Preparatory courses for your medical studies

UMCH offers different courses, which are subject to a fee and help you get ready for your medical studies.

Pre-Medical Course:

Our Pre-Medical Course is a 3-week program. It includes the subjects of biology, chemistry and physics. Above all, it serves to consolidate and expand your preexisting knowledge while gaining new skills in these areas. Throughout the course you will acquire a significant amount of scientific information – a basic requirement for medical studies – within a short period of time.

College Semester:

Our 12-week College Semester covers not only the natural sciences of biology, chemistry and physics, but also mathematics, biochemistry, anatomy and medical theory. Therefore, the extensive semester also includes topics that are usually not covered at school. As a result, a considerable advantage in knowledge is built up, which will make your starting medical studies immensely easier.
