The Medical University of Warsaw in the heart of Poland is a modern European medical school with a long and beautiful tradition of teaching medicine and pharmacy. We educate more than 9,000 future medics, conduct innovative research and treat patients.

Every day we work to strengthen our position internationally. We have created a strong brand that is recognizable around the world.

Quality at its absolute best is what links all areas of the university’s activity. Groundbreaking research, high educational standards provided to young people from around the world, highly specialized medicine pursued at university hospitals, and newly opened facilities—all this makes the Medical University of Warsaw a school that bravely looks into the future and invests heavily in its development, always remembering that its foremost task is to help sick people.

The university is growing rapidly with new, technologically advanced educational and treatment facilities. The extent of research conducted at these is unheard of at Polish medical schools. The new facilities include a Library and Information Centre, a Centre for Preclinical Research, a Pediatric Hospital, a Rehabilitation and Sports Centre, a Centre for Medical Simulation, an Oncology Centre with a Hadron Radiotherapy Facility, a Dentistry Centre, and a Psychiatric Hospital.

In order to put the results of research conducted by our scientists to commercial use, we have been introducing certain pioneering solutions. We have established Poland’s first Academic Centre for Clinical Research, which is an open facility welcoming different institutions dealing with clinical research.

The Medical University of Warsaw is the Polish coordinator of two key initiatives of key significance to clinical research in Europe: the European Clinical Research Infrastructures Network (ECRIN) and the Innovative Medicines Initiative-Electronic Health Records for Clinical Research (IMI-EHR4CR).

In order to put research results to commercial use, the Medical University of Warsaw has established a company called Synergia WUM that works to raise funds for research, both public and private. As part of its tasks, the company also helps finance patent procedures and subsequent commercialization stages.

You cannot plan innovation, but you can design a system to support the commercialization process and this is what we have done here at the Medical University of Warsaw.

The world of today necessitates a dialogue and a lasting, strong relationship between the academic and business communities, so they can overcome the barriers which stem from their differing interests and the different ways in which they work.

I encourage you to visit the Medical University of Warsaw. Let’s meet and get to know each other!

Prof. Marek Krawczyk, M.D.
Rector, Medical University of Warsaw
