Voluntary Summer Elective

Ob/Gyn Syllabus underwent major changes (no 5th year Ob/Gyn rotation, no compulsory summer elective) All Ob/Gyn is in 6th year and for you it is the very last subject at the faculty. It last 7 weeks – (3 weeks practical seminars and theoretical lectures, 2 weeks clinical attendance, 1 study week, and 1 exam week)

We will encourage you to do voluntary summer elective where you should see (normal delivery, Ob/Gyn ultrasound examination, hysterectomy, cesarean section, gynecological examination and routine ward care) We will recognize this voluntary elective (worldwide, only certificate needed) and you will be able to skip 2 weeks clinical attendance. The system how technically we will collect it is not set up yet, but we will inform you timely in advance.

Therefore, there will be 3 ways how to fulfil criteria for Ob/Gyn subject.

You will always need to pass final State exam at First Faculty.

1) Full attendance of 5+2weeks at the First Faculty

2) You will attend 2 weeks clinical elective (any Ob/Gyn department -worldwide), bring stamped certificate. Then you will be required to attend 3 weeks practical seminars and theoretical lectures.

3) You will attend full Ob/Gyn program of recognized university abroad. This requires receiving our pre-approval. You will send us your request, with the name of university and its Ob/Gyn syllabus. After our review you will (or not) receive our approval and you will be required before the state exam bring us a certificate from the visiting university.
