MBBS syllabus, courses and subjects

By on April 13, 2013 with 10 Comments


MBBS stands for Bachelors of Medicine and Surgery. It is the first degree in medical field in which student enroll after completing F.Sc or A levels. The duration of MBBS in Pakistan 5 years. It has four annual examinations with the first annual after the first two years. The annual examinations are called Professionals.

Till a few years ago getting admission into a medical college was really tough and around 900 marks in intermediate were required. It still holds true for good Government run medical colleges like King Edward, RMC, Fatima Jinnah etc, however in the last 5 years around 80 to 100 medical colleges were approved by PMDC. It is very easy to get admission in a private medical college. The draw back is that the fee is around Rs 500,000 to Rs 600,000 per year. Over all its a sorry state of affairs, as undeserving student who do not have the aptitude or skill to become a good doctor end up in private medical colleges if they have money (or their parents), while poor students who are hard working but cant make it in a Government run medical college cannot study medicine. This situation should be rectified by PMDC who should make it mandatory for all private medical colleges to admit at least 30 % students on full scholarship.

Here are the list of subjects and syllabus for the MBBS program as approved by PMDC

          Dear Tanveer,
          You have low marks in the examination, if you get a much better percentage, then you can apply to the Agha Khan foundation for financial help. I am sure they will help you out, but first you have to get better marks,
          Cannot help you more on this. Try HEC website for need based scholarships if you belong to a backward area of Pakistan.
