Masaryk University Medical Faculty,
six-year programme of study in General Medicine
Brno, Czech Republic
The Faculty of Medicine is a school much sought after by international students who have the possibility of studying here in the English language. Our students have the opportunity to study at the most modern Campus in central Europe. The new Campus offers a modern environment with the latest audiovisual equipment. A library with a large reading room and smaller, more intimate reading rooms is the heart of the campus. The users of the library have multidisciplinary and specialized resources at their disposal. Located in the immediate vicinity of the campus, a shopping and catering centre enhances student life and studies at the Faculty of Medicine. See Virtual Campus tour.
Students can participate in academic experiences abroad via Erasmus programme and active recognized student organization (IFMSA - International Federation of Medical Students Association), which arranges for vacationing student scientific and clinical practice outside the Czech Republic and Europe. Currently there are over 130 positions available for students to practice at international venues.
The curriculum for General Medicine leads to a diploma degree in "Medicinae Universae Doctor" (abbreviated to MUDr., placed in front of the holder’s name). MUDr. is equivalent to M.D., i.e. Doctor of Medicine.
Tuition is through the medium of English. Students are also obliged to undertake training and pass examinations in the Czech language at the end of their first, second, third, and fourth years of study. This is necessary in order to be able to communicate with patients in Czech once they enter practical clinical training in hospitals.
Our degrees are fully recognized in the EU, the USA and in most other countries. Our Faculty of Medicine is listed in the IMED - FAIMER International Medical Education Directory and in the AVICENNA Directory for medicine
