Medical education is based on an integrated system in which the topics are examined through a multidisciplinary approach in athe course based on interrelated systems. Periods I, II and III constitute of the preclinical part of medical education. The basic sciences in the 1st year, the normal biological functioning of the human organism in the 2nd year and the basic microbiology, the psychopathological and pathological foundations of the system diseases in the 3rd year, and clinical features and treatments are taught through a multidisciplinary approach. Medical education in the 4th and the 5th years involve a combination of courses and internships. In addition to theoretical lectures, the program also consists of in-patient training, clinical visits, patient preparation, outpatient clinic visits, and observation in the operating room, seminars and article hours, and joint meetings between clinics. The 6th year is the time for internships. The courses and internships cover not only global knowledge and skills, but also principles of preventive medicine and local needs. Students take an active role and responsibility in all clinical studies under the supervision of their responsible faculty member. In this last step towards medical practice, the students will learn to put their theoretical knowledge into practice.
