Study at Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin

Pomeranian Medical University in Szczecin, established in 1948, is a public (state-owned) medical university and offers studies in English at the Faculty of Medicine (since 1996) and Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (since 2006).

Currently, the university educates about 700 students on English programmes. Over 550 students have already successfully graduated from the Faculty of Medicine. The Faculty of Dentistry has over 50 alumni. Each year the university offers 120 seats at the Faculty of Medicine and 30 seats at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry.

Practical classes (Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry)

English programme students come from about 30 countries, mainly from Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Faroe Islands and Finland) but also from Austria, Germany, Greece, Portugal and Spain. And we have a great number of applicants from non-European countries such as Canada, China, Egypt, Israel and Syria.
Given the fact that English programme students are from the most remote corners of the globe, studies at the PMU are not only an excellent training for future doctors, but also a fantastic opportunity to live and work in a diverse environment where one can learn a new language, understand another culture or even observe different scientific approaches and techniques.

Modern academic facilities

English programme students follow the same curriculum as Polish programme students, meaning they undergo the same clinical and theoretical courses throughout 6 and 5 years of education at the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry respectively. Most of the classes take place at the PMU Independent Public Clinical Hospitals (no.1 and no.2).

Our students have an opportunity to take one year of Erasmus + exchange in the following countries: Germany, France, Italy or Spain. Also, the best students of the 6th year at the Faculty of Medicine are able to take a practical year abroad.
