Please bring your proof of insurance with you. Before speaking to a psychiatrist, you will need to talk to a nurse first. The majority of nurses speak little or no English, so here are some helpful phrases to assist your communication:
- Hello, I am a student of the medical faculty:
Dobry den, jsem student/ studentka na lekarske fakulte.
- This is my first time as a patient in Bohunice Hospital
Poprve v nemocnici jako pacient/ka
- This is my insurance card.
To je muj karta pojištěnce.
- I need to speak to a doctor who can speak English.
Musim (potrebuji) mluvit s doktorem, ktery mluvi anglicky.

University psychological counselling services:Studying abroad is often described as an unforgettable and entirely positive experience. A little known fact, however, is that it is also a time of major changes and a lot of stress. At some point of your stay, you may feel down, lonely, anxious, homesick, lost in your new environment, etc. If Skyping with your family back home or hanging out with new friends does not help and you have been feeling out of place for a longer period of time, do not be afraid to ask for professional help. Contact the Counselling Centre of the Department of Psychology and Psychopathology, FoE, UP. Email: email@example.com. Likewise, students can get psychological help at the UP FoM. Contact the Study Department for more.
