I do not have the schedule at the moment because they are updating their website. I will attach a sample image. First semester has a lot of little courses, I think they might make a change next year but for us we had around 10 exams, and your schedule is more variable a week as there are a few core big courses like histology and then smaller courses like microbiology (intro) and public health. It had 6 hours of classes a day and 5 days a week. Second semester was alternating biochem and anatomy, 6 hours of lessons a day, 4 days a week. We had a few fridays off but most were spent doing electives.

Exams: There is exams in December (1-2 weeks before Christmas), there is 1-2 weeks of exams in April and then 1-2 weeks vacation. Then you have class till end of may/first week june and exams are june july September. There is always a 1-2 week gap between exams except at Christmas or if they are partials (sometimes you can have a partial exam like midway through anatomy).

Exams are mostly written but there are oral options for anatomy and biochem. We had written pre-exams for them, and then if you wait they will be oral.
