American medics in Prague hospitals

120 students from 21 Schools of Medicine from USA, Canada, Australia and some other countries are now at trainee-ship in Prague hospitals.

The trainee-ship is funded by chief of Health Centre at Narodni street Martin Jan Stransky who was born and studied in USA. He says that it is important to show medicine in Czech Republic to western students.

He want to show them differences in American and Czech health care and that most of things depends on society. Czech attitude to patients is different as well as attitude and financial appreciation of society to doctors.

There also differences in the budget. Europe cares about their patients and health insurance is guaranteed by a state in contrast to USA. Next interesting thing for medics is that same medical services in Czech Republic costs only a tenth of service in USA.
