General Medicine

Long term Master's degree in full-time form. The language of instruction is Czech.

The programme can be studied only as a single subject.

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.

Preclinical practice and preclinical lectures can be attended in the theoretical departments of the Faculty of Medicine or with the consent of the relevant course guarantor abroad. In this case, the course guarantor will grant recognition of the course after comparing the syllabus of the relevant curriculum course with the course's syllabus at the host institution.

Clinical practice and clinical lectures can be attended in the faculty hospitals or with the consent of the relevant course guarantor at an institution abroad. In this case, the course guarantor will grant recognition of the course after comparing the syllabus of the relevant curriculum course with the course's syllabus at the host institution. Students submit either an official transcript issued by the host institution or a logbook with an exact defined list of clinical performances after completing a mobility stay abroad.

Student mobilities abroad are always administered under official mobility programmes and registered in the student’s study evidence in the Information System of Masaryk University (IS MU).

Recognition of course completion (preclinical and clinical) at a foreign institution is always individually assessed and recognized by the Vice-Dean for International Affairs and International Students. It is confirmed in a mobility programme agreement signed by three parties (a student, Vice-Dean for International Affairs and International Students at FM MU, and a responsible person at a foreign institution).
