PIMS housejob test 2012

Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad, conducted tests for houe jobs in all departments (medicine, surgery, paeds, gynae & obs, neonatology) last week.

The test includes basically scenario based MCQ’s and is very much practical. The test doesn’t include the crammed question and is more conceptual, discussing diseases and practical aspects of patients management. A very good approach and examination imho!

The candidates clearing the multiple choice questions part in PIMS housejob test were called for an interview later on and then given housejob in various departments of the hospital.

PIMS housejob test was quite transparent

Tests this year were very much transparent! Each candidate was given a carbon copy of his answer sheet which he can tally with the final result displayed on the result day so there was no chance of incorrect marking which was rumored last year.

PIMS housejob Interview

After that, the interview was just about seeing the candidate once and asking him which department he wants to join (among the available seats in each one) and not meant to test or ask him questions again.

Overall, the housejob tests this year were very much fair and fine.

Final list of house officers for each departments will be displayed tomorrow on 6th February 2012 and Joining will commence within couple of days.

Good luck to all those who got selected for the housejob!
