Hands-on approach, contact with patients and intensive clinical immersion
We realize that effective learning is based on hands-on experience. This is why we implement cadaver labs, clinical rotations with patients, practice with standardized patients and medical simulation from the earliest possible stages of the training.

Curriculum tailored to the needs of international students
We make sure that our programs and teaching methods are in line not only with Polish and European standards, but also other international requirements, in order to facilitate our graduates' licensing procedures and improve employment opportunities back in their home countries, be it the USA, Canada, Taiwan, Norway or Thailand.

Effective teaching
High standards of education and committed teachers are essential for any school to succeed, but verification of knowledge with useful feedback is also a key factor in the process. This is why we implement objective, standardized examinations provided by the US National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) as end-of-course evaluation in our medical programs.

More than 1,500 employees of the School are teaching and research staff.  A majority of our faculty have received Ph.D. and post-graduate degrees, and they hold the titles of professor or assistant professor in: medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physiotherapy, and other areas of science. Many of them are also members of international scientific societies and committees as renowned specialists in their fields, as well as national expert consultants.

OSCE-type exams and mock licensing exams

Objective structured clinical examinations are widely used in health sciences to practically assess skills and competencies in a realistic clinical setting. As such they are often part of the licensing examination process of various national medical boards. We make sure our students are well prepared for these evaluations by practicing in clinical skills simulation rooms with actor patients, offering mock OSCE exams and a number of student-administered free practice CS rooms that are adequately equipped.

Free of charge counseling and psychological services

CAPS -- Counseling and Psychological Services - support students, their performance and well-being during their time at PUMS. Studying abroad and leaving one's support network back home can be difficult. This is why English-speaking psychologists and advisors are available to our international students free of charge all year long.

All of them are located within walking/biking distance from most of the University hospitals, teaching facilities, sports facilities and the library.
