General Medicine

What will you learn?

This six-year full-time Master’s study programme is designed to prepare students for the medical profession. By completing their studies, students earn the MUDr. (Doctor of General Medicine) degree. The programme is designed for graduates of secondary schools completed with a school-leaving examination. In the course of the first two years, the curriculum includes primarily theoretical courses (Biology, Biophysics, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Anatomy, Histology, and Physiology). To be able to complete these courses, students need excellent knowledge of science subjects at grammar school level. The classes consist of lectures, laboratory practicals, and seminars.

Practical training

In the course of the fourth and fifth years, students complete internships at individual clinics and attend lectures that complement the clinical instruction. During the last year of studies, students attend pre-graduation practical training, working at clinics and departments under the supervision of experienced physicians. In the course of the studies, students also complete 4 blocks of summer practical training where they learn about the operation of healthcare facilities and procedures used in practice.
