Basic Medicine (Foundation) Program

It is recommended that students who do not have a thorough knowledge in biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics or who need a period of acclimatization prior to the beginning the General Medicine Program, enroll in the Basic Medicine Program. Students successfully finishing the Basic Medicine Program are directly admitted into the General Medicine Program.

General Medicine (M.D.)

Medical studies take six years (twelve semesters). For international students the language of instruction is English. However, international students are required to learn Hungarian in order to be able to communicate with patients from the third year on. During the first two years the curriculum focuses on theoretical aspects of medicine that lay the foundation for subsequent medical subjects.

Dentistry (D.D.S.)

Dental studies take five years (ten semesters). The five year program at Debrecen has been carefully structured and designed to ensure a high standard of knowledge, skills and responsibility of dental surgeons. During the 1st year a thorough understanding of the basic medical sciences such as Biophysics, Biochemistry and Genetics is gained and in the 2nd year the program broadens to encompass Anatomy, Histology, Physiology, Behavioral Sciences in topics which are relevant to the Practice of Dentistry. Even in the 1st and 2nd year special dental subjects - Odontology, Preventive Dentistry, Dental Materials and Techniques - are taught.
