The MD in English program for high school graduates at Jagiellonian University is tailored for international candidates who have graduated from high school/secondary school, have obtained grades in Biology (or Physics) and Chemistry, and possess a good working knowledge of the English language.


The JUMC Six-Year Program differs from many other six-year and extended year medical school programs. The MD in English at Jagiellonian University focuses entirely on its students developing the necessary tools of a healthcare professional: skill in basic science, research capacity, and clinical skill. Although the program requires that its students have sound writing abilities, it does not require that students take university-level “general education” as a prerequisite to obtaining a medical degree. 

In addition, once a student is admitted and remains in good standing, the student is not required to be accepted into the medical program after initial years of study, like many other programs. The Six-Year Program is conducted entirely in the Faculty of Medicine.  Starting from the first year, the program requires that students gain clinical experience every year.

Learning outcomes

Students of the School of Medicine in English also have the opportunity in their final year of study to complete elective rotations at various universities in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere.

Graduates of the medical programs are eligible to apply for residency and postgraduate training programs at university teaching hospitals in various countries, including the US, Canada, Australia, England, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, and Poland.
