Programme profile

Charles University: First Faculty of Medicine

The First Faculty of Medicine has been a part of Charles University since its foundation in 1348 and is the oldest medical faculty in Central Europe. The basic purpose of the faculty is to train medical doctors in such a way as to provide them with a broad general medical education, and a thorough theoretical grounding (to a depth is a tough but excellent preparation for future medical careers), so that they are able to think and communicate scientifically and medically, and offer basic medical care. The faculty has long taught medicine based on a traditional model of three years theoretical plus three years practical training, but is introducing more and more practical training in recent years. Its problem-bsed learning approach in later years is particularly effective.

Students of the faculty hav an impressively high success rate in the USMLE Examinations.

This is one of five medical faculties at Charles University. Each has their own separate admissions process and fee structure. The First Faculty is said to be the most 'prestigious' of the five Prague faculties.
