Programme profile


Through this programme, students will become familiar with subjects, which are concerned with the recognition of causes and progression of illnesses, with their prevention, diagnosis, treatment and evaluation. The student will be capable after graduating of independent, expert specialisation and holistic intuitive observation of the human being and the problems associated with the processes of health and illness. In addition to the biomedical approach, each student should be enriched by a social view of the human being seen in the context of lifestyle, social status and personal adaptability.

The clinical disciplines are taught in the Faculty Hospital, a large teaching institution with 1396 beds. The equipment of the Hospital meets all contemporary standards required for a quality medical education.
