    Question about Russian med schools

    Advertisements



    I was just wondering if Russian medical schools have the same strict criteria that US med schools have for admissions (difficulty of being accepted); also, are the curriculum and classes just as difficult? Thanks

    hi

    Hi there,
    Surely you cannot have missed the high number of posts on how easy it is to get onto russian med schools, their basis is if you are 17 years of age, and have been in education up untill the age of 17, you are eligable to apply, they don't really look too much into your academic past, although you are required to have passed bio,chem,phy and math.
    Europe is a buyers market with schools which have old curriculas, these schools are all mostly god, as they have thousands of grads all over the world, but you have to put the effort in... or else............... you will fail, however if you are willing to study hard, and i mean hard, you should be fine.

    hope this helps

    Daniel

    ok

    Sorry, I am new to this forum section; so basically, if Im understanding this correctly, its easy to get in, but to get through the classes is tough? Are the classes comparable to US schools in subject and difficulty material? The reason Im asking is because my friend is really thinking about applying to russian and us med schools, but is a little fuzzy about these details

    correct

    Hi,
    looks like you have hit the nail on the head. I am now the representative (british) for a ukranian medical school, and to get in is a breeze, but the classes are tough if you arn't prepared to study hard, if you are well prepared, you will do great, but if you dont, you will be out in the 1st or maybe 2nd year.
    As for educational standards, they are european standards, and one can argue that the European teching style (countries like england,ireland,france,ukraine,hungary) is better than that of the US, but i cannot compare the two, seems as though i only have previous in Europe.

    hope that clarified any unresolved issues.

    My 5 cents

    My 5 cents to highlight admission questions:
    There are no tests and/or exams. They consider certificates and other documents. Just few (the leading) Russian medical schools have some competition. In general they require >75% in natural subjects Bio, Chem, Math, Phys for admission to English medium MD program. As to Russian medium program, it is not a problem to get a place, but you will need to enter 8 month preparatory course to study the language and natural subjects as well. So, previous grades are not a problem.
    Good luck in your studies.
