I was recently accepted to the 2nd Faculty of Medicine at Charles University in Prague, and Jagiellonian University in Krakow. I'm struggling to make a decision regarding where to attend!! I've included some information about myself down below, to give an idea about my future aspirations. I would love to hear feedback and opinions about each university. It would be especially beneficial if you study/studied at one so I can gain some insight into each!!

  • I'm a US citizen but graduated highschool overseas
  • Plan to pursue residency in the US following MD
  • Would prefer modern facilities to study in
  • Enjoy the European lifestyle/aesthetic
  • Appreciates an international community

If you want to pursue a residency in the US, go to medical school in the US. Even the newest, weakest DO program in the US would be a better option than a European MD if you ultimately want to practice in the US. IMGs have it very rough nowadays.
