    Advanced Program (4 year) MD at Jagiellonian Cancelled for 2019/2020?

    Bonjour Fellow Colleagues,

    I heard from the great vine that the 2019/2020 Advanced MD (4 year) program at Jagiellonian University may be cancelled this year (application for the 2019/2020) due to updated regulations. Can anyone confirm if this is true? If so this is a great disappointment.

    Has anyone found out if the four year program is being offered based on the US style M-1, M-2, M-3, M-4 curriculum? The application for high school students launched on January 15, 2019

    They canceled the program. I literally paid the medical school a visit a few days ago, as I'm visiting Krakow at the moment. They just canceled the program without even giving an announcement or explanation. Very unprofessional if you ask me. I was planning on applying this year as I always wanted to attend Jagiellonian. They told me I should apply for the 6 year program which in my opinion is a absured, especially when I'm 29, with a masters and phd and a 523 on my MCAT. Medical University of Warsaw also canceled their Advanced MD (4 year) program. Sad this happened. Not sure why they even decided to do this.

    Vegok thanks for this. Are you a Canadian by chance?

    To put this change into context: The polish university governance system was changed in October 2018 so I am not surprised that they have been forced to cancel 4 year programs that have no connection to Polish Citizens. As of October 2018 the Polish Government has more influence in Universities and appoint their own representatives to the University Board.

    Hey Newbie,
    Yes, I'm from Canada. At the moment I'm traveling around Europe hence why I stopped in Krakow to ask; as this was a critical dream of mine (to go to the university). I have to say this was a bad move for the University. But being on Senate at UofT for 2 years I can understand some decisions are only beuracratic ones. Too bad it had to happen now. Going to try and look into something else in Poland or maybe France.

    I share your disappointment that the 4 year program was cancelled for apparently bureaucratic reasons, thanks for contacting the school and sharing the news on here. I may still apply to the 6 year course although I already have a BSc. It's definitely not ideal financially and otherwise but the only upside is that you might be less rushed to study for USMLE etc and still get your MD degree in the end.... I believe Poznan offers the 4-year course if you have completed certain science pre-requisites. Best of luck in whatever path you decide to take :-)

    Just to clarify, with a BSc in biology and chemistry I would not "surpass" the first two years in the six year program?

    Nope. I asked them about that. I have a BSc in Biochemistry, Masters in Genetics and a Phd in Molecular Biology. None of that mattered. I would still have to do everything from the beginning. I don't think I would have the energy retaking biology and chemistry courses I was teaching for the last 2 years in Canada.

    Wow okay you are definitely qualified in my eyes, but starting from scratch probably isn't the best idea
