Faculty of Medicine
The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Latvia has a teaching staff of about 160 medical professionals, including 19 professors, 26 associate professors, 20 lecturers and 4 visiting professors. The lessons are conducted at different locations at the university, among others in the university hospital. Even though the study course is completely in English, the students are obliged to learn Latvian, to be able to communicate with the patients in the clinical part of their studies.
The faculty places great value on small learning groups, so that the personal contact between the students is guaranteed, everyone can follow the content and they can ask directly, if they have any questions or problems. As a student of medicine or dentistry, you have the opportunity to spend an Erasmus-semester, or one of the internships, abroad. The medical school of the university cooperates, among others, with the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.
