Hi Geeljire I am from maraykanka and am seriously considering studying medicine in Pakistan. I was just wondering if you could let me know how you are enjoying the course and what subjects you study in first year (like is there a lot of chemistry/physics? or more human biology associated topics like genetics etc.) Also, what drew you to Pakistan and did it take you long to adjust? I would also appreciate any detailed information about the curriculum for 1st/2nd year. I appreciate that you are offering your help and you can get back to me on this post. Thanks again, I look forward to hearing from you
Good to hear from a potential student Asma. It would be nice to have some more Somali students here from the Maraykanka. The majority of Somali students here are from Somalia , Arabta or Yurubta. The university does teach us in English though. It will take you a while to understand the Pakistani accent and the way they talk, but once done, you will get the hang of it. There is no biology or physics in the first year of M.B.B.S. Our biggest subjects are Biochemistry, Histology, Anatomy and Physiology. You also have embryology which can be difficult. Depends on you. You can get a more detailed look at the curriculum for all 5 years through the website for the university.
The town in which I stay itself is small and really quiet in winter. It is a tourist town and it comes alive in summer. I am still in my first year though this is my second summer here and it has been really good already. We are currently preparing for exams as well so not that much times to enjoy the good weather and other stuff.
I came to Pakistan because I could speak a little Urdu already and good value for money. The language is difficult and makes no sense in the beginning but stick with it and you will get better. The university does provide classes for Pakistani-studies in Urdu for 2 years.
I hope that helps. If any more info is needed, then just let me know!
Good lucky to all of us!!!!
yup,Paki is great place to study medicine as it has some of the finest universities in the world... one of the good things about the place is that the number of patients u get to see in your clinical rounds is second to none ..its cheap to live here,cheap to get any number of books u desire! i have at least 3 books for every subject with different authors...and imagine the wealth of knowledge that will be at your disposal! as geeljire said the language is a bit of hindrance but no doctor will speak the local language during lectures or at the wards... but this Pakistan studies has been eliminated from the curriculum in most of the medical universities to give students more time to concentrate on other subjects....
well in most uni-s they do anatomy,physiology and biochemistry in the first 2 years...its like they divide these subjects into 2 parts.... like anatomy u will need to do upper limb,lower limb,general embryology,general anatomy,and histology plus neuroanatomy(detailed study of CNS and its clinical s)...then when u pass to second year u will do head and neck(everything from the glands to the Eustachian tube to foremen ), thorax,abdomen,pelvis and perineum ...plus special embryo...and systemic histology...the same goes for physio and biochem......and when u come to 3rd year,oh my god, u start feeling like DOCTOR! Pathology and all those diseases to study will make u absorb the whole thing and interesting and waited to this for long..and believe it was worthwhile!...pharmacology is wonderful and microbiology is like being told to memorize the names of the people who live China!!!... but once it goes to your cerebrum...you will just die with it..it will be fixed right there!!...
and one advice i wanna give is you go and read DOCTORS by Erich Segal , i read it just before i started my first year..it makes u feel great!!
all da best and always remember as ibna-batuta put it " medicine is not a taught subject,its a learn t subject!!!....
Students are required upon entering first year in B.Pharm. studies to take introductory courses in the area of knowledge of pharmaceutical sciences with general education.
Fundamental courses in the field of humanities (Islamic Learning or Pakistan Studies), social sciences (Sociology and Economics), natural sciences (Physiology, Biochemistry, Chemistry and Microbiology), and mathematical sciences (Mathematics and Statistics) are given in order to ensure that the students of pharmacy have a well rounded education in general, both in liberal arts and science. Although all the courses are compulsory throughout B.Pharm. course duration of 4 years.
The curriculum is so designed to provide basic knowledge in the very first year, which enhances to some extent in the second year along with professional orientation of drug substances, ultimately leading to the total professional learning of pharmacy subjects in third and forth years.
This approach successively builds the under-graduate program in pharmacy and prepares the students to acquire knowledge in Pharmacognosy, Pharmacology, Toxicology, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Microbiology, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Quality Control, Medicinal Chemistry, Spectroscopy of Natural Products, Pharmaceutical Technology, Industrial Pharmacy, Clinical and Hospital Pharmacy, Pharmaceutical Management and Jurisprudence, Retail Pharmacy, Cosmetology, Physical Pharmacy, Bio-Pharmaceutics and Pharmacokinetics.
It can be visualized that undergraduate course in pharmacy has a pyramid like structure, consequently leading to understand drug molecules in all its detail and entirety.
At the end of forth year, the students are provided training either in the industry or hospital to acquaints them with practical aspect of the profession and to expose them with real practice. which is quite amply reflected in their program of studies.
Now the B-pharmacy course was upgraded to Pharm.D in 2003. Pharm.D in Pakistan is a professional bachelor degree consisting of 5 years i.e. 10 semesters. most universities in Pakistan are offering the Pharm.D program such as Karachi University, Dow College of Pharmacy etc. the qualified institutes are recognized by the Pakistan Pharmacy Council.
