The medical studies program in English at the medical faculty of the University of Zagreb, has received the “Certificate for Quality in Programme Internationalisation”. We congratulate the university on this certificate, even though we have always felt sure, that our MSA students are in good hands in Zagreb.
The English medical studies program has been assessed by the “Croatian Agency for Science and Higher Education” (ASHE), with the help of an assessment panel. Within this assessment process, a site visit of the medical faculty took already place on April 15th in the last year.
The main goal of the university, in respect of the internationalisation of their students, has been fully fulfilled. The English medical studies program in Zagreb aims at educating future doctors, who can practice in an international environment, as a doctor with an intercultural understanding. Beyond that, the students should be optimally prepared for the different challenges, that globalization brings with it, and they should also be able to apply acquired skills to medical treatment and to handle the needs of the international patients, in their future career. Hereby, the faculty offers the ideal preparation for the international job market.
The medical faculty of Zagreb is the first faculty in the biomedical area, which receives this certificate from the European Consortium for Accreditation.
