    If so is there any useful information I should know before hand regarding the interview, documents, as well as how competitive the applicant pool is?
    Thanks.

    Tristanb306 hi, I am from Istanbul too

    Lodz doesnt have California Medical Board approval, which means you cant work in California (even if Lodz get approval later!), also in some other states, which follow the criteria of California. This makes up an important number of residency positions in total (that you cant apply). So if you consider US for your future, Lodz have this kind of a problem.
    Welcome to the Medical Board of California - Medical Schools Recognized by the Medical Board of California

    Besides to be an international school, which has both 4 and 6 year programs, means they are open for US/Canadian students as well (4-year programs, in essence, are set up for North Americans and they claim to provide US system in 4-year programs). So regarding that, despite they provide 4-year program, they dont have CMB approval, this may mean to me one of two:
    1) They dont have the vision to apply for CMB approval.
    2) They applied, but because of lack of competency, they couldnt get the approval.

    Both are the indicators of a limping quality for me.

    Yes I have heard they are not california approved and I do indeed intend to go back to the US once I finish however I am still willing to work in other states. I think the price is quite good in comparison with those in the caribbean and the application process looks so much simpler than in other schools i've researched.
    Right now my biggest worry is the admission, I have good grades but still I guess I am worry that it's as hard to get in as here in the states. (I am appliying to the 6 year program).
    Thanks, for your imput though I really apreciate it

    Tristanb306 of course its your free choice, but to graduate from a non-CMB approved school is a lifetime ban from California, Texas, Idaho, Vermont, Indiana and some others as well.

    I think the price is quite good in comparison with those in the caribbean and the application process looks so much simpler than in other schools i've researched.
    I have made a little research about some of the schools and here is the summaries of them:
    Medical Schools
    (there is a next page of the blog)

    Right now my biggest worry is the admission, I have good grades but still I guess I am worry that it's as hard to get in as here in the states. (I am appliying to the 6 year program).
    I think reverse
    Could you check the sample tests of the schools? This is the admission criteria of Jagiellonian and the sample tests (Jag demands you to take only bio+chem tests):

    Its in business life too the same: They have lofty criteria in ads, but love to work with you Before applying and passing through those processes, you can never know which oneS will want you Always the more application, the wider spectrum of choice at last.

    Don't worry, the competition is not nearly as fierce for these programs as it is in the States. However, if you plan to work in the US, your best bet is to complete undergrad and medical school (either MD or DO) in the US.

    However, if you are determined to study in Poland, then I would recommend choosing an English program that has 50 state approval -- even if you don't eventually want to work in California or one of the states that follow its list. This is important because there are still literally THOUSANDS of residency positions in California and those other states, and you will be acing yourself out of them if you study at a non-approved program. With the increasing number of US schools and grads, anything that you can do to increase your eligibility for residency slots is a very good thing.

    The CMB-approved English programs in Poland are Jagiellonian, Poznan, Silesia/Katowice, and Lublin, and I am sure that you would be eligible for one of them if you have solid HS grades.

    Good luck, whatever you decide!

    I am not yet in a med school, but I would consider Jagiellonian. Because I dont have personal experiences about admission process, I cant give an idea, I am sorry

    Congratulations You know what, Lodz recently took place in Turkish media with one of their succesful projects: They produced a navigation system for blinds. It coinsided with Turkish project in the same subject, only with a difference Lodz employs a call center team to give directions to the carrier of the navigator by following the navigator device over satellite(more human-dependent but provides wider scope), while the Turkish version is producing automated reply instead of call center people(again following over satellite, but I think? limited with the map database for automated reply). Anyways, both are exciting and you will be in Lodz. Congrats again, I am really happy for you

    By the way, it was interesting for me to learn the pronounciation of Łódź is somewhat like Woodjsh an interesting language..
