General Medicine and Dentistry programs
The first four semesters encompass mostly theoretical subjects (Anatomy, Biology, Biochemistry, Histology, Physiology). Preclinical subjects (Pathology, Microbiology, Introduction to Internal Medicine, Surgery) are taught in semesters 5-7 (General Medicine) or 5-6 (Dentistry). Instruction in clinical subjects begins in the following semesters in both programs (Internal Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Neurology) together with subjects connected with public health care (Social Medicine, Medical Law). The clinical disciplines are taught in the Faculty Hospital, a large teaching institution with 1396 beds. The equipment of the Hospital meets all contemporary standards required for a quality medical education.
