We’re thrilled to announce that the INI CET May ’22 exam saw as many as 5 Rankers from DocTutorials!

As a medical coaching institute of substance and solidity in the country, what could be sweeter for us than the ring of success of our students?

In this blog post we are happy to introduce to you to these five of our INI CET Top Rankers who made us so proud.

And what’s more, they have named DocTutorials coaching as an important factor in their success. Every ranker has found something different and of great value from the DocTutorials coaching programme.

This feels wonderful because it has always been our objective to help each student gain the best from us, whatever their areas of strength or interest.

So, say “Hello” to out INI CET May ’22 Rankers, and hear what they say in return about how we helped them …

What’s so special about the INI CET exams?

The INI CET is an acronym for the unabbreviated form – Institute of National Importance Combined Entrance Test. It is an exam conducted by AIIMS, India’s premier medical institution.

Have you been wondering why students apply themselves so diligently for the INI CET exam? It’s because this entrance test allows candidates to get admission to MD, DM, MS, MDS, and Master of Chirurgiae. To get to these courses, students need to enter the portals of several prestigious medical institutions of national repute via the INI CET exam.

Staying acquainted with the INI CET 2022 syllabus is very important to students, especially those who want to top the exams. By becoming aware of the contents that need to be covered for this exam, and by being coached assiduously to score high marks, students can enhance their chances for subsequent admissions to some of the most coveted post-graduate studies of their choice.

The three main subjects that comprise the syllabus of INI CET are pre-clinical phase, para-clinical phase, and clinical phase. These phases can be further divided into multiple sub-topics for clarity.

DocTutorials prepares students for all the main and sub-topics of the INI CET exam.

Was the INI CET May ’22 tough to crack? “No” say our five Rankers …

Our past students who have appeared for the INI CET exams in the previous sessions, and the current Rankers of the May ’22 exam, believe that the INI CET test has a moderate difficulty level … it’s not too tough. Nevertheless, every exam is a hurdle to cross from tension to triumph. In fact, the more you prepare for the exam’s unique set of questions, the higher are your chances of scoring good marks.

So, without further ado, here are the top five Rankers of May ’22 … great going students, and good wishes for your glorious future!

Dr Armaan Saith
Rank 9

Dr Shagun Batra
Rank 13

Dr Arjun
Rank 86

Dr Sabyasachi Debata
Rank 89

Dr Yuva Sai Kumar
Rank 16

What did these Rankers like most from the DocTutorials preparation process?

Here are some terrific quotes from some of them – and do view the full videos that follow each quote too!

Dr Armaan Saith is a serious young man who approaches his studies and exams with astute thinking. He admitted that the INI CET May ’22 exams were slightly atypical from the usual exam pattern, as past questions didn’t recur as expected. He says till the end he never quite knew how well he had fared. You had to have a broad grasp of your subject and not just question-level preparedness, he avers. He also says the Grand Tests of DocTutorials helped immensely in his getting the INI CET 9th Rank.

“Initially I thought that I’ll finish the entire syllabus and then I’ll attempt a Grand Test. But as my internship progressed, I knew that would never happen … I would think that all my syllabus is done and never attempt a test.

Initially that feeling is a bit uncomfortable of attempting the test because we think that we want to be perfect in all the answers, but then compared to what we could do on the exact exam day it is always better to be in practice … because the more Grand Tests we do, the less we feel on the exam day that, “Oh, it’s a special test!”

On the exam day I only felt that I’m going for just another test, and I was calmer because I thought that I’ve given more Grand Tests. It doesn’t feel as if I’m doing something new. So that is the importance of a Grand Test … because first it tells us our relative position amongst our peers; and second, on that day we don’t feel scared or nervous of the exam.”

Dr Armaan Saith has even more to say about the DocTutorials course in this full video … watch it.

Dr Shagun Batra is a student who absolutely loves the field of Medicine. She toyed for a while between Paediatrics and Medicine, but eventually Medicine won out as her first love. She agrees with the faculty at DocTutorials that Medicine becomes interesting because it involves diagnosis – and the approach to diagnosis is almost like solving a puzzle. In fact, to Dr Shagun, it feels like being a Sherlock Holmes. Doubtless, her success at the INI CET May ’22 has been largely due to the attitude towards discipline that studying with DocTutorials has instilled in her. Read her words …

“I think the most important thing is to be disciplined because motivation is very short-lived. You can be motivated for a day, for a week … but discipline is something that will carry you for years.

It’s not like you should stop enjoying your life. You have to enjoy your MBBS. You even have to enjoy an Internship. But you need to know where to draw the line between enjoying and studying, and I think when you learn to strike that balance everything will be a very easy ride for you.

You should be consistent throughout your MBBS years. Entrance exams don’t test what you learned in the last one year, they test what you’ve been learning for the last five and a half years – so consistency and discipline are very important.”

Dr Shagun Batra has a lot more to say about the DocTutorials course in this full video … watch it.

Dr Arjun is from Kerala. He completed his MBBS from Alapuzha and he gave his INI CET exam thrice, before he got the boost needed to get his excellent rank this May ’22. His dream, he says, was to somehow get into AIIMS, and for that he was willing to try the exam as many times as it would take. This is what he says helped him the most.

“It has been quite difficult – it’s not easy as all of us know. It takes a lot of determination and at times I felt doubtful whether I’ll reach there or not. I didn’t know. At these times, the faculty at DocTutorials, they were of immense help.

They provided not only educational support but also mental support. At times, when we were doubting ourselves, we had such good interactions with the teachers who helped us a lot through the journey. I really thank all of you for that.

The one thing we can do is always believe in ourselves and do our best. We can try to find out where we are going wrong. For example, the last time I attempted the exam, I had not done the previous years’ questions that much as I did this time. Although this time it was not that much of a repeat type of question paper, but still it provided a lot of use in the examination knowing the topics from which previous years’ questions were asked.”

Dr Arjun has much more to say about the DocTutorials course in this full video … watch it.

Coming soon … more videos and quotes from the other Rankers!

Just stay committed and diligent, with stars in your eyes, on your journey towards higher degrees of success.

Social Media For Medical Professionals (And Medical Practices)

Social media for medical professionals and practices is a great boon. In many countries, including India, doctors cannot advertise themselves freely. Even if the law should allow it, people would frown on the practice.

But the social media channels are fertile ground for healthcare providers to build their brands and practices through indirect means.

As a medical consultant, you can enhance your thought-leadership through your opinion, build your reach through the quality of content you put out and interact with other specialists in whose company you can shine.

There are many benefits for the medical fraternity in using social media. But there are some areas to be extremely careful about, too.

This article hopes to keep you, the healthcare practitioner, aware of the best ways to use social media to great advantage. All areas of your career should win – your medical practice, your professional brand, your patients and your industry as a whole.

Areas where the medical field can effectively use social media

Social channels are great to work with in situations like these below:

Gaining more citizen engagement and participation in health concerns

Doctors, individually and as a group, can use social media to raise public awareness about health and fitness in general – or about certain diseases in particular. They can answer common FAQs from patients and educate people by sharing valuable content.

Monitoring specific healthcare or cause campaigns at certain peak periods

There are times of the year when hospitals may lead disease-specific or cause-specific campaigns, and a lot of public health monitoring on that topic needs to take place. Social media can help combat misinformation and encourage people’s participation. In cases when campaigns are about a medical crisis (like the recent Covid -19 pandemic), they can help in crisis communication.

Professional networking is among the significant benefits of social media

There is so much evolution in medical technology that doctors can often best keep pace by engaging with other doctors. Social media can cut short professional upskilling time. There could also be times when compliances may change, or special research recruitment drives may be needed, when the use of social media can be indispensable.

Patient care is the most obvious and best use of social media

Here, it is not about individual patients and their health issues but about collective education on the support, facilities, education and public health programmes that patients as groups can avail of.

Best practices to follow when medical professionals use social media

The ideas that work best are listed here …

Set some clear goals for your social media usage as a health professional

Are you planning to use social media to increase awareness of your brand and your expertise? Are you hoping to convey your ideas to others in your industry so that you can all effectively lobby for a worthwhile cause? Are you interested in networking across medical specialisations with experts in diverse fields to enlarge your knowledge base? If you know your goals, you can use social media to gain traction on those targets.

Use the most professional online tone of voice and aim to be authentic

The medical profession thrives on public trust. The authenticity of your tone of voice is at the base of such public confidence in you. Know your audience. Take time to listen to their communities on social media. Have a clear message and deliver it with authority. Cover both the pros and cons of any topic. Be unbiased, factual, honest and sincere.

Limit your own screen time if you’re a very busy doctor and your family needs you

Nothing can be worse for families of medicare consultants if they have to put up with their irregular working hours and also their social media preoccupations. You are a doctor, and you should be the one to tell other people when enough screen time is enough.

Areas that medicare personnel should avoid when using social media

These are some of the big pitfalls to steer clear of …

Don’t offer medical advice to anybody online, not even a standard prescription

As a trained doctor, you have already been taught never to provide any casual medical remedies without looking into the details of any case. It’s the same rule that applies to conversations on social media. If someone asks, “Can we take two paracetamol tablets when a migraine starts?” your answer should be: “Please consult your doctor.”

Be careful when posting about patients – maintain doctor-patient confidentiality

Don’t ever be tempted to allude to a case study if it involves an actual case you have been involved with. It’s far easier to lose trust online than build trust. In extreme cases, doctors have even lost their licences to practice after getting careless with their social postings. So, be very careful.

Avoid conflicts of interest with products or brands that may later say you endorsed them

Never take the names of any brands or products in your social posts or interactions. You never know when a product may misuse your small mistake of mentioning a brand in passing as a medical endorsement in the public domain. For example, don’t say: “I got on my XYZ Treadmill this morning, and guess what …” Next thing you know, people will believe you are pushing that brand.

Some great global social networks for medical professionals

Sermo

This site is amongst the most popular for healthcare providers online. Its focus is to connect verified and credentialed physicians from around 150 countries worldwide. It even has a “virtual doctors lounge” that is very popular.

Doximity

This site targets U.S. based physicians in all speciality areas, with over 70% of all U.S. doctors signed up for membership. But its blog is sought after by other doctors from across the world who want to know the latest from the U.S.

Figure1

This resource allows healthcare providers from all over the world to share anonymous images of an ailment, such as x-rays, and compare them to other similar images available on the site. This really helps doctors in remote locations who may be treating patients with rare disorders for which they have no historical data to fall back on. This explains the site’s immense popularity.

WeMedUp

This medical social site has a job board for doctors and hospitals, plus information on healthcare-related events. It stays up-to-date with advancements in medicine.

Some great Indian social networks for healthcare providers

This is a healthcare news and updates app. It also allows access to journals, case studies, medical guidelines and video interviews with eminent physicians. There is even a separate sub-section called Curofy MCQ for medical students.

DailyRounds

In summary …

There are no two opinions about it. If used with care and professional ethics, social media can be a very useful communication tool for medical professionals and practices.

To medical students, especially, social media sites and apps can be great places to get immersed in the culture of top-notch medical traditions. If you’re a medical student, leverage social media – and get inspired to reach for those higher degrees of success.
