At the end of the program the graduates are awarded the MD degree and receive a medical diploma recognized in the European Union, USA, Canada and most other countries of the world (for precise information on diploma recognition in particular countries, consult appropriate legal acts).Having completed the basic science part of the study programme, the students are eligible to sit for the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) Step I and for the USMLE Step II on completion of the clinical part of the programme.Foreign students who decide to start their medical education at the Medical University of Warsaw can get a financial support by applying for student loans in their home countries.As far as the assessment of the students` achievements is concerned, the theoretical knowledge of the medical students is checked in the form of tests during the courses or/and written/oral exams at the end of the courses.
