This six-year full-time field of Master studies prepares the graduates for the profession of a doctor. It is completed with the degree of MUDr. (Doctor of General Medicine). It is designed for graduates of secondary schools completed with a school-leaving examination. In the course of the first two years, the curriculum includes principally theoretical courses (Biology, Biophysics, Medical Chemistry and Biochemistry, Anatomy, Histology, Physiology).

Successful studies of these courses necessitate an excellent previous knowledge of natural science-oriented subjects at the grammar-school level. The instruction is carried out in the form of lectures, laboratory practicals, and seminars. The third year of studies comprises preclinical courses and is preparatory to the study of clinical courses. In the course of the fourth and fifth years the student gradually passes through internships at the individual clinics and departments. The instruction is supplemented with lectures.

The last year of studies is devoted to pre-graduation practical training during which students work at clinics and departments under the supervision of experienced doctors. In the course of the studies students also complete 4 blocks of vacation practical training during which they gradually get acquainted with the operation of health-care facilities and with practical procedures. The studies are completed with advanced (rigorous) state examinations in five subjects.

By studying in the degree programme of General Medicine, the graduate acquires the following:

a) knowledge and skills 1. in the fields of science on which general medicine is based, as well as the knowledge of scientific methods including principles of measurement of biological functions, evaluation of scientifically proven facts, and data analysis; 2. in the constitution, physiology, and behaviour of healthy and diseased individuals, and in the effect of the living, working, and social environments and of the lifestyle on the health state of man; 3. in the clinical disciplines and clinical practice, which provide a comprehensive overview of physical and mental diseases including their genetic basis, as well as the knowledge of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and of the basics of medical advisory activity; 4. in radiation protection; and 5. in the basics of prevention methods in the field of protection and support of health;

b) clinical experience in the course of practical instruction under the professional supervision of a doctor with specialist qualification in hospitals and experience in laboratory diagnostics disciplines;

c) knowledge of the basic legal regulations relating to the exercise of the medical profession; and

d) knowledge of professional ethics of doctor-patient communication.


The basic unit of studies is a course. The amount of study necessary to complete a course is expressed in the assigned number of credits (henceforth credit value). The credit value of each course or group of courses or stage of studies is determined in line with the ECTS principles.

A condition for completion of study in each of the programmes, fields of study or specialisations is the acquisition of credits awarded for completing the courses within a prescribed plan, the overall count of which reaches at least the minimum credit value of studies that is set at thirty times the standard length of studies in a programme expressed in semesters. For the programmes that combine multiple fields of study the minimum credit value is set as weighted average value calculated for each field of study. The weight of the value calculated for the field of study, is defined by the recommended number of credits that represents the field of study in the combination, or is determined in the programme. The credits received during studies in programmes including the lifelong learning programmes held at MU are included into all concurrently studied programmes.

For the purposes of these Rules, courses and groups of courses that are parts of the programmes held at MU, at the MU faculties or at other institutions of higher education, are classified as required, selective, or elective. Required courses are those whose completion as well as the prescribed manner of completion is mandatory. Selective courses are those included in a required group of courses. Required groups of courses are sets of courses from which it is mandatory to complete a certain number of them, including the prescribed manner of completion, or a minimum number of credits. Other courses are elective in relation to the study.

For the purposes of study credit value, only credits for courses the content of which is not identical or substantially overlapping may be recognized. For particular elective courses for which the content of study activities is substantially different each time the course is offered, the Dean of the faculty holding the programme may allow repeating the course more than once during the period of studies, and the accumulation of credits thus acquired.

Examination regulations, assessment and grading

Completion of a course means meeting its requirements in a manner of the following:

* course-unit credit,
* colloquium,
* examination,
* graded course-unit credit.

The due dates of completion of courses are made public by the Examiner or the examination board Chairperson or another academic staff member appointed by the Dean in IS MU at least two weeks prior to the beginning of examination period. The number of dates of course completion must comply the type and form of course completion, number of enrolled students and course characteristic resulting from the requirements for course completion.


The admission procedure is an administrative process set to determine whether or not an applicant shall be admitted to studies in an accredited degree programme. The admission procedure begins with the submission of an application to an MU faculty and proceeds in compliance with the Higher Education Act and Masaryk University Statutes. The admission procedure ends with a decision on admission or denial of admission to studies in the degree programme and field of study listed in the entrance application. Should the applicant withdraw the application or fail to complete the requirements imposed by the admission procedure (in particular the entrance examinations), all fees associated with the admission procedure are considered non-refundable.
