International recognition

The six-year medical degree program at UMCH leads to a university degree in Human Medicine, which corresponds to the professional qualification listed in Annex V of the EU Professional Qualification Directive and forms the basis for obtaining a license to practice medicine in the EU and many other countries. An additional examination in Germany is not required. When applying for a license to practice medicine in Germany, however, it should be noted that in comparison to holders of a German degree in human medicine, additional proof of sufficient knowledge of German must be provided (B2 in general and C1 with regard to medical terminology). For holders of a high school diploma from a German-speaking country, however, this requirement is generally not applicable. Furthermore, the UMFST of Targu Mures together with UMCH in Hamburg is listed in the World Directory of Medical Schools (WDOMS) (FAIMER school ID: F0000226). This currently enables students to take the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).

A total of 360 ECTS points is earned during the 6-year study program. Each academic year contains 60 ECTS points.
