The Faculty of Medicine was founded in 1919 and since then it has gained an excellent reputation not only in the Czech Republic but also abroad. All degrees earned at the Faculty of Medicine are fully recognised in the EU, the USA, and in most other countries. The Faculty of Medicine is located in an ultra-modern campus that was opened in 2010 and provides 5,000 students and over 1,000 academic and research employees with a superior study and work environment. The campus is directly connected to the teaching hospital, where students gain valuable practical experience during their studies. Students are also provided with several computer rooms, study rooms for classes or group work as well as a library with over 100,000 volumes of primarily medical, biological, biochemical and chemical-related topics and sciences. The Museum of Anatomy houses over 600 exhibits and can also be used for self-study purposes.
