Located in: Czech Republic
Just like the main campus of Charles University, its second faculty is located in Prague, but unlike its bigger counterpart, its focus is solely on teaching medicine in English. This makes it an ideal option for international students who wish to study medicine in Europe, since the staff has decades of experience teaching medicine in English.
The Second Faculty of Medicine is located in Prague where the main campus of Charles University is. At this time, the faculty offers only a medicine course taught in English. The faculty is cooperating with the Motol University Hospital where many lectures and practical training are held.
Charles University was established in 1348 and nowadays has 17 faculties located in three different cities - Prague, Hradec Kralove and Pilsen. It is one of the oldest and largest Czech Universities. The university offers several undergraduate medical programmes in English.
Prague is the capital and the most populated city in the Czech Republic.
The Medical programme consists of theoretical and practical sessions. In the first 2 years, you will have mostly lectures about the foundations of scientific subjects and the human body. In the following years, you will be involved in training programmes in the cooperation hospital. Also, you will be required to take summer clerkships in your home country or anywhere else you choose.
Since it’s hard sometimes to find a teaching hospital for your clerkships, many European Universities, including Charles University, take care of that instead of students. The clinics and hospitals that are in cooperation with them are happy to welcome every student.
This faculty doesn’t offer a graduate entry pathway and doesn’t accept student transfers.
The Second Faculty of Medicine is located at V Úvalu 84, 150 06 Prague 5, Czech Republic.
