Second Faculty of Medicine
The Charles University Second Faculty of Medicine continues the nearly fifty-year-old tradition of the former Faculty of Paediatrics of this University. The Second Faculty of Medicine offers both pre-graduate and postgraduate education to students, doctors and other professional staff working in all fields of medicine. A total of about 1,000 students are presently studying at the Faculty, concentrated at the Motol University Hospital, which is not only one of the most developed and largest hospitals in Europe, providing total health care for both adult and paediatric patients but also currently one of the most easily accessible from Prague metro.

Students see patients already at 1st year – visits to GP´s offices are included in curriculum which is one of the salient features of the Second faculty of Medicine. The study programme of the subsequent years also includes practical training in special health institutes both in Prague and other cities in the Czech Republic.
Students receive practical training in nursing care (second year) and in internal medicine, surgery, gynaecology and obstetrics and paediatrics (fourth to sixth years). The medical course for international students is conducted in English at the Second Faculty of Medicine.
The Medical Board of California recognises the medical degree from the Charles University Second Faculty of Medicine and enables doctors to practice without converting their degree; only a few European Medical schools have this advantage (including the Charles University First Faculty of Medicine). Another key benefit is that UK/EU citizens can register with GMC directly after graduating, making it easier to work in the United Kingdom.
