General nostrification is handled by the rectorate of Charles University, not by the 1st Faculty of Medicine. More information here.

2) A foreign document concerning a foreign higher education if it is deemed automatically equivalent in the Czech Republic in accordance with its international agreements without any further administrative procedures (a higher education diploma and diploma supplement from Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, or Slovenia). For more information see here.
