Subsidiary Vratsa


The transition to the Medical University – Sofia requires an academic structure. That is why two Departments are formed:

  •         Medico-social science
  •         Healthcare

The education in all theoretical disciplines meets the legal requirements for a subsidiary – over 70% of the lecturers are delivered by PhD or doctor’s degree lecturers from the Medical University – Sofia.

The practical training is conducted at the accredited healthcare institutions, social and medico-social institutions as well.

The education in the two specialties – nurse and midwife lasts for 4 years and the students are awarded Bachelor’s degree in professional direction healthcare.

Post-graduate specializations are as follows:

  •        Social activities for nurse – 1 year for students with Bachelor’s degree in nursing;
  •        Breastfeeding, balanced and healthy diet consultant – 1 year for graduated nurses, midwifes and doctor’s assistants.

All successfully graduated students get a specialty-certificate.
