    Polish Medical School -Warsaw & Krakow Particularly

    Hi
    I am an original graduate of the Medical College of the Jagiellonian University (then the Nicholas Copernicus Academy of Medicine) 1983.
    When applying for admission to these two particular schools you must remember that even though you are applying to an English-language program it is in Poland, and the Polish administrative mentality has not changed for many many years. Everything takes many times longer than you would think it should, but you cannot apply US values to Poland. If the starting date for classes is October 1st, start worrying if you have not heard anything by the end of August. I am completely serious.

    I could explain what happens with the paperwork but it's not worth the time.

    If you have not hear by the 20th of August contact them by telephone. (This is of course assuming that your packet is complete and that every single required document has been received).

    These places run on a very very complicated bueauracracy that will frustrate you many, many times throughout your education. You must keep your cool, because if you make the administrators angry, they will be slow to help you with the documents you need once you want to apply for residency, etc in the US. Always be polite, do not loose your temper, speak Polish with them no matter how poorly you speak it, and be deferent.

    I made it through in their pilot program in Krakow as the first foreign-born individual study student. I worked in both English and Polish and had individual professorial tutelage. I graduated summa cum laude from Krakow in 1983. (Czerwony Diplom)

    If you have any questions about how it will be, or the situation in Poland, please contact me. I am frequently in Poland hold dual US and Polish citizenship, and speak fluent Polish.

    BTW, I am a successful academic diagnostic radiologist practicing at a large Midwest US teaching hospital, teaching residents, medical students and fellows. It's even more do-able now than it was when I graduated!!!!!
