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!)
