already! #laugh
I dont think I have the patience to see people wear lab coats all the time, have pirated books and not wash hands when going from one patient to another.... ARGH!!!! #angry Like, how many extra infections is this causing in an year?? What about immuno-compromised patients?!? It could be fatal for them! I dont want to become a doctor who can make millions but a REAL doctor: a kind/caring/compassionate/expert in my field one... (which Im sure you guys will be #happy regardless of their teaching!!!) and if they're not practicing simple hygiene techniques then I dont want to imagine their influence on future doctors!!! Im in a similar position as you are. Having studied in a foreign country for the past 10 years (including university studies), dont know how one can cope with this.... #sad
Man, you must be counting down days till you graduate!!!#dull But at least you can graduate with a MBBS next to your name which is the most important thing in the world! #happy

Today in my ward the patient gave me a long speech on realizing I came from abroad to study here. He goes... I dont know why you come here..but promise me you will not become like these doctors.. They are rude, uncaring, not compassionate, look down on patients who have no money etc. I told him inshallah I wont be like that.
But anyway.. Just need the degree.. Have to put up with this crap no matter what anyway its like this is 90% of all medical schools in Pakistan. Trust me.. RMC is one of the NICER ones!!Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.November 28th, 2007, 02:17 AM #52...

Hmmm I think most Government Medical Colleges are the same, I read maik7upurz and they some how mostly sounded like my university i goto, my college is governmenet also Liaquat University of Medical Health Sciences Jamshoro, Sindh. Hahaha I got accepted here becuase for americans they take 20% off for ibcc and my ibcc score was 773/1100 so i got stuck in the middle of no where. I taught i would get accepted to Punjab, I never heard of this place before I got accepted here. I hate it here, it sucks, I still long to go back and Im about to take my 2nd year exams on the 26th of Dec and im still complaining. Im trying to transfer but its sort of hard to transfer out of provience, I wish I knew some people at other universities who can tell me if there are any empty seats are there medical university. In Pakistan you can't transfer in ur 1st and 2nd year, since the curriculum in 1st and 2nd year is diff in every college. So hopefully InShAllah Ill be able to transfer to some college in Punjab in 3rd year. Hmm what else I pay about $6k a year i'm on the Self Finance Scheme Foreigner scheme. I read the post about the lab coats, I dont think you want your name embroided on your lab coat, the teachers at my university at least would end up making fun of you. Also I thing that happens here to 1st year students is ragging (bullying) seniors go up to the freshmen and ask them to sing a song or dance or do somethiing embarassing. It happened to me, I should of absconded while i had the chance. Also if your going to get accepted to Sindh get used to dealing with the politics between ethnic groups (punjabi sindhi urdu and pathan). Today I found out this freshmen kid got bullied today in the hostel, and the kids father is in the army, he sent some rangers to talk to the bullies. I guess the rangers beat up the bullies and now all the sindhi students protested and they want the kid expelled and all the students who are non sindhis (inc me since im punjabi and im living in the hostels) out of the hostels. Right now I am not in Jamshoro, so ill see when i go back whats up (after eid al adha). But I have to admit, I sometimes goto wards, with the senior students and in wards you receive alot of exposure, since all the patients there poor people.December 11th, 2007, 02:07 PM #54
yap.. but u should replace "taught" with "thought" haha. you cant beat GOVT. medical colleges for clinical exposure no matter what. Just have to keep in mind how inconvenient it is to go to a doctor in Pakistan, or even a hospital.. The trouble to take time off work, to travel, the expenses, to find your way to the place and get an opportunity to see some doctor and then be admitted into a crappy ward. You have to be VERY sick to go through all that, almost DYING. So ya in govt medical schools you get the classic text book patients and you really can see the symptoms and learn a lot and its very one on one.
Whereas these poor people cant afford private clinics and the ones who can are really not that sick to begin with and even then in a private college you cant get as one on one with the cases you are lucky to get.
So ya I'm glad we dont have politics in RMC but I've heard its bad in some places but ya.. avoid the embroidering of your name on your coat at all costs!Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.December 17th, 2007, 07:49 PM #55
