General Medicine Programme

82653’To study general medicine is a challenge! You will be able to choose whether you wish to be a scientist or a clinician, in renowned institutions or regional healthcare facilities. Your work will always have a meaning and the potential of being a source of personal satisfaction. You are unlikely to earn much money but you will also never starve, and that is important...’ 

Professor Tomáš Hanuš, Vice Dean for Clinical Education

General medicine is the largest field of study at our faculty and the programme takes six years. The first three years are spent learning theoretical and pre-clinical subjects, the other half of the course focuses on clinical subjects. 


The study follows recommended study plans. These plans are based on the field’s accreditation but their content and structure is continually re-evaluated so as to reflect progress in our knowledge as well as experiences and views of teachers and students.


To achieve a normal number of credits, students have to register not only for mandatory but also facultative subjects. Facultative, i.e. optional, subjects are regularly analysed and modified. Their requirements are also re-assessed. Students can pass facultative subjects only if they meet certain concrete theoretical and practical requirements. At the moment, the faculty offers 407 facultative subjects. Students of general medicine in the Czech parallel programme can choose from 252 and over 2,200 students are registered in those courses.
