Institute of General Medicine

General informations and history


General medicine is a specialized field that provides general health care to the adult population. It has a multidisciplinary character and integrates knowledge from various medical specializations.

In 2014, a new compulsory subject General Medicine for students of the 5th year was created at the Faculty of Medicine. For the first 5 years it was listed as “Family Medicine” within “Internal Medicine”. Since the school year 2019/2020 it is a separate subject called General Medicine. It is a compulsory, evaluated, credited course. The aim of creating a separate subject General Medicine is to become medical students more familiar with the work of general practitioners, to inform them about the possibility of postgraduate study in the form of a resident program. The first guarrantee of the subject General medicine was MUDr. Beata Spanikova PhD.

Since the school year 2023/2024 is the next guarrantee of the subject General medicine Assoc. Prof. MUDr. Marek Kučera, PhD., MHA, MPH, which is also guarrantee for postgraduates (specialty training) education for gerenal practiotioners.
