About Poznan University of Medical Sciences (PUMS)

Poznan University of Medical Sciences is arguably the best medical university in Poland and is particularly famous among (but not limited to) international students from the US and Canada. Its history dated back to 1920, which is when the Medical, Dental, and Pharmaceutical Faculties were established at the University of Poznan.

In 1950 however, the medical, dental and pharmacy faculties detached to form what is now the University of Medical Sciences in Poznan. As far as English courses are concerned, the university introduced them for the first time in 1993. PUMS boasts an impressive 27+ years of teaching medical sciences to students from all over the world.

Poznan University of Medical Sciences also runs a small advanced-medicine course aimed at American and Canadian degree holders, who study on a different system than the UK. Students in those countries usually study a pre-med Bachelor’s course specifically tailored to cover the first pre-clinical subjects of medicine. Then they apply for the 4-year graduate medicine programme. This medical school also accepts student transfers.

The university is located at Collegium Maius, Fredry 10, 61-701 Poznań, Poland.
