Student friendly University

It is a matter of vital importance for us to meet every expectation of the students attending our school. Our University puts emphasis on both academic and extracurricular development of the students. We have been striving to create a University in which the student, as its basic part, has a chance to develop and gain the best quality knowledge in the most student - friendly environment.

We are proud to say that we managed to achieve this goal, which was reflected in the 'Pro-Students University' award, received by Medical University of Lodz on 5th of November 2011 as the most student friendly University in Poland in the 'Student Society Distinctions' contest. This contest has been held since 2004 by the Polish Student Parliament. Each year the awards are granted in several categories. From all the categories the most prestigious is the 'Pro-Students University' Award given to Universities in which student rights and obligations are the highest value and the studying conditions are organized to provide the best quality of education.

The main goal of the contest is to promote the student friendly environment of the Institutions, Companies, Organizations and people connected with the academic surroundings as well as the Universities which provide the best education conditions and extracurricular opportunities of development for students.


Our University is listed in the International Medical Education Directory (IMED) which provides information about international medical schools that are recognized by the appropriate government agencies in the countries in which they are located.
In Poland it is the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Science and Higher Education.

Our programs are recognized by Educational Commission for ForeignMedical Graduates (ECFMG) that makes our students eligible to pursue a medical career in the USA and Canada (sit board exams and apply for residency and licensure).

Our medical and dentistry diplomas are also subject to automatic recognition in the European Union which Poland joined in May 2004.
