Pilsen is located one hour from Prague in the foothills of the Šumava mountains in the west of the Czech Republic. The city is home to one of our faculties of medicine, and also hosts the University of West Bohemia. Our Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen offers undergraduate medical and dentistry studies and a variety of postgraduate programmes based at the new Biomedical Centre, affiliated to the University Hospital.
