EP. 75 - Medical School in Europe with Lucas Zborek

Medical School in Europe

Going to a medical school in Europe is exciting. When someone says they’re studying in Europe, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Perhaps green and luscious backgrounds with old architecture buildings? Well, perhaps this is how Hollywood painted it but being a medical student studying in Europe is a different scene. But don’t get us wrong, Europe is home to the top 10 best medical schools where students can go and study. What makes Europe the best country to study medicine?

We know there are significant differences in medical schools between the EU and the US, but what do we know about them? What are the different practices done in Europe that are not in the United States? For this episode, we would like to welcome Lucas Zbroek, a Medical Student currently doing his internship in England (United Kingdom). He will give us an insight into what it’s like to be a medical student in Europe and share his experiences with healthcare in this country.
