MD Program in English is the long-cycle (undergraduate) program lasting 12 semesters. First three years of the program focus on the basic sciences and from the first year of study, students are familiarized with ethics in medicine and communication with the patient. Basic clinical sciences are taught from the fourth to the sixth year of the program. A number of elective courses is held in the course of studies. In order to pass a year, summer clerkship completion is required. Upon completion of the studies graduates receive a diploma, and are awarded a title of lekarz.
