Student Associations


Association of Czech Medical Students (SMČ)

‘We are an association of students from all years of study. Our aim is to make students’ life at the faculty more pleasant and offer some respite from constant pouring over books. We organise lectures, discussions, events for making patients’ stay in a hospital more pleasant, as well as parties. By joining, you become part of a wonderful and supportive group of people. It is also a great opportunity to meet students more advanced in their studies and spend some time off with friends. Join us. You won’t regret it!’

Association of Czech Medical Students is open to all students of the 1st Faculty of Medicine of the Charles University. The association has at its disposal facilities where students can spend time or organise events, which members can attend or later help with their preparation.

To join the association, students pay a one-time fee of 100 CZK. Then they become members for the entire duration of their studies. This means that the sooner you join, the better. But it’s far from compulsory.

The club room of the association is on the first floor of the Faust House (Karlovo náměstí 40) to the left of the staircase. It has sofas, chairs, several computers, but also a table football, a quiet study room, and of course a wifi. Available are also most compulsory reading materials for students from all years and medical literature in English.

Best known events organised by the Association of Czech Medical Students include a Star Party, St. Nicolas’s Presents, Drop of Blood, and Medics’ Picnic.

Clinical internships are intended for students who completed three years of study, passed an English proficiency test, and accumulated a sufficient number of points which can be gained by participating in projects or for residential activity (meaning a student for a month takes care of another student who is doing his or her internship here).

Czech Association of Addictology Students (ČASA)

82683‘During the academic year, we organise discussions with interesting people from the field of addictology, show films that deal with drug-related issues, and participate in various educational events organised by the faculty or elsewhere. Membership in this association is a great opportunity: you can join us at various events, help out at conferences, but also receive information about job opportunities and news from the field. At the same time, it’s nothing to get nervous about. Addictology is a small field, our meetings are often quite informal, and it’s not at all difficult to quickly fit in. I believe that everyone quickly finds what he or she enjoys or something to get involved in,’ says Kristýna Fišerová, third year addictology student.

This association brings together students of the bachelor, master’s, and doctoral courses in addictology. Its main aims include support to students, promotion of this field of study, collaboration with professional workers in addictology services, and cooperation with international universities.

The Czech Association of Addictology Students organises educational events aimed at improving awareness of the principles of addictology, dispelling erroneous notions about addictology, and integration of addictology principles into society. In the Faust House, you can attend for instance its regular Film Hits (Filmové nášlehy).
