From the beginning, the University realized that the current pace of development and the specificity of medicine today (introduction of molecular and personalized medicine) require training doctors with sufficient knowledge in different fields of science. Therefore, the General Medicine Educational Program is based on an approach combining high quality medical training by top specialists in different fields of medicine with a comprehensive education in natural sciences, social and economic disciplines, mathematics and humanities and students’ participation in research projects.
The idea behind the introduction of this specialty is to train highly qualified medical doctors/researchers with expertise in clinical disciplines and the research skills and knowledge of natural sciences required for biomedical research.

The program graduates are prepared to pursue preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic, educational, and organizational and research careers; they can continue their education in an internship, residency, or doctoral program in post-graduate professional education programs.
