Poznan Medical School

Hi everyone. I'm new here, and it's so nice to meet all of you.

My interview is this Saturday, and I'm more than a little nervous. I know Poznan is a really good medical school, so I was wondering what the interview questions and the entrance exam was like. Was it difficult? I've also heard that Poznan tells you in a few weeks when you are accepted or not, and I wanted to know if it was true. I apologize; I'm applying from America, so I don't know much about Poland.

I also wanted to know about the culture there.

@scaredtodeath12 3.

It's not that easy. If you graduate from a medical school in Poland, you will have to pass the rather stringent USMLE exams. Most graduates of foreign medical schools have to prepare for a year or two to pass, usually by taking (expensive) supplemental courses.

Then there's getting a residency. Graduates of foreign medical schools are at a major disadvantage here compared to US students. About half that apply fail to get a residency. You have to be certified by the ECFMG, which has rather stringent requirements.

In any case, your post indicates that you are not a all prepared to enter studies this year. Not by a long shot. Do your research on the topic and on Poland and apply next year. Learn as much as you can of the local language.

There was a time when studying medicine abroad made sense. It still can, but you really, really have to know what you are doing, and you are completely clueless.

My advice, though, would be to do everything you can to study in the US. The quality of education and the ease of finding a good residency would be much, much higher.

Studying at Poznan



Hi everyone. I posted on here before for the interview at Poznan. I was accepted, and I wanted to know what it's like at Poznan. From what I've seen from the internet, it's incredibly beautiful. I've heard the admissions team speaking the language and it sounds lovely, though I don't speak any. I was accepted into the four year md program by the way.

So in short, I'd like to know what life over there as a medical student is like, as well as what I should be doing in the third and fourth year, aside from studying my steps. Thank you again.
