Why is it Worth Studying Medicine at Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University?
Studies are based on a worldwide educational experience and reflect modern trends in this field.
The curriculum consists mostly of integrated modules which combine the content of different traditional disciplines. The modules related to basic sciences are based on body systems – the nervous and the muscular system, the circulatory and the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system, the urinary and the reproductive system – and contain elements of anatomy, histology or physiology. Clinical subjects are also integrated in modules such as cardiology, gastroenterology, and endocrinology,. which include topics from internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, radiology etc. Such an approach makes it easier for students to adopt a holistic and multi-dimensional medical mindset.
Early contact with the patients combined with humanistic teaching.
Starting from the first year students are exposed to patients in the module: “First encounter with the sick person” The biological, chemical and physical aspects of medical education are complemented with more general and humanistic subjects such as “How to be a medical doctor?”, “History of medicine” and “Death as seen from a biological, social, and cultural perspective”.
Practical training comprises altogether over 1,200 hours within the course of the 5-year-long medical programme realized either in a direct contact with patients (so-called bedside teaching), or in various laboratory practices (e.g. microscopical laboratory, biochemical and diagnostic laboratory, laboratory of medical simulation, etc.) . After each year of studies students are obliged to take 4 weeks of summer clerkships amounting to 600 hours in total (20 ECTS credits). On top of it 30 weeks of practical clinical rotations are scheduled for year 6. The summer clerkships as well as the final clinical training in year 6 will be held at healthcare centres selected by the University.
