Why study medicine in Latvia? Our Medical programme is specifically designed to teach students the core competencies that are required in order to become highly skilled doctors who upon graduation are capable to pursue a wide variety of careers.
This programme is characterised by student cooperation and active engagement in group work. Studies involve working on a series of patient-centred problems, revealing the basic principles that influence human health and disease. The medical knowledge and practical clinical skills are obtained by giving students the opportunity to work with patients as early as in the 3rd year.
The Faculty of Medicine offers professional education, and the opportunity to study medicine under the guidance of professors from Latvian universities and hospitals, as well as from abroad. As a student of the “Medicine” programme, you will acquire up-to-date knowledge and skills, which are competitive in Europe and the rest of the world.
Theoretical disciplines, which comprise subjects from different fields of sciences – anatomy, histology, physiology, medical chemistry and biochemistry, as well as the humanities – philosophy, psychology, languages.
Disciplines regarding pathological conditions and processes, which already include basic clinical disciplines.
Disciplines that transform the knowledge gained in previous years into clinical skills – a competence that is needed by every modern doctor.
To become a certified doctor you may continue your studies in the Residency in Medicine programme, choosing the profession that suits you.
Studies may be continued in the RSU Master’s and Doctoral programmes (Rehabilitation, Public Health, Health Management only availble in English, Doctoral studies are available in Latvian only)
