Subjects in each year of MBBS (Pakistan)

This post simply enlists subjects taught in each year of mbbs.

Please note, that in Pakistan mbbs is typically divided in to 5 years but 4 profs. First prof is divided into part one and part two, completing in two years, and then all other prof’s take 1 year each. After 5 years (4 profs) are complete, they are awarded the mbbs degree and they can start their house job (internship).

Some universities of Pakistan has already started to shift from annual system to semester and modular system. Also, some universities have started integrated study system, in which students learn relevant topics from almost all the subjects every year.

  1. Dear Nabeel Khan:

    I visited your site and was extremely impressed by your brilliance. I wish you continue to channel your energies in a positive manner. How many youth of brilliance are being consumed by mysticism is appalling. Iqbal lamented this in his lectures.

    I actually tried calling your number which is on one of your sites.

    Keep up the good work.

    With prayers that a brilliant son of Pakistan like you joins my team,
