Brief introduction of the Faculty of Dentistry

The university-level teaching of dentistry has a tradition of more than 150 years in Hungary. Dentistry is a five-year program, the completion of which results in a Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree and allows graduates to open their own practices. After graduation, dentists may take part in specialty training, after which they receive a dental specialist certificate.

Students are introduced to special dental preclinical courses from the beginning of their undergraduate studies, though their curriculum is essentially identical to that of the medical students in the first two years. Beginning in the third year, dental subjects take up an increasingly large part of the curriculum, and the number of practical courses increase significantly as well. Students are assisted in their learning by the nearly 60 dentists who teach at the Faculty. As a result of the practice-oriented, small-group training, students are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to work independently and open their own practice after receiving their diplomas.

In addition to Hungarian, the Faculty also offers dentistry programs in English and German to students from all around the world. In recent years, the Faculty has achieved significant results in not only its undergraduate program, but in the areas of specialty training and continuing education as well. Through its activities the Vocational and Further Training Secretariat has earned the recognition of the European Community.

Since its foundation, over 5,000 dentists have graduated from the Faculty, out of which nearly 1,000 have been international students from 36 countries.

Brief introduction of the Faculty of Health and Public Administration

Semmelweis University’s “youngest” faculty is the result of over a decade of preparatory work; it was founded in 2010 with the participation of three institutions straddling the borders of natural and social science: the Institute of Health Informatics Development and Further Training, the Health Services Management Training Centre and the Institute of Mental Health. The Faculty offers Bachelor’s, Master’s, doctoral, and vocational further training programmes in health services management, psychological and community health, and health informatics.

Its educational philosophy and strategy are defined by the theory and practice of experiential learning. Small group and problem-based interactive teaching methodologies are typical of the Faculty’s approach to teaching.

Brief introduction of the Faculty of Medicine

Nearly 4000 students study at Semmelweis University’s largest faculty in Hungarian, English, and German. Graduates receive a Doctor of Medicine diploma (doctor medicinae universae, abbreviated as: dr. med. univ.).

Medicine is a single long-cycle program lasting twelve semesters. In the first two years, students learn the basic theoretical subjects, though clinical aspects are also incorporated from the beginning of their studies. The third year is still mostly theoretical, while the fourth and fifth years focus primarily on clinical subjects. Students spend their sixth year directly by the bedside, on clinical rotation. At the end of the program, students must submit a written thesis and pass a final examination.

The Faculty of Medicine has 19 institutes, 21 clinical departments, 8 departments, and 11 departmental groups

Brief introduction of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences

Pharmacists possess the deepest understanding of molecules within the health care profession. The Faculty’s pharmacy program is the embodiment of the spirit of “universitas”, with education taking place at three faculties of two universities. Starting in 2009, graduates of the pharmacy program in Hungary receive the Doctor of Pharmacy title. Education takes place in two languages: Hungarian and English.

The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences considers it an important objective to ensure that its diploma enables its graduates to practice their profession within the European Union and beyond, and that it turns them into sought after professionals in the traditionally most competitive workplaces in the field, particularly pharmacies. Holders of the diploma are also qualified for jobs in industry, scientific research, drug regulatory authorities, and pharmaceutical care, where they must hold their own primarily among chemists, biologists, chemical engineers, doctors, and economists, as well as a range of other professions. Finally, the Faculty aims to prepare students, as much as possible, for the challenges and tasks of the pharmaceutical field of the future.
