The School of Medicine in English is a structural unit of the Faculty of Medicine, at the Jagiellonian University. Its first students were admitted in October 1994. During the 2011/2012 academic year, nearly 600 students from five continents and twenty countries were enrolled in the School, with the majority coming from Norway, the USA, and Canada.The School offers three programs: two of medicine and one of dentistry, taught exclusively in English. This first - the Medical Doctor Programme for College-University Students - is a 4-year program for graduates of pre-medical college/university programs in the USA/Canada, the second is a 6-year program for graduates of secondary schools and the third a 5-year program for high school graduates.
Graduates of these programs are conferred a Doctor of Medicine (MD) and a Doctor of Dentistry (DDS) degree by the Jagiellonian University Faculty of Medicine. Academic staff include the most experienced scholars and lecturers at Jagiellonian University, as well as foreign academics from the USA, England, Germany, and other countries.
These English-language programs remain in compliance with Polish and EU standards of teaching, the US Department of Education (Stafford Loan Program), and Medical Board of California.
