Welcome to the web pages of our faculty!

The First Faculty of M prof. Aleksi Šedoedicine, one of the founding four faculties of the Charles University in Prague, belongs to the most significant Czech institutions of higher education. It plays a key role in delivering the most modern health care through its clinics – joint institutes with the General University Hospital and other hospitals in Prague. It is simultaneously the most productive center of biomedical and clinical research in the Czech Republic.

The main objective of our Faculty is to prepare graduates that are well prepared for medical practice, true professionals, equipped with a thorough understanding of the scientific background of medicine as well as the highest ethical standards in basic human values. We strive to train students to be creative, life-long learners, and critical problem solvers. I am convinced that we have the best facilities and resources composed of high-quality teaching faculty and excellent clinical and research facilities.

An integral part of every good school is fulfilling a research mission. High-quality research, and research productivity places our Faculty not only among the „top ten“ research institutions in the country, but also respected institution on the world-wide level. . Coordination of the clinical and basic research is an irreplaceable resource for future applications that will benefit our patients. Our school supports the teams that bring new ideas.Schools can be placed into three categories, 1) the first one uses the books to teach, 2) the second is the place where these books are written, and 3) the third generates the knowledge that enables the writing of the text books. Our Faculty is at on the forefront of scientific discovery, translational research, and clinical care. Our institution generates the data that forms the basis of text books, writes the text books, and instructs students.

I believe that you will learn through these pages all the important things about our Faculty and its vibrant life. I hope that they will serve you as a useful guide – whether you are our current or prospective students, doctors, scientists, or just casual visitors.
