AKU,Dow,KMDC, offer paid residencies. These are the institutes for which you must try first to get residency
• Aga Kahn Univeristy:
Entry test came in august and registrations open in july. You must appear in the test as it adds up your experience. Specialties they offer are ortho and operative. Test include all dental subjects mainly clinical ones plus some English vocab and after you clear the test you have to appear in the interview which basically is the evaluation of your personality. Do you match to their requirement? How confident are you and thats it! (information i collected from my seniors who r now residents there)
•Dow University of Health Sciences:
You just have to clear the test and acquire first position. Test came entirely from Dow Bcq pool (d one from which they give bcqs in their exams) so any of Dow graduate can easily do it as many bcqs even get repeated from semester paper (atleast i experienced it while giving ortho paper) so if u have friends of Dow contact them and unka b dimag khana parray ga [Basically for orthodontics: Profit, prosthodontics: Mckrakn + Zarb, oral surgery: Tucker, operative Dentistry: Summit, Taura bin ejad, Welbry. In books ki aik aik line parhnay pr u can secure highest marks]
•Karachi Medical & Dental College:
Test includes specialty + general knowledge and the main thing is interview ( told by a senior who is currently resident there)
•Fatima Jinnah Dental College:
They mainly take their own graduates+ its paid
•Alvi dental hospital:
currently they started residency in ortho + its paid
•Hamdard College of Medicine & Dentistry:
They started currently in operative (m doing here n
ALHUMDULILAH they are very co-operative plus my supervisor is a very humble n down to earth person ) its also paid (a good pay scale). It may start residency in prosthodontics in June or January. Test of operative included paedodontics, dental trauma, dental materials and oral pathology some bcqs from dentogist
Residency here is unpaid + without test only you need reference or availability of space + you have to take the materials, instruments by your own but the good thing u can switch from here if u get residency somewhere else in d first year.
:offers residency in operative. At my time i saw its add they were offering in their karachi Branch, i dont remember the name of place exactly and i dint appear in the test.
So i hope this info might help you and plz don’t loose hope. agr thorra waqt residency na milay to. Seats are limited and so many ones are competing just remember if u have passion and if its your destiny sooner or later you will achieve it.
Also before giving entry test of any institute, you must meet its residents, ask them about the test and take guidance from them (it is d key of clearing a test….
