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



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 to the country 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 has received awards from National Geographic, the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, as well as individual distinctions from Forbes Magazine.


PUMS in Indonesia -- a voluntary initiative operating in partnership with Kaohsiung Medical University, bringing together members of PUMS faculty, alumni and students. The aim is to provide free medical aid and basic medical education to underdeveloped parts of Indonesia.



Redemptoris Missio -- a charity foundation created in 1992 by the scientific community of PUMS with the goal of creating professional resources for Polish medical missionary workers in the world. RM is active on 5 continents and is a member of the Medicus Mundi International network.



Student Pediatric Society -- within a broad scope of activities of this student organization there are notable outreach initiatives like hospital pediatric ward visits, teddy bear donation drives, workshops with primary school pupils and CPR training, or even knitting hats for newborn patients.
