The Medicine course lasts for six years and is taught in its entirety in English and adheres to the higher education standards of medical curriculum in Europe. The first academic cycle spans across the opening three years, with a focus on preclinical studies and the related medical fundamentals, theory, assigned independent research and laboratory work. The second cycle over the final three years focuses on clinical education which includes surgical and preventive medicine courses and hospital experience. Every summer, from year one to year five of studies, students are obliged to work in university affiliated hospitals, medical centres or clinics for a minimum of four weeks per year (20 days, 8 hours/day = 160 hrs), amounting to at least 800 hours practical experience over the duration of five years. During year six, students must write a personal research dissertation on a topic assigned to them by their instructor and can opt for an internship or rotation practice. To finish year six, students must sit the State examination, comprised of three components: a written exam that assesses the student’s medical knowledge, an oral presentation-exam, as well as oral defence of their thesis research, and a clinical case study exam in either internal medicine, surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics or gynaecology. Following successful exam completion, students are awarded a Master’s Degree and the title of "Physician" (MD). The Degree is recognised globally, allowing graduates to practice in any EU member state or country outside the EU. Some graduates continue in Romania with their area of specialisation, while others return to their home country or another location worldwide to seek residence for their practice.
Dentistry is a six year course taught in English and which falls in line with EU Medical curricula guidelines (12 semesters). Courses are segmented into two categories, each with a focus on overall student preparation and professional stream: 62% stomatological courses and 38% medical, surgical and fundamental theory. From year one to year five, students are required to work through summers in university affiliated hospitals, clinics or dentistry offices for a minimum of four weeks (20 days, 8 hours/day = 160 hrs), amounting to at least 800 hours over the span of five years. During year six, students need to cover a collection of integrated courses on complex oral treatment training and practical study and some that are pertinent to special and rare cases. They must also write a dissertation on a topic chosen in conjunction with their instructor. To qualify, students must sit the State written examination that will assess the student’s dental medical knowledge in both practice and procedures. They will also need to partake in a practical examination in four subjects, namely clinical cases, Orthodontics, Dental Prosthetics and Radiology. Finally, students must present their Diploma thesis with a presentation and defence before a board of accomplished Dentists and relevant Professors. Following successful completion of these final year requirements, students are awarded a Master’s Degree and the title of Dentist. Following this, some graduates do continue with their chosen area of specialisation within Romania, due to the availability of state funding and the widespread need for dentists in the country. Dentistry graduates from Romanian Universities include renowned professionals who have contributed substantially to the field, with cutting-edge innovations in Air Abrasion, Braces and Diode Laser treatments.
