Poznan University of Medical Science, Poland
6-year Medicine, 4-Year Medicine (Graduate Entry) and 5-year Dentistry at Poznan University of Medical Science, Poland
Poznan University of Medical Science has been established for over 90 years and offers internationally-recognised General Medicine (Undergraduate and Graduate) and Dentistry (Undergraduate only) courses. Situated in the pretty city of Poznan in Central Poland, the University was one of the first in mainland Europe to offer English-language Medicine degree programmes over 20 years ago, and also - more recently - one of the first to offer 4-year Graduate Entry programmes in English.
Students who complete the 4-year or 6-year Medicine programmes will complete with a M.D Qualification. Successful completion of the 5-year Dentistry programme will result in the award of D.D.S. Both medics and dentists who graduate from Poznan should be able to practise anywhere in the EU, including the UK.
The curricula of all three programmes conform to EU standards, and will give students a thorough understanding of basic medical and dental knowledge, both theoretical and also practical-based. In addition, students will get intensive tuition in Polish in the first year of study, so that they can communicate efficiently with patients and other hospital staff during their clinical training in subsequent years.
The 6-year Medicine programme at Poznan combines theoretical knowledge with practical implementation. The first three years of the undergraduate programe focus on basic medical knowledge such as Anatomy, Medical Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Histology and Embryology. The clinical years (4-6) are primarily focused on clinical knowledge and practical orientation, with the final year dedicated to clinical practice.
4-year Medicine (Graduate Entry)
The 4-year Medicine programme at Poznan combine theoretical knowledge with practical implementation. The first year in the graduate programe acts as a top-up for the theoretical knowledge learnt previously, to ensure students are all at the same level ready for the start of the clinical practice, as well as intensive Polish language instruction. The clinical years following are primarily focused on clinical knowledge and practical orientation.
The Dentistry programme at Poznan introduces students to the basics of head and neck anatomy, as well as more general medical knowledge which is relevant to the dental profession. A mix of theoretical and practical knowledge is taught over the 5-year programme.
Graduates of Poznan University of Medical Science programmes who are EU citizens may practise medicine or dentistry within all countries of the European Economic Area. Graduates who are not EU citizens practise world-wide in countries where the Poznan University of Medical Science M.D./D.D.S programmes are recognised.
