The American Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation (NCFMEA) decided to extend the positive assessment of the Polish accreditation system of medical schools for further three years. The good NCFMEA assessment results in the presence of students from the United States at Polish universities and demonstrates a high level of Polish medical education.
On September 21st, in the American Department of Education, the Polish delegation of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Polish Accreditation Committee (PKA) and representatives of the Conference of Rectors of University Medical Schools (KRAUM) on the accreditation of the Polish medical schools. The delegation, chaired by Under-secretary of State at the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, prof. Lukasz Szumowski has provided members of the American commission with a series of information on the course of medical studies, the rules of examinations, the management of universities, as well as professional career of medical graduates. The meeting was the conclusion of a lengthy evaluation process, the result of which is an extension of the accreditation. One of the members of the Polish delegation was prof. Janusz Moryś, head of the MUG’s Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology.
The American Committee on Foreign Medical Education and Accreditation committee has been giving the Polish medical schools positive ratings continuously since 1997.
