The university has a special building for medical simulations and standardised patient exercises, which makes PUMS a pioneer in this field among medical universities in Poland. The training is enriched by state-of-the-art technology and experienced professionals, which makes the learning process not only educational, but also challenging and entertaining. For the practical consolidation of clinical skills, students have access to specially equipped practice rooms that simulate a real-life practice environment.
