About the program Medicine

The medicine course is an entirely English-taught programme and lasts six years. The first two years focus on pre-clinical study and theory with the next three years focusing predominantly on clinical study.

The programme finishes with an internship year of medical rotations in the lead up to graduation. Students are required to take state exams for licensing during this period.

All course curriculum, laboratory work, and research assignments are in line with EU requirements. Summer practical internships are obligatory for students in their 2nd, 3rd and 4th year of studies.

Once the entire programme is completed and state exams have been passed, students will become a Physician or Doctor of Medicine (MD) and receive a master’s degree. While some graduates continue their specialisation choices in Bulgaria, the degree and license are fully recognised worldwide.

Graduates of Bulgarian universities who practice and hold medical qualifications internationally are in the thousands.
