Re: Studying medicine in Switzerland

Hello everyone,
I am currently three years away from graduating high-school in Australia. I am very passionate about the sciences, medicine and the human brain. I am considering a career in brain (neuro) surgery. I have tried to complete research on what I want to do specifically, but to no avail. I would like to acquire a bachelors degree in anatomy from any high-credited university in Europe (preferable in the east). I would then hopefully like to be accepted into ETH Zürich, I have heard that it is highly accredited and that a degree from it would be a huge boost in my career. I was wondering what I would have to apply for (assuming it is a doctorate) and what I would have to do to apply. After graduating I would like to take residency in Luxembourg and hopefully move and work in the country. Overall, I would just like some general advice for everything here and a guide to what the steps along the way would be.
Thank you, Kmorr
So why dont you go to an Australian Uni to study? Would be more logical?

There's one major problem with this idea.

The number of places on human medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine courses is limited and changes from year to year. Students wishing to study medicine have to take an entrance exam.

"Council Recommendation of universities on the admission of foreign applicants to medical studies in Switzerland of November 19, 2015

1. With regard to admission to medical studies, the following foreign applicants are treated the same way as Swiss candidates:

a) nationals of Liechtenstein;

b) foreigners resident in Switzerland or Liechtenstein;

c) nationals of a Member State of the European Union, Iceland and Norway, which have in Switzerland a stay under the EU / EFTA marked "gainful activity" and may justify a professional activities closely with medical studies (Article 9, paragraph 3, Annex I ALCP..)

d) children, whatever their nationality, nationals of member countries of the European Union, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein in Switzerland if they have a residence permit as a member the family of an EU / EFTA citizens (article 3, paragraph 6, Annex I ALCP..);

e) foreigners domiciled in Switzerland whose parents are resident in Switzerland;

f) foreigners living in Switzerland who are married to a Swiss citizen or whose spouse is established in Switzerland for at least five years or in possession of a Swiss work permit for at least five years;

g) aliens domiciled in Switzerland holding a Swiss work permit for at least five years, respectively those domiciled in Switzerland whose parents have a Swiss work permit for at least five years;

h) foreign domiciled in Switzerland with a Swiss maturity certificate or maturity cantonal certificate recognized throughout Switzerland (according to the Federal Ordinance of 15 February 1995 fe-recognition of maturity certificates gymnasiale and the Rules of CDIP of 16 January 1995 on the recognition of certificates gymna-Siale maturity) or a professional maturity certificate completed by a certificate of additional tests (according to the Federal Ordinance of 19 December 2003 on the recon-naissance certificates of maturity professional for admission to Swiss universities);

i) children whose parents have diplomatic status in Switzerland;

j) refugees recognized by Switzerland.

2. To be treated the same way as Swiss applicants, foreign applicants must fulfill the following conditions:

a) Foreign mentioned in s. 1 letter. a to i, must have documents establishing their right of access to medical studies at the latest the day of the registration period for medical studies set by Swissuniversities. The certificate of graduation can be subsequently filed.

b) The refugees mentioned in s. 1 letter. I must have applied for asylum in Switzerland later than the day of the registration deadline for medical studies set by Swissuniversities and be granted asylum on or before the last day of the registration period of the university in which they obtained a place of study.

3. remain reserved general admission requirements of the University chosen by the candidate.

4. The recommendation of the CUS of 12 October 2006 is repealed."

Unless you're a Swiss/Lichtenstein national or have a long standing Swiss residence permit you simply won't stand a chance of being admitted.

Studying medicine in CZ - entrance exams, only a tiny fraction get admitted. People who pass still don't make it, are put on a couple of years long waiting list. High quality degree, with rounds and I. and II. attestations (specialization), 8 years in total, at least. I think they do have a small program for foreigners, in EN. After that you could get in a PhD program here, but you have to be working on a unique project that you develop through your regular med studies, already. Basically, it means no sleep for 12 years. If everything goes well.

He should work to getting into an Australian uni if he is really serious about this. Fantasy and reality are two separate things
