    Hi guys!

    In Hungary :

    6 years Medical School:
    • pre-clinical and clinical studies (ten semesters and one year of clinical rotations). The curriculum is drawn up in the belief that direct experience with patients, either at the bedside or in the operating theatre, is fundamental to a sound medical education.
    • In the first or Basic module the students become familiar with the structure and functions of the healthy human body. In the second
    • Preclinical module the formation and features of the pathological processes are studied and the students become acquainted with the basic patient examination skills.
    • In the Clinical module the specific diseases are taught and diagnostic and therapeutical skill of the students will be developed. Most of these studies are practical in nature mostly in the wards.
    • Clinical rotation is a full practical year in wards. The students carry out mostly medical activity under control of the teachers.
    After the Medical School:
    • 2 years Resident
    • 1-4 year candidate for specialist doctor

    Hi. In Venezuela, the medicine career is about 6 years, and the last year is the "internado rotatorio" (Being a Intern in a public hospital) in Internal Medicine, Gyn-Ob, Pediatrics and Surgery areas. Later, the physician must work 2 years in the public health as "Médico General o Médico Integral" (General Practitioner) in a "Consultorio/Ambulatorio" (community health center).

    Poland
    I'm from Poland and it takes 6 years at the university (the 6th year is the practical training but still carried on by the university and there are exams) and then 1 year of internship. During the internship we take a national exam that we have to pass to have the right to work as a doctor. Then we can choose a specialty that lasts 4-6 years depending on what specialty this is.

    In Poland studies are free, but in case of medicine you can attend free studies or paid studies which are the same with that difference that you have to pay or not. The fee for paid studies in Poland is about 30000zł/1year (which is about 7000 euro) for studies in polish and about 11000 euro for studies in english. Of course it is more difficult to get admitted to free studies (these are only in polish). So I have 6 years of free studies, and then during that one year of internship I'm getting paid and during the specialty we're getting more money than during the internship.

    Also first 3 years are considered as pre-clinical and next 3 clinical. But in fact it's not really true. For example at my university during the second year except from pre-clinical courses we also have clinical genetics where we have contact with patients and during the third year we have dermatology and propedeutics of: internal medicine, surgery and pediatrics. Also radiology and nuclear medicine.
