    international graduation rate

    Advertisements



    hi, i am think about attending medical university of lodz the 5 year DMD English program , and have searched their graduation ceremony only about 7-8 student graduated from the 5 year DMD program this year and why is it so few ? . I know that med school is definitely not easy, but i wonder how is the graduation rate ? will you be easily kicked out or just stayed down? because i have heard from a friend who went to Czech studying in DMD also , she said originally 16 student got in at the first year , but only 1 successfully graduated after 5 years. it will be very helpful if anyone can provide some information about this , thank you

    If you are from North America, going to dental school outside of US or Canada is a waste of time and money because you won't qualify for a dental license unless you redo the last two years of dental school in a North American dental school. There are some dental schools that have programs for foreign dentists but they are like 50K or more per year and it will take you a total of 7 years to become a licensed dentist. So I would caution you about even considering this route.

    If you are from the EU, then that's a different story and these schools would give you a path to practice in the EU countries.

    Hi I'm from the Asia area , I am considering coming back to my country but practicing in North America is a choice too , and also because I'm not a US citizen I heard dental school in US don't really accept applicants from international student , so finishing dental outside US and then go for the two year program might be the only way if I want to practice in North America

    Well, EE is an option but be careful with those schools. I don't know anything about dental schools but the medical programs in those countries are not the best. They have outdated curriculum and dental students are put with medical student during the first two years, forcing them to study a lot of subjects that have no real relevance to dentistry. The exam system is outdated too with ridiculous oral exams that are very subjective. So you need to be careful about what you are getting into with EE schools. Otherwise EE schools are pretty much the same regardless of country.

    I would look into UK schools as well as Irish schools. Australian schools are also an option. Those countries accept foreign students for medicine and they might do so for dentistry as well. You need to exhaust all other options before heading to EE as the education you might get won't be the highest quality.

    Hey,

    Just to clarify, the reason that only 10 or so people graduate from the 5 DMD program is because in the upper years on the DMD program there aren't many students who applied into these programs. In the upper years of the MD program there are also 10-20 students per year graduating, since the first year classes 6-7 years ago where literally 30 people max. In recent years (2015- 2016) the school began accepting up to 150+ students in the first year of the 6 MD program, and 50+ individuals in the DMD programs.

    What is the drop- out rate? Not very high actually, since the university focuses more on passing students than weeding down those that are unprepared. On that note, many individuals fail subjects are have to repeat the year and drop into lower years. I don't think you can retake a class 3 times, but each exam have 3+ retakes and then if you retake the class you have 3+ retakes so plenty of wiggle room. You can retake one class while still being in the same year as your classmates; you would only have to retake the year if you fail 2+ subjects and it interferes with your other classes.

    Peace
