What do you study at medical schools?

If you would like to study medicine, you need to be aware of the fact that becoming a doctor takes time and energy, and you cannot just breeze through the university courses.

Most universities’ education system is based on the same curriculum, which is the following:

  1. During the first two years of your medical studies you will receive education in basic sciences, which include for example anatomy, histology, biology, chemistry, bio-chemistry, immunology, genetics and molecular biology.
    After the basic education part, you will need to take a final examination in order to continue your studies.
  2. The next year will be the pre-clinical part, during which you will study pathology, patho-phisiology, micro-biology, pharmacology and other related subjects.
  3. During the last part of your studies you will receive clinical education. You will study about specific fields of medicine like surgery, internal medicine, paediatrics, gynaecology, psychiatry, neurology, orthopaedics etc.
    You will have intensive hospital rotations, where under the supervision of senior doctors you will participate in patient care and treatment.
  4. You will conclude your medical studies by taking part in the national board examination, which, if successfully passed, will recognize you as a qualified and certified medical doctor.

 

What can you do after becoming a doctor?

Once you have successfully completed your medical studies, you become a so-called General Practitioner or GP. Being a GP will mean that you have a good knowledge in all the fields of medicine, but you are not a specialist in any of them. From this point, you can choose what you want to do:

  • You can practice as a GP or family doctor
  • You can continue your studies and participate in a residency program which will take 4-5 years of study and practice
  • You can continue your studies in basic sciences (e.g. micro-biology, pathology) and earn a PhD degree
  • You can get involved in research and education at universities, pharmaceutical companies or research institutions.

The intensive medical education provides you with a broad knowledge which enables you to engage yourself effectively with any of the above tasks.
