In their recent communication (https://www.ecfmg.org/news/2020/05/13/ecfmg-medical-school-accreditation-requirement-moved-to-2024/) the US Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) has established that their new accreditation policy regarding foreign medical schools will come into force in the year 2024. This will mark the switch from accreditation of individual schools to recognition of whole national accreditation agencies. In Poland, the responsible body is the Polish Accreditation Commission (PKA) - according to our recent communication with this agency, it has already initiated preparatory actions leading to submission of the official application for accreditation.

Until the year 2024 or possible earlier accreditation of PKA by the WFME, PUMS is meeting ECFMG eligibility requirements on individual level, as confirmed by our listing in the World Directory of Medical Schools (https://www.wdoms.org/).

Classes in the first years of all English-language programs in the new academic year 2020/2021 begin on August 31, 2020. Due to restrictions relating to the current pandemic the initial period of study - until September 25, 2020 - will be held entirely on-line.

We are planning to commence in-person classes for first year students on Monday, September 28, if the epidemiological situation and legal regulations in Poland do not change.

In its recent regulations, the Council of the European Union, has announced that the external borders of the European Union will be re-opened to non-essential travelers from specific outside countries. The allowed list currently does not include the USA or many other home countries of our students, but it will be updated every two weeks.

The University has secured funding for construction and equipment of a new wing at the K. Jonscher Pediatric Clinical Hospital to house their oncology and hematology wards, as well as many diagnostic labs and rehabilitation rooms, in a kid-friendly setting - providing space for psychological support and social rooms for parents.

Learn new research skills and dive deep into medical science topics of interest with Coursera e-learning platform - we are offering full access to all PUMS students, faculty and staff to the platform's complete library for free for a limited period.

Once in every four years the University community elects its representatives for all the highest academic offices. Throughout the first months of 2020, the School staff, faculty and students have made their decisions in a series of voting procedures. Meet the newly elected officials for the term of 2020-2024:
