Charles Medical University was founded in 1348 by the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire and the Bohemian King, Charles the Fourth. Since its inception, it has a tradition of teaching a diverse student body in a variety of languages: originally, Latin was used as the official language, later accompanied by Czech, German and most recently, English. Today, the English-taught students form a considerable proportion of the medical course. First Faculty of Medicine with almost 1 200 staff members and 3 400 students represents the largest medical faculty in the Czech Republic. It is an integral part of Charles University from its foundation by the King of Bohemia and Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire Charles the Fourth in 1348. As such, it is also the oldest medical faculty in Central Europe.
Faculties of the Charles University:
It is one of the founding four faculties of the Charles University. The First Faculty of Medicine founded in 1348 ranks among the fifteen oldest medical schools in the world. Teaching and research at the faculty cover almost the entire spectrum of medicine and health professions from the full range of basic sciences through clinical specialties. Some disciplines are unique to the school at the national level. Since it is not only a teaching, but also a research institution, they bring to education the most modern findings and technology. University education at the Medicine faculty provides several different degree programs. The greatest number of students pursues a six-year programme of General Medicine (leading to a MD degree), or a five-year programme of Dental Medicine (leading to DMD degree). These two clinical programmes are offered both in English and Czech languages. There are other three to four year Bachelor's programmes in health professions (e.g. nursing and other specialties), some with a Master's option, offered to date only in the Czech language.
