    How's the Medical School of Silesia?

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone!
    I'm interested in applying to the Medical University of Silesia as a transfer student from another Medical school. Can someone please tell me how is the teaching and the preparation for the USMLE step one? Are the teachers helpful? How is leaving in Poland? Is the campus diverse? How are the clinical rotations? Basically, the school I'm attending now the teaching is horrible by far and I feel I am not learning anything especially for my USMLE step 1. I want to make sure is it worth applying to this school.

    Your experience, while regrettable, is rather par for the course in Eastern Europe. I would be shocked -- even assuming you were able to transfer -- if you would find things significantly better at another program. When you sign on to study in E-Eu, you have to learn what you can from the professors (some are better than others), make arrangements with other professors for additional experience, and teach yourself much of the stuff for Step One. That's how it rolls in the Bloc. Good luck.

    you really have to step it up with the learning over there as there are a lot of distractions. if the teachers see that you are active and enthusiastic you'll get a good education there.
