Mannu,

Hello. I am wondering how ur experience has been soo far. I am thinking about applying to the 6 year program as well. By completing pre-med courses at lodz, is it more difficult to get licensed in certain states in the US?

Thank You!

Hi there,

My experience here has been a very good one overall, including the program itself, the city and the people. There are a handful of indians here and there hasnt been any complaints of racism so far as to my knowledge.

By completing your pre-med/ med here i do not believe it is more difficult to get into rotations in the US. The only thing here is that they do not prepare you for USMLE's you have to study for those on your own, and how well you do determines your rotations in the US.

As for apartments, i do not have an exact cost but your probably looking at $400-500US a month. The dorms are pretty good but your pets are not allowed. The language barrier is not that bad, most of the polish students that go to school here can speak english. Elderly people cannot, but in both the 6 year and 4 year program you are required to take Polish as a course which helps, because you learn the basics to get you around the city.

Hope that helps,

Mannu

thanks :D that does help, i am even more excited about going there. i know some friends that are going to schools in the caribbean and they also say they do not prepare you for the USMLE, i don't THINK many schools do not prepare you for it (but could be wrong), in my opinion it is all self learned anyways. The school i go to now has a medical school and i have a roommate that is in the O.D. program and she says too that everything is self learned it will not be handed to you, the proffesors basically quide you thru.
another question........do you know when the summer break startes there, around when? i have to come back to America to take one more class here and forgot to even ask if the breaks are the same as America, since they don't start at the same time (for me will be October 1st). if you know this info it is greatly appreciated :)
what is the age range over there i hear there is an older crowd? (not that it would matter on my education, but just curious). i also heard that since we would be international students we could get discounts on flights to visit home, is this right? :confused:


thanks a bunch ^__^

Summer break here usually start July 1, maybe even late June depending on when finish your finals and then school starts again first week of Ocotber.

People here are actually fairly young, the city is full of universities and many young students are studying here presently.

Student discounts are available on select flights, LOT which is a Polish airline is one carrier that gives discounts and if im not mistaken i think Air canada might aswell, but im not too sure.

Best regards,

Thanks for your help so far. Do you know if Lodz is a California approved school, thus allowing graduates to sit for licensure? I live in California and know that they are very selective as to which foreign medical schools they accept. Also, what do you anticipate your total cost to be for school at Lodz? Did you have any college or pre-med courses prior to admission into the 6 year program.

Thanks Again!!

As of right now this University is not approved by California for the enlgish speaking program. However there are a few students here who are in the 3rd year of the 4th year program that are also from California, they are working with the University and the Alliance institute of Medicine so that it can be California approved fairly soon as they would also liked to be able to recieve licensure there.

I took a few pre-med courses but the only requirement for the 6 year program is that you have to have graduated from highschool.

The 4 year program requires that you complete a certain number of pre-med courses before being accpeted.

Mannu

Mannu,

I'm glad I read your post on here. I've just started the application process with AIM. Don't know if I'm gonna be able to get in (that is, if I'm too late in the year). But I've applied for the 6 year program. I think it's pretty easy to get in from an academic standpoint, though.
I'll be graduating from college in August, and getting in would be a great gift for me!
I suppose I'll be a year behind you in things if all works out.
Cheers!

Michael

If you don't mind me asking why would you apply for the 6 year program if you are graduating college in may ?

I'm glad that things are going well for you at Lodz. I was just wondering...are there many Canadian students attending Lodz through AIM??

Thanks!

hey

is anyone else on here kind of shocked that the AIM/MUL people want around $16,000 for a year's tuition whereas in the actual website for the Medical University of Lodz, tuition is EUR 7000. now, i'm no expert on conversion rates, but something doesn't add up.

on the website they give you the cost per semester not annually and when they send you the yearly estimate they include other exspensives such as living and orientation fee. the first year is also more then the second because of seat fee, orientation fee, lab fee....and ect. it is still a lot cheaper then most medical school :rolleyes: . here at my school (in America) one year of medical school is 34,000 and that is just tuition not including living, book, food, gas....ect.

medmag

i realize that they include other costs. i've read over all the stuff on the website and the infor AIM sent me, but i'm talking only about tuition, which means forget about the cost of living, orientation, etc. focus on tuition. there's about $6,800 discrepancy in TUITION. i realize that they agent (in this case, AIM) wants to make money, but $27,000 (think 4 years) is kind of a lot. it's not that i have a problem with paying the amount. i'm just wondering if it's really worth it applying through AIM versus applying straight to the school. are the benefits (i.e. rotations in the US at hospitals they don't even give us the names of until we send the seat-deposit) worth it?

all4ui smile,
which american school do you go to?

I was wondering ~ how many people actually get to do their rotations in the US. Do they get the rotations in the US if they pass their USMLEs?

Also, did you apply through AIM? If you did, do they charge you extra once you're there? I read on this forum about how they asked you to pay an extra $4000? How much truth is there to this

Thanks!

Hello to everyone,

I have just been accepted into the 4 year MD program at Lodz and I am from Australia. I would like to know if the 4 year graduates get the same degree i.e. MD as the 6 year graduates. Also does anyone know any Lodz graduates who are practicing in the UK, because that is where I would like to do my clinical if possible and practice for while before returning back home to Australia. Thank you for your help.

I would also like to know about the tuition difference from AIM to the actual University. I am not sure if I have calculated it correctly but on the website for the University it says that it costs 10,000 Euro's/Year. I am assuming that includes accomodations.

Then on the AIM website, it says that it will cost 10,000 US/SEMESTER
Why are the AIM students being charged 10,000/Semester if the university itself charges its students who apply directly 10,000 for the entire YEAR???????? Please answer this if you know and I hope its not simply because they are able to set up the clinical rotations in the US.

its not exactly half that the school directly charges because of the conversion...1 euro to 1.46 dollars...but AIM has to get as much money has they can for their "admin work"

Yes....to do rotations in the US, you must pass step 1. I"m not sure if that is a req' of the school or the hospital.

DO NOT COME TO LODZ. The Administration Office in Lodz and at AIM are the most corrupt people I have ever seen in my life. Im advising you strongly not to attend. They will try to convince that what Im saying on the internet is not true. But I lived here and I have seen and heard all the stories. GO TO LUBLIN or anywhere else but dont come to Lodz
