Training in THCC

According to the feedback we have received, foreign students value highly the quality of the practice period spent here. Usual practice day consists of 6 working hours, but different agreements with hospital supervisors are possible. Tartu Health Care College is located in Tartu, but it does not automatically mean that all of your clinical practices will be carried out in Tartu. We cooperate with many institutions and have more than 300 practice bases all over the country.
Please wait for the confirmation of your placement location before booking accommodation!
