Program description

Doctor of Medicine programm (M.D.)

Faculty of Medicine was established in 1945. Its goals are inextricably linked with the centuries-old tradition of medical and natural science practices in Gdańsk, particularly in Gimnazjum Gdańskie (Gymnasium Gedanense) founded in 1558, and later given a more academic name (Gymnasium Academicum sive Illustre, Atheneum Gedanense).

Atheneum Gedanense Novum

Eminent doctors ran the department of medicine and anatomy, created in Gimnazjum Gdańskie. The most recognized lecturer was Joachim Oelhafius, a native of Gdańsk, mostly renowned for being the first in Northern Europe to perform a public autopsy. Equally outstanding was the anatomist Jan Kulmus, whose large anatomical atlas “Tabulae anatomicae” was published in Gdańsk in 1932. The work was released in numerous editions and was translated into several languages.

The Faculty of Medicine educates its students in three majors – medical (homogenous 6-year MSc studies) and medical stomatological (homogenous 5-year MSc studies), as well as dental techniques (3-year 1st degree BSc studies). The Faculty’s high level of education was confirmed by the Accreditation Committee for Medical Universities working at the Conference of Presidents of Medical Universities, and by The State Accreditation Committee, which granted the Faculty a 5-year-long accreditation for both MSc majors. Moreover, classes in the medical major are also conducted in English (since 2002).
