Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin, Comenius Univesity, Slovakia

Jessenius Faculty of Medicine (JFMED) belongs to the Comenius University, which is the largest and oldest university in Slovakia. In addition to the JFMED in Martin, it offers the opportunity to study medicine at its second faculty - in Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia. JFMED is located in the historical centre of Martin. Martin is quite a small town, however, a population of around 80 000 inhabitants places it in the top 10 largest cities in Slovakia. It is located in the north of Slovakia, close to the Czech and Polish borders. There is a train station in the town, where international trains stop.

The faculty is equipped with modern classrooms, laboratories, and most importantly a simulation centre, which allows students to practice their skills. The university library is also located near the faculty, which is an ideal place for undisturbed studying even during weekends. The faculty offers a number of leisure options. Various social and sporting activities are organised during the semester. The faculty also offers accommodation in student dormitories or it is possible to rent an apartment, but it costs more.

Curriculum includes theoretical subjects such as anatomy, histology or physiology in the first years, followed by practical subjects and internships in hospitals in the later years.

Each academic year is divided into two semesters. The winter semester starts in mid-September and lasts until the end of December. This is followed by the winter examination period (January to mid-February). From mid-February onwards, the summer semester continues, ending with the examination period during June.

At the Jessenius Medical Faculty in Martin, you can only study general medicine (not Dental Medicine), which lasts 6 years. The study programme is in English and the tuition fee is 10 900 € for each year of study. Upon graduation, graduates will receive an internationally recognised diploma and the degree of Doctor of Medicine. Therefore, after graduation, you can find employment not only in Slovakia, but also in the European Union or in the USA.

In addition, the university has a long list of requirements and legal protocols that must be followed, including the preparation of documents that need to be translated, notarised and legalised. An incorrect application will be rejected, so it is essential that everything is done correctly.
