Medical Studies in English

Welcome to SSST's Faculty of Medicine - Sarajevo Medical School!


In the 2014/2015 academic year the University Sarajevo School of Science and Technology introduced a new twelve-semester (six-year) Medical Doctor Study Programme in English. Graduates receive a Doctor of Medicine degree (MD).

The classes for the first year of medical studies started from 6 October 2014.

As the first private medical school of its kind in the region, SSST utilises the existing facilities within the University’s main campus building. Its medical laboratories for the pre-clinical portion of the programme are located in the subterranean level of the main campus building and cover about 1800 square meters of space. The laboratories have cutting-edge medical equipment and software which is even lacking at the state medical universities in the Balkan region. Students have to complete their non-clinical training in order to continue on their studies and complete the clinical portion of their training at the Clinical Centre of Sarajevo (KCUS), the main clinical centres with which SSST has signed an agreement and entered into partnership. SSST has also signed agreements with other clinics, hospitals, health centres and emergency services in the country.  

At the SSST Medical School, students are trained not only in the science of preventing, diagnosing and treating disease, but also in the art of effective communication with patients. From the earliest days of their medical school career, students at our school begin face-to-face work with patients in medical settings. Our aim is to prepare physicians to excel in the ever-changing world of modern medicine.

The faculty mainly consists of Bosnians and Herzegovinians who have been educated abroad and most of them have gained significant experience in renowned clinics abroad and in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Some professors are from the Bosnian-Herzegovinian American Academy of the Arts and Sciences in the United States. The study programme is taught entirely in English.
