Prague Selective

District General Hospital | Czech Republic

Hospital description

Dr Stransky (Martin J. Stransky, MD, FACP ) directs the Prague Selective, the largest programme of its type in Europe (over 1,500 students from over 40 medical schools). The programme was established in 1998 is an introduction to clinical medicine. The Selective is geared toward first and second-year students who have at least some exposure to basic physical diagnosis and/or neurosciences, although this is not required. There is no formal screening process for the Selective, other than being a medical student in good-standing in an accredited medical school.

Students are exposed to various hospitals in the locality and have afternoon discussion sessions exploring how physicians think as well as how different medical systems operate. The programme is active for three weeks each July, and is a good option for students who would like to experience medical thinking and practice in a context outside their national healthcare system.
