During your studies, a variety of teaching methods will be put into practice. Apart from the traditional lectures, the university has introduced practical exercises and seminars with smaller student groups. In addition to this, the students can register for extracurricular activities and research groups organized by every department. It is through these extracurricular activities and research groups that the Medical University Pleven tries to meet its mission to integrate students. Thanks to the small teaching groups and seminars, it is also possible for the university to evaluate each student individually. The university has special teaching facilities for practical exercises and the dissection of human bodies. As this is an important part of the degree, attendance is mandatory. Students, who wish to achieve excellent marks, need to attend lessons regularly.
The teaching staff is highly qualified and possesses extensive scientific experience. The lectures at the MU Pleven school of medicine are held in 24 departments, by more than 60 professors and around 300 assistant professors. Most of the teaching staff are members of national and international scientific or medical societies and authors of research projects. Teaching is carried out using different teaching methods, including theoretical lectures and practical exercises in small groups and seminars. In addition, students can attend extracurricular lectures and participate in scientific circles organised by the departments. Practical lessons take up a maximum of 6 students at a time.
Assistant professors, responsible for the instruction of the student groups during the semester, continuously assess and evaluate the knowledge of the students in every subject. Exams are held for every subject at the end of the semester during the 45-day exam phase. The final evaluation of the students’ knowledge at the end of the degree is assessed by an extensive examination which includes theory and practice. This examination is carried out by the state examination board.
