Programme profile

Charles University: Third Faculty of Medicine

The Third Faculty of Medicine of the Charles University was separated from the Faculty of General Medicine in 1953 as an independent Medical Faculty of Hygiene, which then specialised in problems of hygiene and preventive medicine. In 1990 the faculty developed a new study programme and a revised content and style, which emphasised a primary orientation toward general medicine while retaining a specific interest in preventive care.

The first two years of the programme are devoted to basic medical sciences, the third year to pre-clinical subjects and the fourth to the sixth year to clinical practice. Preventive medicine is included in both types of training, theoretical and clinical.
