The curricula of the two study programmes, General Medicine and Dentistry, are identical to those pursued by Czech medical students, apart from being taught in English. They conform to the European Union standards. The six-year General Medicine programme has also been accredited by the USA, Canada and Malaysia, to name only those countries most students come from. During the first three years of both programmes, students have compulsory classes in the Czech language. A good grasp of Czech is required for communication with patients and with colleagues in the wards, such as nurses, who may speak only Czech.
The first four semesters of the General Medicine study programme mainly cover theoretical subjects (Anatomy, Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Histology, Physiology). Preclinical subjects (Pathology, Microbiology, Pharmacology) are taught in semesters 5-7. Clinical subjects are introduced in the following semesters (Internal Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Neurology) together with subjects associated with public health care (Social Medicine, Medical Law). The whole sixth year is devoted to bedside training in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Gynaecology and Obstetrics. The programme concludes in the 11th and 12th semesters with final state examinations in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and Preventive Medicine.
Similarly, the study of Dentistry is divided into theoretical subjects (Anatomy, Physiology, Histology and Embryology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysics), and preclinical and clinical subjects (Microbiology, Pharmacology, Pathological Physiology, Surgery, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry).
The main emphasis is on specialized subjects such as Preventive Dentistry and Cariology, Preclinical Dentistry, Prosthetic Technology, Dental Radiology, Orthodontics, Endodontics, Periodontics, Preservative Dentistry and Oral Surgery. A crucial part of the programme is devoted to practical training. The study plan also includes courses on management, ethics, legislation and social aspects of dentistry. The Dentistry study programme is concluded with final state examinations in Preservative Dentistry, Orthodontics and Prosthetics, and Oral Surgery.
At the graduation ceremony, the graduates in General Medicine and Dentistry are awarded the degree Doctor of General Medicine (Medicinae Universae Doctor, abbreviated as MUDr., equivalent to M.D.) and Doctor of Dentistry (Medicinae Dentium Doctor, abbreviated as MDDr.), respectively. Graduates who are EU citizens may then practise medicine or dentistry within all countries of the European Economic Area. Graduates who are not EU citizens practise world-wide in countries where our Faculty is recognised.
