The medical studies at the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen are divided into two basic study programmes – General Medicine (six years) and Dentistry (five years). 

For medical students, the first two years of study are devoted to theoretical disciplines, such as Anatomy, Histology, Embryology, Biophysics, Biochemistry and Physiology. During the third and fourth years, pre-clinical subjects, such as Pathological Anatomy, Pathological Physiology, Microbiology, Immunology and Pharmacology are studied. Bed-side teaching is also introduced in the third year. The last two years of study are fully devoted to clinical subjects. For students of Dentistry the third, fourth and fifth years are devoted to clinical stomatology.

Not only are students educated for medical practice; they are also introduced to the basics of research and are led to their independent research work. In the course of their studies, particularly during the summer holidays, students have a number of opportunities to study and gain experience abroad. Not only for these reasons, but particularly because students are required to study foreign resources, emphasis is placed on language teaching. Thus, besides Latin, each student must pass an examination in English and one more foreign language.

The academic years for theoretical disciplines and pre-clinical subjects are organized into winter and summer semesters. Each semester consists of a teaching period followed by an examination period. The clinical courses are organized in a block system.
