In the first two years, the curriculum includes mainly theoretical courses (Biochemistry, Biology, Physics, Anatomy, Histology, Physiology, etc.). The third year of study comprises preclinical courses (Pathophysiology, Pathology) and prepares students for the study of clinical courses (Surgery, Internal Medicine). In the third, fourth and fifth years, students undertake internships at individual clinics and departments. The last year is devoted to pre-graduation practical training, during which students work at clinics and departments under the supervision of experienced doctors. In the course of their studies, students also complete several weeks of practical training (during holidays), during which they gradually become acquainted with the operation of health care facilities and practical procedures in the selected fields. The studies are concluded with state examinations in five subjects. The entire programme (except for the Czech language courses and practical training) is conducted in English. Students are also obliged to take Czech language courses and sit examinations at the end of their first, second and third years of study. This is necessary for communicating with patients in Czech during practical clinical training in hospitals.
