The outstanding professional activities of Semmelweis University’s graduate students and alumni community are recognized around the world, and with their work and knowledge gained here they also support the progress of medical and health sciences. Throughout their careers, they have been important ambassadors of Semmelweis University who are proudly considered by the alma mater. They are always welcome here, as it is like coming home to us,”
– said Dr. Tamás Hegedüs, Director of the Alumni Board.
The institution welcomes back the members of the international alumni to the meeting, all those who have studied and graduated from Semmelweis University in international training in the past four decades.
