What to Know Before you Apply?
The length of the CHP Program is up to you. The minimum is 1 week but we recommend to plan your placement for 2 to 4 weeks. It is up to you if you want to stay at one department for several weeks or want to experience every week another one. Simply let us now via the CHP System. More weeks mean more visited departments, more study materials, extended knowledge of the hospital and specialty routines, and the maximum benefit of your stay with us.

How to Apply?
If you have found all the information you wanted to know about the Departments and Mentoring Teams, the only thing you need to do is to APPLY NOW! The Application Form is simple to fill in! Apart from your contact details, you are asked to choose your desired specialty, date of arrival and length of your participation in the CHP Program (in weeks). That's it!
After you apply, you obtain a login to the CHP System, with limited free access that will help you through the registration process. Afterwards, we check your preferences and the availability of placements, and you are asked to pay the Administration Fee (290 GBP/430 USD or 395 EUR). The Administration Fee is non-refundable as it includes administrative costs to process your application and personal data.
To have your placement booked and guaranteed, you are asked to pay the Final Payment of the total price according to the number of weeks you apply for. Please, check the Final Payment costs bellow, e.g. for 1 week placement you pay the final payment of 809 GBP/1.109 EUR or 1.199 USD). We inform you about all of the payment details and always confirm when the payments have been received.
We will process your application as soon as possible, and ensure that the departments you are interested are currently available for when you plan to arrive. If for some reason your preferred departments are already booked, we will contact you to suggest alternative departments or dates of arrival.
I helped with the launch of the Czech Hospital Placements Program, and I will do my best to ensure that the entire process of student placement in our teaching hospital goes as smoothly as possible.
I believe that the CHP Program is a great opportunity for both students and mentors. Students who want to get familiar with their future profession will see real professionals in action as well as the everyday realities of having a job in a hospital environment. This experience will surely help them in choosing the right field or specialty.
Mentors, who once were students themselves, can share the details of their everyday work in a prestigious hospital. They can explain to students the personal fulfillment they feel as healthcare professionals and show them how important the decision between the various specialties is. This sharing of experiences and personal bonds among experienced professionals and promising young students will consequently bring benefits to our patients in the form of improved treatment and quality of care.

How far in advance should I apply?
There are several steps in the application process. After the initial application, you will need to visit your physician in order to receive clearance to travel, as well as obtain Traveler's Insurance. Due to the limited space in our program, and our desire to have a very small ratio of students to mentors, some placements are filled far in advance. Because of this, we suggest that you begin the application process at least three months in advance, but the sooner you apply, the greater chance of being placed in the department you are most interested in. If for some reason you are interested in starting the application process within this three months window, please contact us directly and we will do everything we can to expedite your application.
I believe it will be interesting for you to see medicine outside of the Anglo-Saxon system because the styles of treatment and management are different. Here, we have a system where a more experienced person supervises you, provides feedback, and helps you by sharing their knowledge and experience. You will see entirely different workflow management, and every single person you will meet will have some influence on you. It is said that your first mentor has a huge impact on how you will behave as a doctor or healthcare professional in general.
