    About the Courses

    In general medicine, the first two years are dedicated to the basic disciplines, such as anatomy, histology, embryology, biochemistry and physiology. In the third and fourth year the premedical subjects, such as pathological anatomy, pathological physiology, microbiology and pharmacology are studied. The last years are fully dedicated to the clinical subjects however bed-side teaching starts in the third year.

    Students of dental course also study the basic disciplines during the first two years as well as stomatological propedeutics. In the third year they start with clinical stomatology first trained on phantum, which is more practical oriented to bed-side teaching and then direct contacts with patients.
