The Victor Babeș University of Medicine and Pharmacy Timișoara, or UMF Timisoara as it’s also known as was founded in 1944 when King Michael I of Romania signed the decree-law No. 660. It was first founded as a small faculty and as part of the Western University. It originally had only 416 students enrolled in the university in its first year but now boasts an impressive 4270 students with 700 or so academic staff. The university was named after the prominent Romanian scientist Victor Babeș, one of the founders of modern microbiology who also wrote one of the first treatises for bacteriology in the world.
The university has three faculties which in turn have their own sub specialisations; the Faculty of Medicine (Medicine, Registered Nurses, Physiotherapy, Radiology and Imaging, Diet and Nutrition), the Faculty of Dental Medicine (Dental Medicine, Dental Technique, Registered Nurses in Dentistry), and finally the Faculty of Pharmacy (Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Assistants).
