Palacky University, Olomouc




Palacky University, a public university in Olomouc, is one of the oldest universities in Central Europe: it was founded in 1573 and, apart from a hiatus between 1860 and 1946, has a continuous history since that date.

The university has almost 23,000 undergraduate students in its eight faculties: Theology; Medicine and Dentistry; Health Sciences; Philosophy; Science; Education; Physical Culture; Law

The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry has been running a study programme in General Medicine in the English langauge for the last 20 years, recently adding Dentistry as another programme taught in English. During these years, our graduates have successfully established themselves as well respected and sought after members of healthcare teams in numerous countries, from the USA and Canada, the UK, and Norway all the way to Malaysia and Japan. Results from USMLE tests show that our graduates have no trouble competing with the best students from the whole world, securing jobs even at the most prestigious clinics and universities, including the Mayo clinic and Harvard University
