The Grigore T. Popa University of Medicine and Pharmacy was established in 1879 and named in honour of the famous Romanian scientist Grigore T. Popa. It is one of the oldest universities in Romania and offers four faculties: Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Dentistry, Faculty of Pharmacy and Faculty of Medical Bioengineering.

The university is in Iași, which is one of the largest cities in Romania, located in the North-East part and only 500km from the capital city. The city is spread over seven valleys and is colloquially nicknamed “city of the seven hills”. While not a bustling metropolis it does have a young cosmopolitan spirit due to its almost 50,000 students. Iasi is a cultural hub with its National Theatre and “Luceafarul” Theatre one can expect to be entertained by the best string quartets in Europe the “Voces” Quartet at the G.E Philharmonic. If you’re so inclined, you can even visit the jewel of Iași known as The Palace of Culture. It is home to museums of history, science and art. Close to the Palace you have an extensive “lifestyle centre” which is consists of a shopping mall, food court, event halls and even a multiplex cinema.

The first three years are pre-clinical. They emphasise on the fundamental subjects—for example, Anatomy, Physiology, Histology, Microbiology, Pharmacology, Biochemistry and Biophysics. The last three years are clinical with a focus on surgery and preventative medicine with more of an emphasis on practical work and visiting patients in hospitals and clinics.

There are no graduate-entry programmes at this university, but student transfers are possible.

The address of the university is Strada Universității 16, Iași 700115, Romania.
