Effective teaching
Our educational model rests on two pillars: effective conveying of knowledge and proven methods of knowledge verification so that students know what requires improvement.



Hands-on approach and contact with patients
Beginning from the 2nd year, our students have contact with patients of our clinics. Practically from the very beginning, students will combine theory with practice. Those students who engage in voluntary service will have an opportunity to assist their lecturers during their duties in clinics, which also involves active participation in medical procedures and surgeries.
