Medicine

In order to become a doctor, you have to undergo extensive education and training, starting with a pre-Medicine program, the actual Medicine program and then a specialized internship and residency training, which is even followed by regular postgraduate seminars. Of these, the Medicine program provides the most intensive training, with the first year covering simple biomedical subjects such as biochemistry, anatomy, histology, physiology, genetics and behavioral science, as well as the history and principles of medicine and the role of a doctor. The second year looks into each of the body systems, as well as how to take patient histories and conduct patient examinations, while starting to tackle the different branches of medicine, such as pediatrics, preventive medicine, pathology, obstetrics and surgery, more of which are studied in detail during the third year with practicum. Medical ethics and medical laws are discussed, as well.
