Why choose studying at the Faculty of Dental Medicine with Clinics?
The Faculty of Dental Medicine with Clinics, University of Sarajevo, was founded in 1960 as a Department at the Faculty of Medicine. Since 1974 it has been as an independent organisational unit that occupies an important position in the national and international higher education system.
The integrated study at the Faculty of Dental Medicine of the University of Sarajevo lasts for six years, i.e. 12 semesters, after which the title “Doctor of Dental Medicine” is awarded, and since 2019, the programme is also delivered in English. The study was designed in such a way that during the first two years, lectures and exams are taken from general and preclinical subjects, so that in this way students would be prepared to work with patients. After the second year, students are in direct contact with the patient, under professional supervision of teachers and assistants, and the Faculty provides them with necessary equipment and materials for work.
A vocational study of dental hygiene at the Faculty of Dental Medicine, University of Sarajevo, lasts for three years, i.e. 6 semesters, after which the “University Bachelor of Dental Hygiene” title is awarded.

The Faculty is equipped with 125 new Sirona dental chairs, where the teaching process and clinical work takes place, new IT equipment, a renovated and redesigned amphitheatre, and new 4K technology introduced in the teaching process.

Continuous efforts are being made to improve and modernise the curricula to align them with study programmes at recognised European Faculties.
