Palacky University Faculty of Medicine

The English language medical education program offers 2 doctoral degrees; a Medical Doctor (Medicinae Universae Doctor, MUDr. equivalent to MD) and Doctor of Dentistry (Medicinae Dentium Doctor, MDDr.) with all lectures, practical clinical training at the university hospital, tutorials, and examinations in English.

Accreditation & Recognition 

The MD program is fully accredited by the U.S. Department of Education and by the Canada Student Loans Program for financial aid. Graduates can practice in the United States after passing the USMLE's and receiving certification by the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). An ECFMG certified graduate is eligible to apply for a residency position in the United States through the National Resident Matching Program. In Canada, MCC QE and MCC EE examinations administered by the Medical Council of Canada are required before the graduate enters the Canadian Resident Matching Service. 

Graduates  will be able to obtain registration in the UK, Ireland or in any other EU country without the need for a separate assessment of their medical knowledge and skills at the point of registration.  

For other countries, you should ask the corresponding authorities or professional bodies in for specific information about any licensing procedures and conditions for a full registration. Palacky University Faculty of Medicine is listed by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Except for the fact that practicals, seminars and lectures are conducted in English, the curricula of the 2 study programs, General Medicine and Dentistry, are identical to the coursework pursued by Czech medical students. They conform to the European Union standards. The six-year General Medicine program has been also accredited by US, Canada and Malaysia, to name only the countries most students come from. The five-year Dentistry course is offered to applicants since the academic year 2010/2011. Learning the Czech language is also compulsory for the first three years of the program. Proficiency in Czech is required for communicating with patients and others in the wards, such as nurses, who may speak only Czech.

The first four semesters of the General Medicine study program encompass mostly theoretical subjects (anatomy, biology, biochemistry, biophysics, histology, physiology). Preclinical subjects (pathology, microbiology, pharmacology) are taught in semesters 5-7. Instruction in clinical subjects begins in the following semesters (internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetric and gynecology, neurology) together with subjects connected with public health care (social medicine, medical law). The whole sixth year is devoted to bedside training in internal medicine, surgery, gynaecology and obstetrics. The study is concluded in the 11th and 12th semester with final state examinations in internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, preventive medicine and pediatrics.

At a graduation ceremony, the graduates of General Medicine and Dentistry are awarded the degree Doctor of General Medicine (Medicinae Universae Doctor, abbreviation MUDr., equivalent to M.D.)  Possession of this degree enables the holder, an EU citizen, to practice medicine within the European Economic Area and in other countries where our Faculty is recognized.
