International Collaborations of the Faculty of Medicine

International collaborations play a significant role in the life of the Faculty of Medicine both in education and research.

Erasmus mobility


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.
