Faculty of Medicine in Bratislava

The Faculty of Medicine, CU in Bratislava was established in 1919 as the first professional school of former Czechoslovak State University (later Comenius University). It owes development and honor to many Czech physicians who were also the first heads of departments and institutes. They did not only build particular medical branches but also prepared the first generation of Slovak physicians and formed favorable conditions for improvement of health care in Slovakia.

The main aim of FMCU is pedagogical and educational process, scientific and research activities and curative and preventive treatment. At the beginning of its existence students were trained in so called clinical subjects and later in theoretical subjects. FMCU prepared over 17.000 physicians who are either from Slovakia, or from other European states, Asia, Africa and America as well. Demanding aims of the Faculty are provided by institutes, hospitals, special facilities with close cooperation with teaching hospitals and further health-service institutions.

The main task of the Faculty is undergraduate education of students where they gain general medical knowledge and which takes 6 years. The graduates can continue in their research in postgraduate training in an appropriate department leading to the award of PhD degree.

Since 1990 the Bratislava Association of Medical Students has been working at the Faculty in the field of international cooperation and scientific information. EuroTransMed satellite equipment has been available since 1995 at the Faculty. It has been of great importance for medical education of both medical students and physicians.

Professional medical journal Bratislavské lekárske listy is also an important source of information and stimuli for scientific, clinical, and experimental research. The first issue was published in 1921. Abstracts from the journal form a part of information system Medline (Index Medicos and computer network Internet/Logos).
