You might’ve stumbled upon here by mistake, or you’re actually that one miracle person who reads terms and regulations before they hit “agree”
This website is created by Nada Alhassan, a perfectionist-procrastinator, and a graduate from King Saud bin AbdulAziz University for Health Sciences in Riyadh with a bachelor of medicine and bachelor of surgery (MBBS). Ever since I started studying (rumor has it even in utero) I couldn’t study without summarizing everything I read, putting it in my own words, and organizing it the way it makes sense to me. So, I started sharing my notes with close friends, colleagues, my batch, other batches, and other universities. Some say they have some magical abilities in saving lives.
I’m grateful for the following which have lead me to creating this website:
- My familia, for bearing with my mood swings during the past 6 years (and what’s yet to come), and accepting my use of studying as an excuse whenever I didn’t feel like participating in social gatherings.
- The whole of batch 11
- Renad in specific for initiating, pushing, and insisting.
- For Thekra, Futun, Bushra, and Renad for allowing me to annoy them about every detail and wishing they have never given me face.
- For Nesrin, a fellow medical student from Jeddah, whom I met during last year’s hajj season and we kept in contact ever since. And one year later, I saw her snapchat story where she’s studying from my notes. That was a moment, to say the least.
- And you, who’s still reading the list; sure you’re not lost? there’s always a way back..
- This is not intended in any way, shape, or form to be a “respectable” reference, it’s an effort of one small human, and mistakes are part of being human. (What I’m trying to say is, don’t blame me if you get an F in that OSCE)
- Although every information here is taken from either a book, video, lecture, or something one of our doctors have mentioned during the teaching sessions; still, mistakes do happen. Take it with a grain of salt or leave it.
- For the clinical skills reference:
- 90% from batch 9 files, which we will forever be grateful for
- 5% from geekymedics and other random youtube videos
- 5% from our doctors notes
- Please note, the clinical skills are tailored according to our OSCE exams we had, which might not be applicable to your OSCE exam.
- It goes without saying that this is an open forum and y’all are invited, if you find any mistake in any of the topics please let me know! It will be corrected and updated immediately. منكم وإليكم
