Hai dr.mmu.
I passed prometric ortho to apply for viva and had to given in oman only or it can be given in india too.kindly suggest. Thanks.

Hii dr.mmu,

           The viva would be conducted by a panel of examiners from the govt hospitals. They may ask anything from any speciality at GP level, but mostly from emergency medicine and general medicine. Go through Oxford handbook of emergency medicine and clinical specialities. all the best.

what is the syllabus/ which book is good for prometic exam, anybody have mock test paper

Hello ill be sotting for viva for general practice what are they going to ask and what books are needed to study kindly tell

Hi.. for preparing it is best to grab on oxford handbook of clinical medicine and emergency medicine... Viva .... They ask clinical scenarios... They act as they are the patients... For me they asked .... Fever with rash in children.... What all we will ask de parents... what all we will check in the patients. How will u manage if that child starts convulsing...and how about treating dehydration in that child. Another  doctor asked me an unconscious pt comes to u in ur clinic. U are alone .. how will u manage.... The answer they expect us to give is ....check the vitals and glucose level..then they said Bp is 200/100 and nrml glucose.  Thiis is a  case of hypertensive emergency... i would start on oxygen and gain iv acess and immediately refer the pt to higher centre. Next there was a pharmacist. Asked diclofenac dose,and what drug u will give along with dt fr low back ache. U should definitely learn dose of all drugs.... Diazepam suppositry dose, diclofenac tablet and injection dose.amoxicillin and paracetamol dose. Some other questions were... Child with earache ,man with  earache . Man with redeye.  Epigastric pain. AF, ACS, DKA, hypoglycemia,VT,preclampsia. Headinjury. And know about poisoning that can cause hyperthermia and convulsions..  when a child comes with convulsion first time, how will u manage... Make sure u say i will check salicylate ,amphetamine,pmol level..

Hello, I want some guidance regarding viva exam for gynaecologists? Do they stick to topics & scenarios related to "gynae & obs only" or they ask any scenario covering general medicine,surgery,paeds.....
Is it an OSCE based exam or long cases or both?
Is viva exam date taken in the same way as written exam date (means the candidate herself/himself chooses an exam date)

Hi Sunita,
Contact me, I  have people to guide you on this. There is Vacancy for Gyno at present.
