The English Division of the Second Faculty of Medicine was established in 1993 at the Medical University of Warsaw for students interested in studying medicine in English.
The Division offers a medical program for high school graduates and for college/university graduates. At the end of the program, the graduates are awarded the MD degree and receive a medical diploma recognized in the European Union, USA, Canada and most other countries of the world (for precise information on diploma recognition in particular countries, consult appropriate legal acts).
Having completed the basic science part of the study program, the students are eligible to sit for the USMLE (the United States Medical Licensing Examination) Step I and for the USMLE Step II on completion of the clinical part of the program.
Foreign students who decide to start their medical education at the Medical University of Warsaw can get financial support by applying for student loans in their home countries.
As far as the assessment of the students` achievements is concerned, the theoretical knowledge of the medical students is checked in the form of tests during the courses or/and written/oral exams at the end of the courses. The learning process of the students is supervised by the teaching staff during the whole course.
