The duration of the program is 12 semesters, with total number of 5710 hours of lectures and practical classes. Each year awards 60 ECTS points.

New system of education, so-called outcome based, has been implemented at PUM.

Learning outcomes are statements of what each student is expected to know, understand and / or be able to demonstrate after completion of a process of learning.


The outcomes are based on the following essential elements of a competent and reflective practitioner:

1. what the student knows (demonstrating evidence of knowledge, assessing comprehension, assessing application, assessing analysis and synthesis)

2. what the student is able to do (practical skills)

3. the student as a professional (competences - a dynamic combination of attributes, abilities and attitudes)


These three primary elements give rise to seven domains, which student will have to master during 5 academic years:

A _ morphological sciences

B _ scientific basis of medicine

C _ preclinical sciences

D _ behavioral sciences with elements of professionalism

E _ clinical sciences

F _ clinical sciences with treatment

G _ legal and organizational basis of medicine
