    dan1992 hi,

    Actually depending on its website, in Charles 2nd Faculty/Czech Rep. there should be a transfer option, except 1st and 6th years.. also in Warsaw/Poland, Pecs/Hungary, Szeged/Hungary, Semmelweis/Hungary there are transfer options, but is it available for 3rd year students, I dont know.. whatever I say here comes from the websites of the schools.. for further detail you may want to get in contact with those schools directly.. also the info here is limited with my personal research, and I dont know how the things are for other schools..

    If you are looking at other medical schools in the East Bloc, it is questionable whether you can expect too much of an improvement over Comenius... OK, maybe Jagiellonian, but they don't accept external (non-Polish) transfers, and even those are rare.

    I dare say that the things that are probably bothering you about medical school in Slovakia are likely to be even worse in many other E-EU locations (Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, Czech, etc.). Make sure you know the new school, VISIT IT FIRST, and don't jump from the frying pan into the fire, as the saying goes!

    There is no ranking as such but Masaryk University has received a very wide recognition over the past two years and they're slowly beginning to fall in the lime light. The university is doing really well in terms of research and developing international contacts. They also have the best infrastructure in CR.

    I can safely tell you that it is doing much much better than Comenius or even Pavel Safarik.

    The problem with all the Czech schools now is that they've set some very stringent rules for transfers. Transfer between the CR schools is possible but this might not be the case between countries. Charles 1st Fac. accepts only 2 transfers from other European countries and that too only at the beginning of the 2nd year. They do accept more transfer students (~5) from other faculties.

    So, I think you should consider another country for transfer.

    Practically-speaking, no. At least, not that I have ever seen. International medical school comparisons are very tough to manage, especially in E-EU. Also, it is rare to find someone who attends more than one institution, so how can there be a practical comparison between programs?

    The only online comparisons that I have seen involve research funding, publications, international reputation, and crap like that. Sure, it's important, but it has precious little influence on the quality of education in an English language curriculum.

    I would suggest that an overall review in VMD (not exactly concise, to be sure) might be as close as you are going to come. Bear in mind, however, that there are always outliers on both ends of the spectrum. You will find full-of-crap recruiters and agents who are claiming that some E-Eu medical school is the next best thing to Oxford and Harvard, and other disgruntled sorts who will insist that Satan himself teaches there. The truth is generally in the middle, innit?

    Of course, the ABSOLUTE BEST way to determine the quality of a medical school in E-Eu, bar none, is to visit it personally. I would NEVER recommend attending an E-Eu medical school without a visit in advance, which includes discussions with faculty, administrators, students (who do not work for the school), and a tour of the school, lecture halls, and clinics. It is not cheap, no, but it is a hell of a lot cheaper than winding up at a medical school that you hate, and transferring out after paying them for a semester.
