University of J. A. Komensky - medical study

General medicine:

6 years    >    University of J. A. Komensky    >    Bratislava    >    Slovakia   >>>


The program combines general practice with special theoretical and practical training. The first four semesters mainly include theoretical courses (Anatomy, Biology, Biochemistry, Histology, Physiology), 5th and 6th semester the preclinical issues (Pathology, Microbiology, Introduction to Medicine, Surgery, General Medicine). Six months, clinical issues are being taught (Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Neurology), together with issues related to public healthcare (Social Medicine, Medical Law). The clinical skills are created in the Faculty Hospital, a large institution with 1396 beds. The equipment of the hospital meets all modern requirements for a quality medical education. After passing the state examination and the thesis defense, graduates receive the degree MUDr. - Medicinae Doctor universae (Doctor of Medicine).


Faculty of Medicine of Comenius University in Bratislava was founded in 1919 as the first faculty of medicine in Slovakia. During its existence, it offered education for more than 15 000 graduates, who spread the reputation of the faculty and represent the university in the world. Educational activities, scientific research and therapeutic and preventive activities are represented on the faculty. It consists of 20 theoretical institutes and 54 clinics.

At present, the Faculty of Medicine of Comenius University in Bratislava has two undergraduate study programs - general medicine and dentistry, both in a full-time. Studying both fields lasts six years. In the first three years students take theoretical knowledge from a predominantly clinical disciplines. Later are studies carried out especially in clinics of the Faculty of Medicine. In addition to undergraduate education, faculty provides doctoral studies, leading to award of PhD degree (Philosophiae doctor).


Bratislava is one of the youngest capitals of Europe. Nevertheless, it is a city with a rich history of the free royal coronation city, at a time when it was called Pressburg (BRATISLAVA, Pressburg). Today Bratislava is a dynamically developing metropolis, full of young and charming people, who create nice and unique atmosphere.
Thanks to its location in the heart of Europe, on the banks of the Danube River, it is an important crossroad of trade routes and meeting place of many cultures. 
Nowadays Bratislava is experiencing its great boom. With its 457 thousand inhabitants, it is a political, business and educational center of Slovakia.


The Slovak Republic (short form: Slovakia) is a landlocked state in Central Europe. It has a population of over five million and an area of about 49,000 square kilometers. Slovakia is a landlocked country bordered by the Czech Republic and Austria to the west, Poland to the north, Ukraine to the east and Hungary to the south. The largest city is the capital, Bratislava, and the second largest is Košice. Slovakia is a member state of the European Union, NATO, United Nations, OECD and WTO among others. The official language is Slovak, a member of the Slavic language family.
