Medical Facilities

Health Examination in Your Home Country

All international students entering the Czech Republic for more than two months must undergo a health entrance examination which certifies one's state of good health for studying. This examination shall be performed by your general practitioner in your home country. 


Finding a General Practitioner in the Czech Republic

After you arrive in the Czech Republic, you shall find a general practitioner – a doctor who can help you if you get ill during your stay. 

Once you register your EHIC / once you get your health insurance card for non-EU nationals, you shall contact your Czech health insurance company and require a list of available general practitioners. (Note that it may happen that some of the doctors listed on the list might not register you due to the lack of English language skills.)

To be registered by a general practitioner's office, you will need to undergo an entrance health examination – to do so, the general practitioner may need you to provide your medical history (copies of documents issued by your general practitioner in your home country.)

You may also need to pay a registration fee. 

Once you are registered by a general practitioner's office in case of illness you always need to visit that general practitioner. He/she will provide you with a recipe for medicament.
