The Medical University of Gdańsk (MUG) is the largest medical university in northern Poland, located in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe with an old town and beautiful sandy beaches. The MUG educates nearly 6000 undergraduate and postgraduate students at 4 Faculties: Health Sciences, Medicine, Pharmacy and the Intercollegiate Faculty of Biotechnology.

The MUG is ranked the 7th among all the Polish universities and the 1st Polish medical higher education institution in the 2018 edition of the ranking conducted by the Perspektywy Education Foundation. In the last 5 years the MUG advanced from the 20th to the 7th place in that ranking. It is also ranked in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), known as the Shanghai Ranking.

International students constitute above 17% of the MUG’s students and represent more than half of all international students in Gdańsk. The MUG organises the Orientation Weeek, a special week of introductory activities for first-year medical students to introduce them to medical school life and to formally induct into the profession of medicine. The campus area is situated very close to the classroom buildings. It consist of 4 dormitories with space for 1000 students, the students club „Medyk”, a grocery shop and a photocopy shop. There is also a canteen, which offers meals at student-friendly prices. All the dormitories are connected to the Internet.

The scientific excellence of the MUG was confirmed in 2012 when the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education recognised the Faculty of Pharmacy with Subfaculty of Laboratory Medicine as one of 6 Leading National Research Centre (KNOW).

The MUG constantly improves its clinical and teaching facilities. In the end of 2011 the University Clinical Centre has been successfully modernised. Our main hospital – the Invasive Medicine Centre (IMC) is one of the most modern hospitals in Europe. The new MUG’s investments – Non-Invasive Medicine Centre (NIMC) and the Sports Centre are co-financed by the state budget and both will be completed in the end 2018. Together with the IMC, the NIMC will be one of the largest and newest hospital complexes in Poland.

The MUG cooperates with more than 50 universities and scientific centres around the world, i.e. it conducts an exchange of students and faculties in the framework of the Erasmus+ programme and is an active member of European organisations – the ScanBalt and the Baltic Sea Region University Network.

The MUG provides health care to residents of the Pomeranian Region and the neighbouring regions, as well as actively supports public health projects.
