A team of Polish and international scientists lead by assoc. prof. Łukasz Szarpak from Maria Sklodowska-Curie Medical University in Warsaw and including dr. Marek Dąbrowski from PUMS Department of Medical Education has developed a device to help medical staff work on patients with suspected infectious diseases. Schematics of the isolation device have been submitted to the Polish Patent Office.

The Poznan Council of Rectors comprising rectors of all public higher education institutions of our city and presided by PUMS Rector Andrzej Tykarski has issued the following statement regarding the recent events in the country:

Due to the fact that the number of coronavirus infections has reached its all-time high in Poland and that Poznan has been designated "red zone" for the level of required anti-pandemic restrictions, Rector Andrzej Tykarski has issued a new regulation to update our guidelines for students and teachers to keep our community and learning environment safe.

According to the recent communication by the ECFMG students and graduates of Polish medical schools now have the option to complete their ECFMG certification and to be exempted from sitting the USMLE Step 2CS while this examination is suspended due to coronavirus pandemic. This opens the possibility for PUMS students and graduates to complete their professional licensing despite the temporary unavailability of the Clinical Skills examination.

The academic year 2020/2021 has been officially inaugurated by Rector Andrzej Tykarski in a ceremony that took place on October 2. It included a speech by the Rector, immatriculation of new students, presentation of awards and degrees, as well as a lecture by Prof. Iwona Mozer-Lisewska.
