The curriculum of the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry consists of five years of medical and dental courses. Upon completing the course, the student is entitled to receive a DMD diploma (“LEKARZ-DENTYSTA” title).
The first two years deliver knowledge from basic, preclinical disciplines with an introduction to clinical sciences. The following three years focus on dental disciplines and clinical studies. The duration of the program is 10 semesters, with a total number of 5 000 hours of lectures and practical classes.
Each year awards 60 ECTS points.
A new system of education, so-called outcome-based, has been implemented at PMU.
Learning outcomes are statements of what a student is expected to know, understand, and/or be able to demonstrate after the completion of a process of learning.
The outcomes are based on the following essential elements of a competent and reflective practitioner:
- What does the student know (demonstrating evidence of knowledge, assessing comprehension, assessing the application, assessing analysis and synthesis).
- What the student can do (practical skills ).
- The student as a professional (competencies - a dynamic combination of attributes, abilities, and attitudes).
These three primary elements give rise to seven domains, which students will have to master during four academic years:
- Morphological sciences
- The scientific basis of medicine
- Preclinical sciences
- Behavioural sciences with elements of professionalism
- Clinical sciences in general medicine
- Clinical sciences in dentistry
- The legal and organizational basis of medicine
The fifth academic year (ninth and tenth semesters) will comprise 30 weeks of practical training in the following fields of dentistry:
- Conservative Dentistry
- Dental Surgery
- Periodontal and Mucous Membrane Diseases
- Maxillo-facial Surgery
- Integrated Paedodontics
- Integrated Conservative Dentistry
The academic year starts on October 1st and finishes on June 30th. It includes two semesters: the winter semester (beginning in October and finishing in January) and the spring semester (beginning in February and finishing by the end of June).
Examination sessions are in January/February and in June/July.
The students have one week of a semester break. During the winter semester, there are two weeks of Christmas holidays and one week of Easter holidays during the spring semester.
Each September, all prospective students can improve their knowledge in chemistry, physics, and biology during the pre-courses organized by the University.
The newcomers each year are welcome by the English Program Students‘ Parliament.
