Good merit is important for PG Exams . Orthopedics is a minor Subject. But it is an important component of Post graduate Medical exams and cannot be ignored. Each and Every mark is important in this competitive age.

We recommend students to take note of most important and high yield topics in orthopedics  as going too deep in subspecialties would not be wise enough to start with.

There are almost 19 subjects to be prepared and some subjects are classified as major subjects. So they need to be given more importance, time and priority.

The focus now is more on clinical aspects. Students need to prepare clinically.

Students have to do well in all branches Major as well as minor.



What is on students mind always?



  • What are the Most frequently asked Topics?
  • What are the High yield Topics?
  • What are the Future Expectant Topics?
