Study Medicine in English in Croatia, Europe!
In the academic year 2003 University of Zagreb Medical School (UZMS) introduced a new 12-semester/8 semester (6/4-year) Medical Doctor Study program in English. Graduates of the program are granted a diploma conferring the professional title of Doctor of Medicine (MD).
This program is entirely instructed in English, and is also designed so as to meet both American (USMLE) and European Union standards with its internationally accredited exams. UZMS also has working relationships with a number of university medical schools in Europe and North America, including University of Toronto, McGill, and the Mayo Clinic.
The University of Zagreb, founded in 1669, is the oldest and most distinguished institution of higher learning in South-East Europe. Its Medical School, founded in 1917, has a long tradition of educating foreign students - so far over 700 foreign citizens have earned their medical degree in Zagreb. Graduates of UZMS have established private practices or found teaching positions in medical schools all over the world, including the U.S. and Canada. Currently, UZMS has students enrolled from the U.S., Canada, U.K., Europe, Australia, and Asia.
6-year program: candidates are expected to have graduated from a four-year high school with a solid basic knowledge in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and have a good knowledge of English. Candidates may be required to take an entrance exam.
4-year program: candidates who have graduated from a pre-med program may be eligible to enroll in the program.
Credit for successfully completed pre-med courses at the university level, if applicable, is at the discretion of the Admissions Office.
The tuition fee for each academic year is 7.000 Euro (approx. 8.000 USD) if paid at once or 7.200 Euro (payable in two installments) prior to the beginning of each semester. Beginning in 2005/2006 the Government of Canada has recognized UZMS, and Canadian citizens are eligible to apply for government (OSAP) student funding.
Deadline for applications is July 1, 2007. Late applications may be considered.
