UHS Grants Official Approval to Exam Pattern Modifications

The University of Health Sciences (UHS) has approved changes to the exam format for the MS and MD postgraduate clinical degree programs. This decision was made in the 196th meeting of the Advanced Studies and Research Board (ASRB), chaired by Vice-Chancellor Prof Ahsan Waheed Rathore.

Under the new format, instead of having separate papers for different specializations in general medicine or general surgery, there will be a single paper. Also, questions related to specialties have been removed from the exam.

Now, there will be one combined exam paper for General Surgery, covering surgery and related specialties, and another for General Medicine, covering medicine and related fields. Each paper will have 100 multiple-choice questions.

For the Surgery paper (excluding Anesthesia), 70 questions will focus on general surgery principles, and 30 will cover basic sciences like Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, and Pathology.

The Anesthesia paper will consist of 100 questions, with 40 each from general medicine and general surgery, and 20 from basic sciences.

The unified paper for Medicine and Allied will have 70 questions on general medicine principles and 30 from basic sciences.

In Pediatrics, the IMM theory paper will include 70 questions on pediatric medicine principles and 30 on basic sciences. The new clinical examination format assigns 10 marks to each of the 10 Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) stations.
