Study Information

Schedule Planning

  • Only the General Medicine curriculum (3rd - 5th year ONLY) is offered to Erasmus students.

 

  • All of the subjects that a student chooses and writes down into the study records book ARE OBLIGATORY.

 

  • Due to our pre-set schedule system, it is recommended that students do not combine subjects from more than 2 years of study. However, the possibility to combine subjects from more years exists (it largely depends which years you want to combine, which terms, which subjects and their extent).

 

  • As it may happen that not all the subjects selected can be studied (e.g. due to capacity limits, a collision of one subject with another, etc.), create a list of subjects requested to be attended in a TEST Learning Agreement and send it to Ms Veronika Drbohlavová at first for confirmation of its suitability before filling the on-line application form! Should any problems (overlaps, etc.) occur, you will have time to reconsider your choice and choose another subject in order to obtain the necessary number of credit points your university requires. If done this way, we will avoid potential changes to your learning agreement and worries about being short of credit points.

 

  • You may also enrol for elective subjects. However, we cannot guarantee that all the subjects will be taught as it is entirely dependent on the current interest on the side of the regular students and will be known only at the beginning of the current academic year.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • If you wish to sit an exam (receive a mark/credits) from a PART of a subject (e.g. Internal Medicine IV - Rheumatology), from a subject that is not concluded by a final examination (where only credits are received at the end) or from an elective subject, you need to approach the guarantor of that specific subject with this application form and find out the possibilities. Only these authorities are entitled to agree to the specific requirement. However, BEAR IN MIND THAT NONE OF THE PRECEDING WILL BE STATED ON YOUR TRANSCRIPT. Only the standard way of finishing of the particular subject will be given on the transcript.

 

  • If you require any amendments to your Learning Agreement (a list of subjects to be attended during a term), you can submit your request to Ms Veronika Drbohlavová by the end of August AT THE LATEST. After that date, students are allowed to make amendments ONLY to elective subjects and ONLY providing that there are substantial overlaps of subjects in your schedule.
  • However, if you are attending a course over one whole year, you may still ask for changes in your subject list for the SUMMER TERM during the winter term. But, then again, you need to stick to the one-month-prior-notice rule.

 

Academic Year

 

Explanatory Notes

Credit
points
the number of credit points obtained after the completion of a particular
subject
WS winter semester
SS summer semester
L number of hours of lectures per semester
P/S number of hours of practical classes/seminars per semester
CC = course credit - confirms the completion of a particular subject at the end of the
term where no final examination is required
Ex = final examination

 

  • Those subjects that are without a Roman numeral (I, II, ...) are taught and completed within one semester only.
  • Those subjects that are followed by a Roman numeral stretch over more than one semester (Please note that you may choose a subject with "II", for example, only if you have already taken the prerequisite, in this case a subject with "I", at your faculty and may, therefore, continue with "II").

 

Information about schedules, curricula, syllabi and literature is updated only for the current academic year and are available no sooner than at the beginning of the academic year. All the information for the summer semester is available no sooner than at the beginning of the summer semester.

 

Kinds of Classes

  • Lectures - provide students with a comprehensive, general picture (an extensive description) of the main topics; it is held for all the students enrolled 
  • Practical Classes – involve practical training with students divided into smaller groups, the size of each group varies from 20/30-students groups at the theory and preclinical departments to practical bedside teaching of 5/6-students groups at the clinics
  • Seminars - combine theoretical knowledge and practical training always only for one study group (of 15-30 students); the important themes or clinical cases (PBL) are discussed here

 

Evaluation

  • Testing throughout a semester - can be oral or written (usually involves a multiple choice test) and is done at practical classes, possibly at seminars. For the seminars of some subjects, students have to prepare a short presentation from time to time. The marks received are taken into consideration when giving the final credit
  • Credits - given after a successful completion of a subject at the end of each term; with some subjects, credits can be obtained only when passing all of the tests given during the term, with others credit ("zápočet") is given when an oral or written revision test (including what has been learnt throughout the term) is passed. A student can receive only "pass" or "fail", not a mark
  • Final Examination - a way of completing a subject. It can be oral (with some theory subjects), but usually it consists of a practical and a theoretical part, the latter of which involves either an oral test or an oral test in combination with a written test)

 

Without obtaining all of the credits from a given subject the student can not sit for the final examination.

The conditions for obtaining a credit and for a final examination in every subject are written in the Syllabi (above).

 

Grading Scale

  • Oral/written final examinations are evaluated by grades 1 - 4
  • The following is a comparison of the Faculty grade scale and the grades of ECTS:

 

  Faculty Grades ECTS Grades
Excellent 1 A
Very good 2 B
Good 3 C
Fail 4 D-F
Credited C -

 

Transcript of Records

  • A transcript in English will be issued at the Student Affairs Department based on a student's results from each subject given by your tutor/examiner and written into a Study Records Book for ERASMUS students (a small blue book listing all the subjects enrolled for)
