Course Description

Course Profile

The 6-year Medical Program is a full-time long-cycle program for high school graduates and college/university graduates. All teaching and medical training is conducted in English. Students earn the standard European requirement of 5700 hours and 360 ECTS credits and graduate with the professional title of Medical Doctor (MD). The diploma is recognized by the EU, UK, US, Canada and most other countries worldwide.

The first three years are pre-clinical studies (lectures and seminars). In clinical years (4th, 5th and 6th year), students receive clinical training in the MUW teaching hospitals, Medical Simulation Center, and internships. Medical students are also expected to acquire 660 hours of clinical training (clerkships) in the summer breaks. It is an integral part of the medical program and a prerequisite to obtaining an MD diploma.

Students interested in writing the USMLE (the United States Medical Licensing Examination) Step I are eligible once they have completed the 3-year pre-clinical curriculum. Upon completion of the 3-year clinical training, students can sit the USMLE Step II.
