CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

 

Curriculum Overview

Program will begin on August 28, 2017. For first-year students we organize Orientation Day on September 1, 2017.

In the final year, our students are eligible to complete a clinical rotation in approved teaching hospitals.
Students may apply for the elective rotations through the home University:
University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Rochester, NY

Below is the current list of the universities that offer elective rotations to students in their final year of study.

Please note that applications for elective rotations in the universities listed above must be addressed to the Jagiellonian University Medical College School of Medicine in English, NOT the host institution, as the eligibility depends on agreements signed by these universities and JUMC.

Applicants are granted the approval of the Dean of the Jagiellonian University Medical College subject to the applicant's academic performance at the JUMC School of Medicine in English.

July 27, 2007, the Division of Licensing of the Medical Board of California granted recognition to the English language programs of the Jagiellonian University Medical College (JUMC). As a result of this decision, our graduates are eligible to enter postgraduate residency training, apply for licensure in California, as well as complete clinical rotations in approved teaching hospitals in California.
