In 2014, a new compulsory subject General Medicine for students of the 5th year was created at the Faculty of Medicine. For the first 5 years it was listed as “Family Medicine” within “Internal Medicine”. Since the school year 2019/20 it is a separate subject called General Medicine. It is a compulsory, evaluated, credited course. The aim of creating a separate subject General Medicine is to become medical students more familiar with the work of general practitioners, to inform them about the possibility of postgraduate study in the form of a resident program. The guarrantee of the subject General medicine is MUDr. Beata Spanikova PhD.
