Poznan University of Medical Sciences (PUMS) is one of the best and largest medical universities in Poland with 90 years of academic experience and with great potential for development. Our University is a leading medical school in Poland. It is a major educational, research and clinical center. Clinical teaching and research are mainly based on cooperation with 6 clinical hospitals. Altogether, there are more than 8200 students studying currently at the University, among which there are 1008 students of the English Language Programs.
The University continuously seeks to develop learning process and teaching techniques. Therefore, it broadens the cooperation with foreign institutions and universities in terms of joint research, joint participation in international programs and research projects as well as in joint publications and scientific conferences, exchange of students and teachers. PUMS cooperates with many foreign institutions from the whole world.
Poznan University of Medical Sciences began the careful planning of an exciting new medical curriculum, a competency based curriculum. In this curriculum, students are given specific subject matter and clinical objectives and outcomes by the faculty. Consequently, expectations and evaluations for students both in the basic sciences and in the clinics are made very clear. In addition, students will be instructed in communication skills, professionalism, interpretation and use of the scientific literature, diagnostic and treatment skills, rapport building with patients, sensitivity to moral, ethical, cultural, and social issues and life-long learning skills. Students will also receive training in problem based learning through extensive use of clinical vignettes in their basic sciences. The implementation of this curriculum, to be put into place in the near future, will make our Medical School a unique institution for students looking for a strong academic program where academic and clinical expectations are clearly defined. Such a curriculum will greatly increase the value of the degree at PUMS and facilitate good residency placement.
The University is widely recognized around the world. English programs are accredited, among other institutions, by US Department of Education, Educational Commission on Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), National Board of Medical Examiners, Medical Board of California, loan institutions in USA, Canada and Scandinavia.
