    Medical school in Czech Republic, HOW TO?

    Advertisements



    Hello
    I am 17 years old and live in the UK
    my passion has always been in studying medicine, and until recently, i wanted to go to a medical school in the UK, kings, notts etc...
    I recently heard from my brother that he has a friend that studies medicine in the Czech republic, I was immediately very interested, and the idea of studying abroad appealed greatly to me.
    Immediately I did some research and found out about some medical schools in Czech that taught medicine in English, unfortunately, I could not find any other information regarding the process of applying,entrance requirements(UK qualifications),competitiveness,accommodation and anything else essential for a student from the UK.
    Any one who can provide even the most basic information for the whole process of studying abroad will be greatly appreciated because I am very interested in studying in the Czech republic

    kind regards


    Sanatha

    P.S. an email address or another site regarding information, will also help a great deal.

    There is a wealth of information about CZ med schools on this site... simply do a search and you will find plenty to get you started. You can also find a few of the schools listed here:

    Thank you so much devildoc
    this information helped a lot.
    so the admissions is solely based on the entrance exams?
    do secondary school grades pay no part at all?

    thanks

    I'm not studying in CZ, so I'm the wrong guy to ask. I'm sure that someone will check in at some point with more detailed information. Good luck!

    I think after 11th year you take 2 more years to be recognized as high school graduates.. but I am not sure, it may be better to check this directly with the school.. always the most accurate info comes directly from its original source.. I am second hand

    Its interesting, right? Actually European system is this, and you the Americans are interesting for us too To go to med school first to have a bachelor's degree is so interesting for us. Anyway, after high school yes you can directly get in a med school, but in European system because the premed studies are included in med school curricula, the whole med education takes 6 years. So many med programs offer 6-year educations. But for US/Canadian prospectives, there are 4-year programs as well. By the way, the med schools regularly have med programs in their native languages for their own native students, but some schools offer med programs in English as well. You can find some of them in the "Medical Schools" link in my previous post here.

    As for language, the language courses take place in curricula and the students learn the native language during their first 3 theoretical years and at the beginning of clinical years they get somewhat ready. Some come out to be good and some poor in language, but as far as I could see, in general everybody helps each other in communication (how far? I think this depends on you, your relations, the atmosphere etc).

    Hey there, I might be able to answer your question as I am an American high school graduate. Basically an american high school graduate will not be prepared to take Charles University entrance exams. The level of knowledge is just too low. I actually did a combination of IB program (International Baccalaureate) + tons of AP courses and a few college courses when I was in the 11th and 12th grade and therefore, I was able to prepare myself for the entrance. But most (actually all) Americans/Canadians who apply here have a basic undergraduate degree.

    The general high school sciences translates to basic British O-levels; again the British O-levels will not suffice. You need British A-levels (in the required subjects) in order to write the entrance.

    The entrance exam is usually the sole factor they consider for getting in. At times (ie if you almost failed or almost passed), they will also consider your GPA.

    I've written several posts on the CR/Slovakian medical school forum regarding competitiveness, accommodation, and other hurdles a student is most likely to face when coming here.

    I do want to reiterate that some faculties of Charles University (like the 1st and 3rd, which are very reputed) are highly competitive and rigorous. You really have to earn your spot here and while in the past, the 3 years were considered to be the toughest, things have changed now. The first 2 years are the hardest now and if you can get past these, then you will make it through the rest of the years (assuming you continue to work hard and don't take too many breaks.) The final year is again tough because one has to take 5 state exams and these can be quite daunting. Each year only gets harder than the previous one (and I personally felt that the 3rd year was the hardest in terms of gaining knowledge...subjects like Pathology, Pathobiochemistry and Pathophysiology were just so vast, that I felt I would never be able to get a grip on these subjects. But when you put in hours and hours of work, you will see the results!)

    If you have any other q's, don't hesitate to ask :P
