Duration of studies: 6 years (12 semesters)
By accomplishing the six years program candidates could achieve a General Physician degree and with that they can start their specialization in different fields.
During the first two years the education focuses on theoretical aspects of medicine that lay the foundation of the subsequent medical subjects. The theoretical knowledge is applied in clinics during the 3rd year with internal medicine and surgery along with other theoretical subjects. From this year students also take part in the work of the clinical departments and the teaching hospitals. The remaining clinical subjects are introduced in the 4th and 5th years. In the last year – the clerkship year – students perform clinical rotations of 37 weeks.
The language of education and instruction is English. However, students are required to learn some basic Hungarian in order to be able to communicate with patients from the third year on.
At the conclusion of the program (State Board Examination) the title Doctor of Medicine is granted for those who have met all the requirements of the training. This program provides complete theoretical and practical training in medicine. The graduated Doctors from Hungarian Medical Universities are entitled to apply for hospital residency places worldwide. Citizens of the EU and EEC will receive their license automatically within the Community. Furthermore all graduates of the Medical Program are entitled to participate in the US Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).
