Having such a deciding impact on human life, great responsibility and potential of helping other people, medical professions are different from a regular 9 to 5 occupation. More often than not they are chosen on a sense of calling. PUMS community is made up of individuals with a drive to make a positive change in human health and well-being. Here are some examples of voluntary outreach initiatives we are currently involved in.

 

Leczymyzmisja

Leczymy z Misją (Treating with a Mission) - independent volunteering association started by PUMS students. It provides developmental aid to Kenyan hospitals by shipping medical equipment and conducting training for the local medical staff. The volunteer medical, dental, midwifery, optometry and physiotherapy students, as well as alumni doctors, work on various specialized medical projects designed basing on the organization’s experience and medical guidelines to cover the essential and genuine needs of Kenyan patients. The project received awards from National Geographic, Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, as well as individual distinctions by Forbes Magazine.
