Thrilled to attend ceremonies for Hope Medical Institute (HMI) as they celebrated the medical students graduating from 3 of Poland’s leading medical schools. Working with HMI, U.S. students may apply to study medicine in Poland (with all classes conducted in English) and then complete clinical rotations back in the United States. Of course, for U.S. medical residency purposes, students are classified as foreign medical grads. However, the structure of Polish medical education (in line with European standards) allows application to Polish medical schools right out of high school, or after completing some college-level coursework. A little known option for bright students willing to study in central Europe!
