Medicine

Medicine Course

Medical studies take six years (ten semesters + 1 year internship). For foreign students the language of instruction is English. However, foreign students are required to learn Hungarian in order to be able to communicate with patients from the third year on. Students who are fluent in Hungarian may join the Hungarian Program of the Medical School.

Each final exam is preceded by a two or three month internship period. Students in the final year are required to submit a thesis. The last academic year is concluded with a comprehensive final state examination in which the future medical doctors must demonstrate their competence in the most important practical and theoretical aspects of general medicine. Students having passed all examinations and having successfully defended their theses are granted an M.D. degree.

ELECTIVE COURSES
Required elective courses form a part of the undergraduate training in general medicine. These are, in the Clinical Sciences, based on clinical reality, and practical issues and aspects of direct patient care e.g., patient management, therapeutics and diagnostics. For the Theoretical Sciences these electives are based on aspects of basic research, social sciences, economic and legal sciences.
