Medicine in English

Medical education in the Czech Republic may be different from other countries.


In the Czech Republic, high-school graduates enrol in a long-cycle Master’s degree programme lasting five (Dentistry) or six (General Medicine) years.


After completing a Master’s degree, graduates may continue on to a Ph.D. programme or enrol in a specialisation training programme (where a command of Czech language is necessary).


Charles University has five faculties of medicine, three of which are in Prague, one is located in Pilsen and one in Hradec Kralove. They are independent institutions of equal standing, each having its own medical facilities. They all offer degree programmes in English and the awarded degrees are comparable. The curriculum of English-taught courses is fully comparable with the current international standards and is accredited by the EU. All five faculties of medicine follow the historical tradition of medical teaching at Charles University. Nevertheless, there are differences among the faculties as to their approach to teaching methods. The original three medical faculties in Prague used to be independent faculties with slightly different focuses. Faculties in Pilsen and Hradec Králové were established after World War II. You may apply to all of the medical faculties, but you have to complete a separate application to every faculty. Each faculty has specific entry requirements and entrance exams.
