Poland prides on top-class medical universities. Their popularity is confirmed each year by thousands of students from countries like USA, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and others, who take up the challenge and enroll for medical and paramedical studies. Thus, they are sure to get high quality education and a diploma recognized worldwide at the same time paying much less than in Western Europe, America or Australia.

Polish medical universities boast state-of-the-art facilities and expert staff that assure globally recognized research achievements in many scientific areas. Did you know that the first full face transplant in the USA was done by a team of surgeons led by a Polish doctor, Maria Siemionow, who graduated from the Poznan University of Medical Sciences?

If you choose to study in a medical university in Poland you will not need to worry about your qualifications being recognized anywhere else. Being part of the Bologna process, Polish universities will offer you a degree recognized in whole Europe. What is more, Polish medical universities are listed and accredited by the most important institutions across the globe, like International Medical Education Directory (IMED), Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) or an American reputable organization National Board of Medical Examiners. Furthermore, Polish Universities cooperate with the best in the world, eg recently the Medical University in Lodz started cooperation with two top universities in USA: University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in Atlanta and the MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC, Houston, Texas), which is the largest and most recognized center of cancer treatment and research in the world.
