Medicine and Dentistry

Charles University has five faculties of medicine, three of which are in Prague, one is located in Plzeň and one in Hradec Králové. Their names include numbers signifying the order in which they were established. 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. Nevertheless, there are differences mainly as to their approach to teaching methods. The curriculum of English-taught courses is fully comparable with the current international standards and is accredited by the European Union.


Our 6-year programme General Medicine leads you to the Master’s degree MUDr. (“Medicinae Universae Doctor” = Doctor of General Medicine). Our Dentistry study programme lasts for 5 years and concludes with the Master’s degree MDDr. ("Medicinae Dentium Doctor" = Doctor of Dental Medicine). Both programmes are not divided into Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees; the whole curriculum lasts 5 or 6 years. After completing the Master’s degree, graduates may find a job straight away, continue on to a Ph.D. programme, or enrol in a specialisation training where a command of Czech language is necessary.

Why we have five medical faculties?

Our faculties of medicine follow the long tradition of medical education at Charles University that constituted one of its four original pillars of knowledge since the foundation in 1348. In the 1882/83 academic year, the Faculty of Medicine was divided into Czech and German institutions, alongside the entire university. Following the events on November 17, 1939, Nazis closed the Czech University altogether and reopened only in May 1945. The following year, the German University was shut down, while the (Czech) Faculty of Medicine acquired the property of the former German Faculty of Medicine.


In 1945, the Faculty of Medicine also established two of its branches outside the capital, which later became independent institutions:



In 1953, the Ministry of Higher Education split the Faculty of Medicine in Prague into three independent faculties with slightly different focuses:



You may apply to all our medical faculties, but you have to complete a separate application to every faculty. Each faculty has specific entry requirements and entrance exams. For more details about the deffirences, please visit this blog post where all Czech medical faculties are discussed, including their entrance exams.


The applicants may also choose Pharmacy. Our Faculty of Pharmacy in Hradec Králové offers either a Master’s study programme Pharmacy (5 years) or a post-Bachelor study programme Pharmaceutical Sciences (2 years). Study programmes General Nursing, Paediatric Nursing, and Intensive Care are offered in Czech Language only.
