As a public medical school in Poland, PUMS is fully recognized by the Polish Ministry of Health, and Ministry of Science and Higher Education. We are accredited by the Polish Accreditation Committee, which is the statutory body responsible for the assessment of the quality of education provided by HEIs.


As part of the European Higher Education Area, PUMS follows the Bologna Process. Diplomas issued by the University are recognized and widely accepted not only in the EU, but worldwide. We make sure that our programs and teaching standards meet international requirements, as demonstrated by the success of our graduates in the US, Canada, Norway, Taiwan or the UK. Where  necessary, PUMS recognition has been confirmed by respective official bodies (medical and dental boards, ministries, etc.), e.g. in Thailand and Jordan.

Students of PUMS have also been deemed eligible for a number of education loans and scholarships offered in other countries for studies abroad, for example: the US Sallie Mae program, Ontario OSAP, Norwegian Lånekassen, Swedish CSN, German BAföG, Saudi government scholarships, etc.

The University is also a proud awardee of the HR Excellence in Research recognition presented by the European Commission, as well as of the ACEEU Engaged University Accreditation, following a positive evaluation by the Accreditation Council for Entrepreneurial & Engaged Universities.

Poland has now gained the status of applicant in the recognition program leading to streamlining the process of applying for medical licensing in the US and some other countries for medical students and graduates of Poland-based medicine programs.

Until the end of the year 2024, PUMS is meeting ECFMG eligibility requirements on individual level, as confirmed by our listing in the World Directory of Medical Schools (
