Description Medical and healthcare study programmes are quite complicated in terms of branched structure and heterogeneous content. In logical sequence a lot of requirements and demands placed on students appear there. This paper focuses on an innovative way how to discover and understand complex curricula using modern information and communication technologies. We introduce an algorithm for curriculum metadata automatic processing -- automatic keyword extraction based on unsupervised approaches, and we demonstrate a real application during a process of innovation and optimization of medical education. The outputs of our pilot analysis represent systematic description of medical curriculum by three different approaches (centrality measures) used for relevant keywords extraction. Further evaluation by senior curriculum designers and guarantors is required to obtain an objective benchmark.
