The winning streak of graduates from the UWM Faculty of Medicine continues. In addition, all graduates in the field of Medicine in Olsztyn who took the Medical Final Exam this year successfully passed the exam. Other universities were not so successful. The examination was taken by 45 graduates from the University of Warmia and Mazury. It is worth emphasizing that the lowest result obtained by OIsztyn graduates in the exam was 112 points. This is a significantly higher score in comparison to the results obtained by graduates from other universities. The University of Warmia and Mazury trailed only the Poznań University of Medical Sciences (1st place) and the Łódź Medical University (2nd place).
“Once again, we have proved our high position in the ranking of all faculties of medicine in Poland. Two years ago we took first place, last year fourth, and now third. We will try to maintain such a high level,” says Prof. Andrzej Rynkiewicz, Dean of the UWM Faculty of Medicine.
The credit for the dynamic growth of the Faculty of Medicine and outstanding achievements of its graduates goes to the professors who initiated the establishment of the faculty: Prof. Ryszard Górecki, Rector of the UWM and Prof. Wojciech Maksymowicz, Vice-Rector for Collegium Medicum. It is they who promoted the idea of opening medical studies in Olsztyn.
“During the official opening of the Centre for Medical Simulation, I talked with the Ministry of Health, Konstanty Radziwiłł and the Speaker of the Senate of the Republic of Poland, Stanisław Karczewski. They both admitted that they had doubts as to opening medicine studies in Olsztyn. Now they are convinced that it was a great decision. It is worth drawing attention to the fact that the best academic medical centres are located in smaller towns,” the Dean emphasizes. “Certainly, we will do our best to provide our students with even better study conditions. We are constantly striving to create a modern hospital to be used by all inhabitants of our region,” Prof. Rynkiewicz added.
