Exchange Programmes

Erasmus+


Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad.

Studying abroad is a central part of Erasmus+ and has been shown to have a positive effect on later job prospects. It is also an opportunity to improve language skills, gain self-confidence and independence and immerse yourself in a new culture.

Erasmus+ also offers the chance to combine studying abroad with a traineeship. Opportunities are available for students at Bachelor, Master or Doctoral levels.

Basic information about the Erasmus+ programme can be found at the following website: http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/

Information for students coming for an exchange semester or year to the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Palacký University Olomouc can be found under Information for incoming students.

Information for students of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, Palacký University Olomouc who would like to travel abroad within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme can be found under Information for outgoing students.

Information for incoming students

Dear students, we are happy that you chose our Faculty. All the (general) important information regarding Erasmus+ study stay here at Palacký University Olomouc can be found at the website of the International Relations Office of the Rectorate.

Please bear in mind that the co-ordinator from your home institution has to nominate you first. After they submit your online nomination, you will receive an e-mail with information and a link to access the application form. All the communication is done through the online nomination and application platform (mobility.upol.cz), including choosing of courses. Later, your application will be transferred to our study system (Portal) where you can generate and possibly sign the Learning Agreement for Studies (our system is connected to EWP so you can do the LA through it as well as sign it online if your University is connected as well).

You can chose most of the courses which are part of the respective study plan at our Faculty (available in English):

Students from Slovakia and students speaking Czech can also choose from these study plans:

Please note that some of the courses are not available to Erasmus+ students (e.g. Infectious Diseases 1 and 2; Obligatory Practice in General Practitioner's Office). Courses named as "clinical practice" are also not available as they are not courses as such but summer practices organised by the students themselves.
Also please note that some of the courses might have a limited number of spots available (especially these courses are usually tight: Pediatrics, Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, Emergency Medicine). First come first serve basis.

IMPORTANT: In the 2024/2025 academic year there will most probably be only one group of the English programme General Medicine in the 5th year. That means that in most of the 5th year’s subjects there will most probably be a capacity issue and it can be difficult to join courses from that study year.

Please note that the timetables for the upcoming academic year are usually not ready before the end of May.

The Academic Year Calendar is available on the Faculty webpage.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your studies at our Faculty, please contact Ms. Petra Nakládalová, Faculty Erasmus+ officer (petra.nakladalova@upol.cz).

New rules of the Erasmus+ Programme

(valid from the academic year 2014/2015)

Within the framework of the new Erasmus+ Programme a new rule has been implemented. According to this new rule, students can participate on both study stays and traineeships repeatedly. The condition is that in each of the study cycles the student cannot spend more than 12 months on Erasmus mobility (study stays and traineeships combined). Students whose studies are not divided into Bachelor and Masrer have this limit increased to 24 months. Please note that mobilities taken in the actual study cycle within the previous Erasmus programme (2007/08-2013/14.) are counted into this limit as well.

Other Possibilities

Besides the Erasmus+ programme the students of our Faculty have the chance to use other mobility programmes. There are, for example, the traineeships organised by the IFMSA student organisation available to our students. Other offers can be found below.

Please NOTE that according to the Study and Examination Code students are obliged to report their planned study stays or mobility (incl. traineeships) abroad. All stays that last 5 or more days have to be entered into STAG. Please report your planned mobility in time (before its start) to Petra Nakládalová (petra.nakladalova@upol.cz). If a mobility is not reported, it will not appear in STAG, thus will not appear on your Diploma Supplement.

Aurora International Traineeship Programme

The AURORA European Universities Alliance is here to extend the offer of relevant student traineeships abroad. Your traineeship shall take place in one of the countries involved in the AURORA European Universities Alliance International Traineeship Programme, i.e. Austria, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, and Spain. Its duration is minimum 6 weeks and maximum 5 months. See more information on the IRO UP webpage.

Lighting the Flame: Sparking Interest in Hematology

I am writing from the European Hematology Association (EHA). I am managing a program called: Lighting the Flame (LtF). It seeks to offer medical students with no medical specialty yet decided a clearer image of what hematology entails (in clinic, lab, and research), as well as networking and mentorship opportunities.

Lighting the Flame is fully in English and free of charge program which consists of three phases:

- Online phase: Explore hematology in our online campus. Here we offer opportunities to participate in online courses (lymphoma, acute myeloid leukemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, etc.) online live webinars, workshops, and events related to hematology.

- Phase 2: Summer retreat for selected participants. Three days of face-to-face trainings, mentoring and community.

- Phase 3: Summer retreat. The previous cohort come to second one to go deeper in hematology.

We think Lighting the Flame is a beneficial initiative for medical students who might be interested in learning more about or selecting hematology as their specialization. You can find more information about the program on the enclosed PDF.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation. We hope to hear from you soon and welcome your students to Lighting the Flame.

Kind regards,

Daniel Delmas Martin
Project Manager Education

***

Dear Lighting the Flame community,

Following on the Lighting the Flame program, I just wanted to communicate that the application for the upcoming retreat has been open. We will be in Estonia from July 10 to 14 and it will be a great time of mentorship and trainings for 25 participants. The perfect time to take their medical career to the next level.

To apply, the participant needs to login on our campus (register first if needed), and then complete the application form. I have created the enclosed PDF with a summary of the information. I would appreciate if you could support me once again to disseminate it among the students.  

Finally, I wanted to thank you again for your invaluable help and time spreading this project.

Kind regards,

Daniel Delmas Martin
