    Hey guys! 7 years in Sweden!
    5.5 years at the university. We have intergrated studies although the first 2 years are still mainly theoretical basics and the last 3.5 being more advanced and at the hospital... and then 1.5 years of practice before getting the license!
    Best regards from Karolinska Institute :)

    Hi there, I am from India...but studying in Georgia.
    Here medical course is about 6 yrs.
    2.5 yrs Basic science
    2.5 yrs Clinical science
    1 yr Clinical clerkship(Internship)
    Special about this internship program is that either you complete your intern program here in Georgia or you can complete your intern program from your country by giving your country's national exam of medical. For example- MCI Screening Test or FMGE in india.
    One more special about university here is that its syllabus is based on USMLE (UNITED STATES MEDICAL LICENSING EXAMINATION). Don't know much about other universities but David Tvildian Medical University follows this american syllabus. I am student of this university.

    In Italy:
    6 years with the first 3 years of pre-clinical studies and the last 3 of clinical studies.

    After the degree you could choice two way:
    1) 3 years to become a GP
    2) Take a specialization: 4 years for the clinical specializations; 5 years for Internal Medicine and the surgery specalizations; 6 years for general surgery

    Every of this step requires a National Test of Admission
