International collaborations play a significant role in the life of the Faculty of Medicine both in education and research.
In the recent years, the number of student mobilities has increased. We are constantly establishing new Erasmus agreements (currently 56 active) since the program provides students with the outstanding opportunity of professional development recognized all over Europe. International experience is important not only to learn languages but also to create new relationships which can help medical students in their future career.

IFMSA exchange program
The Medical Student Association of Szeged (SZOE) is responsible for the exchange program. 40-50 medical students from Szeged have the opportunity to do their medical electives each year abroad and the same number of foreign students are received at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Szeged. Both incoming and outgoing students have a very positive feedback on the one-month traineeship.
