Abroad, specialists in medicine are in high demand, respected and highly paid professionals: the profession of a doctor is considered very prestigious. In many respects this is due to the fact that the training for a doctor is long and complicated (especially compared to other specialties), which, however, practically does not affect the flow of entrants - the competition for each vacancy is consistently high.
One of the most popular countries for obtaining higher education in medical areas is the Czech Republic. Here the duration of studies is usually 6 years: 3 years of bachelor's degree, 2 years of master's degree and year of practice, internship or internship. A big plus is that foreign students at any university course can study for free if they choose a program in Czech.
In general, the entire training course for a doctor in the Czech Republic can be divided into 3 periods:
1) 1-2 year : The study of general subjects of general medicine (anatomy, physics, biology, biochemistry, chemistry, etc.)
2) 3-4 courses: the study of subjects according to the chosen specialty, the passage of practice in public and private clinics
3) 5-6 course: the selection of the clinical direction and its in-depth study.
Applicants are waiting for entrance examinations in core subjects - it is necessary to pass biology, chemistry and necessarily a foreign language. We always recommend starting the preparation in advance, at least six months before the application: the competition for vacant seats is consistently high, which means that the requirements are strict, and every student must meet them 100%.
