Programs available in English

The English program is 15 years old, and over 600 international students have successfully completed their studies and earned a degree in the field of General medicine or Dentistry.

The Faculty of Medicine provides university study for international students in two medical branches:

  • General Medicine - the course lasts 6 years (12 terms)
  • Dental Medicine - the course lasts 6 years (12 terms)

Both - General Medicine and Dental Medicine - are available for international students with a good command of English. The Faculty of Medicine is closely connected with the Teaching Hospital in Košice, in which practical education in clinical disciplines is carried out.

The last years of study are concerned with practical training in hospitals and health care institutes. The study is completed by the state examinations before the Board of the Faculty Experts. Graduates are awarded the academic title "Doctor of General Medicine", abbreviated “MUDr.” (equivalent to M.D. degree) and “Doctor of Dental Medicine”, abbreviated “MDDr.” (equivalent to D.M.D.).

In those professions where the conditions of education in Slovakia are identical with those in the European Union, which have already been recognized (medical and dental doctors), the member states of the European Union are obliged to accept the diplomas issued in Slovakia, irrespective of the language of instruction.

The Credit System

From the academic year 2001/2002 in line with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) the credit system was implemented. That system enables access to courses within EU countries. The ECTS stimulates mobility by allowing students to study abroad, yet still having full academic recognition at the host university. It also creates curriculum transparency further improving the recognition of degrees.

About the Faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine was established in 1948 as a branch of the Faculty of Medicine of the Slovak University, later called Comenius University in Bratislava. Then in 1959, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Philosophy merged, which led to the foundation of a new university in Eastern Slovakia, called Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice.

The Faculty of Medicine at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice closely co-operates with many significant universities and institutions in: Prague, Paris, Nantes, Bordeaux, Padova, Essen, Giessen, Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Zürich, Turku, Oulu, Salamanca, Krakow and others.

As a state university Pavol Jozef Šafárik University functions under the auspices of the Ministry of Education. It is accredited according to the rules and regulations of the Higher Education Act of the Slovak Republic.

In those professions where the conditions of education in Slovakia are identical with those in the European Union, which have already been recognized (medical and dental doctors), the member states of the European Union are obliged to accept the diplomas issued in Slovakia, irrespective of the language of instruction.
