Palacký Univeristy, Olomouc

The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry has been running a study programme in General Medicine in the English language for the last 20 years, recently adding Dentistry as another programme taught in English. During these years, graduates have successfully established themselves as well respected and sought after members of healthcare teams in numerous countries, from the USA and Canada, the UK, and Norway, all the way to Malaysia and Japan. The medical school is located on the same campus as the university hospital, meaning that there is no need for any complicated commuting. All teaching happens in one place, with most clinics within a few minutes’ walk from the lecture halls.
