Dearest students of the Faculty of Medicine of Cyprus International University,

As of September 2018, I have the excitement and the honour of establishing the Faculty of Medicine which will provide a new, different and latest approach to medical education within our university. The aim of our faculty is to follow scientific developments and changes closely, to be open to innovations, to make our own research, to contribute to science at national and international level. to educate physicians who are aware of the health problems of their communities. The education period is six years and the language of instruction is English. In the first three years, in addition to the theoretical and laboratory courses in basic sciences and clinical medicine, the basic sciences curriculum includes introduction to clinical practice, enriched with clinical practice. In the fourth and fifth years, medical education consists of internships. In the sixth year, students will complete their education by taking responsibility in patient care under the supervision of faculty members. Dear students, medical education is a lifelong education. At the end of this path, you will become a physician who adopts good medical practices and makes a difference with the quality. We will embrace you with love and wish you all the best with the hope of getting the best together in this long and exciting process.
