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).
Becoming regionally competitive from the outset, the SSST Department of Medicine boasts cutting-edge laboratories, equipment, and software, coupled with highly accomplished and qualified professors and instructors.
Its outstanding performance as SSST’s fastest-growing department, led to the expansion of the Sarajevo Medical School to now Include the Department of Dentistry, Department of Pharmacy, and the Health Study Department, all offering full degree programs.
Students complete the clinical portion of their training at the Clinical Centre of the University of Sarajevo (KCUS), the city’s main hospital, while SSST holds additional contracts and agreements with a number of supplementary clinics, hospitals, and emergency services in the country. Students are trained not only in the science of preventing, diagnosing, and treating disease but also in effective communication with patients. From the earliest days of their medical school career, students already have contact with patients. The strength of this program lies in its intense clinical practice, focus on communication with the patient, and ethical standards of medical practice.
The curriculum of the Sarajevo Medical School Department follows the world’s latest trends in science and research. Graduates at Sarajevo Medical School are already working as medical doctors throughout Europe, the USA, and all around the world. With our extensive research program, we teach our students to conduct and present medical research at conferences and publish works. Our aim is to prepare graduates to excel in the dynamic world of modern medicine, competing at a global level.
