Cooperation with foreign countries and international mobility are a priority for our faculty.
Apart from the Erasmus program, which gives students the opportunity to spend one to two semesters at some European universities, the IFMSA organization offers other placements to students.
Our faculty has had an excellent relationship with the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester, USA. This unique cooperation, which in its scope surpasses all other medical schools in the Czech Republic, provides an annual placement for about 10 undergraduate and postgraduate students for a 3-month placement in Rochester. Placements focus on research and are usually connected with the area of interest and future development of our students. There is also often a publication output. All participants of the placement at Mayo Clinic confirm that it is a very stimulating activity. In some cases it has led to further work placements at prestigious clinics in the USA.
Inter-faculty agreements and hundreds of inter-university agreements for students and teachers are another common way of cooperation with foreign institutions.
