4 Competency based curriculum Poznan University of Medical Sciences began the careful planning of an exciting new medical curriculum, a competency based curriculum. In this curriculum, students are given specific subject matter and clinical objectives and outcomes by the faculty. Consequently, expectations and evaluations for students both in the basic sciences and in the clinics are made very clear. In addition, students will be instructed in communication skills, professionalism, interpretation and use of the scientific literature, diagnostic and treatment skills, rapport building with patients, sensitivity to moral, ethical, cultural, and social issues and life-long learning skills. Students will also receive training in problem based learning through extensive use of clinical vignettes in their basic sciences. The implementation of this curriculum, to be put into place in the fall of 2009, will make our Medical School a unique institution for students looking for a strong academic program where academic and clinical expectations are clearly defined. Such a curriculum will greatly increase the value of the degree at Poznan University of Medical Sciences and facilitate good residency placement. Accreditation The University is widely recognized around the world. English language programs are accredited, among other institutions, by the Polish Ministry of Health (Department of Science and Higher Education), the US Department of Education, Educational Commission on Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), National Board of Medical Examiners, loan institutions in USA, Canada and Scandinavia. Last year our English language programs were granted accreditation by the Medical Board of California (July 2008). Graduates around the world Many University staff members serve on the boards of professional and scientific associations and are invited to act as advisers by the WHO and IAEA. MD and PhD degrees awarded at the University enjoy wide international recognition. At present more than 1200 graduates of the University practice or research abroad.
