Teaching hospital

The university is proud to be the only institution in the region that is certified to organize the Kaplan USMLE Step 1 Preparatory Course, and the MCCQE1 Preparatory Course which are held each summer. The campus is home to the largest teaching hospital in Hungary with more than 2,900 beds.

The university offers medical programs with worldwide accreditation, including the World Health Organization, the New York State Education Department, the Medical Board of California and the Medical Councils of Israel, Ireland, Iran and Norway.

“Studying at the University of Debrecen is much more than acquiring knowledge. Just during my first year I already made life-long friendships, got to play handball with the Medical faculty team and was able to experience research first-hand. 

“The facilities are well equipped to fully deliver the lectures and practices which makes learning easier and straightforward. The community life and the support from the senior students are also a strong point at the university.”
