Programme profile

This six year programme is comprised of ten academic/practical semesters and one-year (310 calendar days) of state clinical internships. Except for the fact that all tutorials, labs, lectures and examinations are conducted in English, the curriculum of the six-year medical studies in English is completely identical with the coursework pursued by Bulgarian medical students.

The first two years of the programme include an overview of fundamental or basic science courses. The first year is devoted to general understanding of biological, chemical and physical sciences applicable to the practice of medicine. Starting with the second year, the focus progressively narrows, channelling the studies towards those biomedical sciences that are most relevant for a practising physician.

The clinical years are what all medical students look forward to, a time when lectures and laboratories translate into patient care. The clinical studies examine the application of the biomedical sciences mastered during the first two years of medical school. The teaching from the third year onwards takes place exclusively in clinical settings and involves work with patients admitted for treatment at the University’s teaching hospitals.

Learning Bulgarian language is compulsory during the first three years of the program: students are required to learn Bulgarian in order to be able to communicate with patients, from the third year onwards.
