Programme profile

This programme is entirely taught in English, and is designed so as to meet both American (USMLE) and European Union standards with its internationally accredited exams. UZMS also has working relationships with a number of university medical schools in Europe and North America, including University of Toronto, McGill, and the Mayo Clinic.

The curriculum comprises mandatory general premedical courses, as well as four major groups of professional courses such as: basic medical sciences, pre-clinical medicine, clinical medicine and public health. When compared to other medical schools in neighbouring countries, our advantage is an early integration of public health and health management courses in the undergraduate studies’ curriculum. Along with regular academic modules, electives are carried out solely by studying significant problems in medical practice. As far as the teaching is concerned, the focus is shifted from lectures to other, more practical forms of teaching, such as seminars, demonstrations, consultations and clinical audits, where students gain experience in clinical settings, as well as at the facilities of local health centres.

Programme content

The programme lasts 6 years or 12 semesters. During the first 3 years, students are engaged in pre-clinical courses (Anatomy, Histology, Chemistry, Physics, Cell Biology, Genetics, Physiology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Pathologic Physiology and Anatomy, Pharmacology, Microbiology, etc.). Contact with patients begins in the third year.

The remaining 3 years are composed of rotations at various departments, such as Internal Medicine, Neurology, Radiology, Dermatology, Psychiatry, Surgery, Paediatrics, Gynaecology and Obstetrics, Anaesthesiology, and others. During each academic year, students also enrol into two or three elective courses.


This programme will be recognised by GMC and Irish Medical Council
