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.

However, here I will enlist the classical pattern of dividing subjects in annual divisions for mbbs, the classical way! Please note, this list only lists the names of subjects that students have to appear in exams for, universities start teaching various subjects earlier too (medicine starting in 3rd year for example!)

  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,

  3. Actually i had to write a note on subjects taught in MBBS in Pakistan. :)

    • you’re welcome Zunaira :) btw, that note was being written for ?

  4. I am doing biomedicle sciences from uni of salford in there any way that I can have less years than normal 5 years if I start mbbs after my biomedical sciences

    • Imtiaz I’m not sure if there’s any such policy to reduce the total numbers of years for someone who’ve done biomedicine, however please visit PMDC or UHS or any medical college yourself to clear your doubts and also update us here.

      Options for you could be completing mbbs equivalent from any other country and then appearing in PM & DC exam in Pakistan, which once qualified, allows you to practice as a doctor in Pakistan too.

  5. Sir 1st year MBBS ki books kon sy ha or 2st year ki

    • Books are almost same for 1st and 2nd year. Depends on your professor how they want to divide the course.

  6. Hello Dr Nabeel, Is there some way I can contact you? I am studying MBBS in China and there are some questions I’d like to ask.
