The curriculum of the General Medicine (MD) program in Pecs is designed to form a foundation upon which the future physician can build his or her medical knowledge in a continuously evolving profession. The program of instruction consists of six years of pre-clinical and clinical studies (ten semesters and one year of clinical rotations).
The curriculum is drawn up in the belief that direct experience with patients, either at the bedside or in the operating theatre, is fundamental to sound medical education. In the first or basic module, the students become familiar with the structure and functions of the healthy human body.
In the second, Preclinical module, the formation and features of the pathological processes are studied and the students become acquainted with basic patient examination skills. In the Clinical module, the specific diseases are taught and the diagnostic and therapeutical skills of the students will be developed.
Most of these studies are practical in nature, spent mostly in the wards. Clinical rotation is a full practical year inwards. The students carry out a mostly medical activities under the control of the teachers.
All European Union countries and several other countries (Norway, USA, Canada, Israel, etc.) recognize the diploma issued by the Medical School.
