“Medyk” is also a traditional place for annual initiation ceremonies, as well as for the events of “Medykalia” – Days of Culture and Science for MUG Students, in May, when the whole campus is completely packed. Medykalia, celebrated annually by the Medical University, consists of numerous concerts and fun sports events, like ‘hospital bed races’ and ‘white coat parties’, which attract not only medical students to Dębowa Street.
