4 years of living AUSoM | 80 years of experience in Medical Studies

Life-changing studies. A welcoming, vibrant city. And in between, an academic family united to support and motivate. This is our AUSoM School!

Aristotle University School Of Medicine (AUSoM) welcomes students from all over the world to study Medicine and learn from each other’s cultural backgrounds. Living AUSoM is more than a promise for an amazing academic journey. It is a well-thought merging of two components: the actual educational experience and life beyond campus. “High-level studies, amazing people, a beautiful city. I believe I will never forget the experience I am having at AUSOM.”, said Andreas from Cyprus

When it comes to life outside campus, we always pursue to connect our students with their peers and the city of Thessaloniki. “I thought that moving to another continent to study, a hundred miles away from home, would be a challenge. The AUSOM community, teachers, and colleagues made my studies a breeze!”, said Mikail from the Netherlands. AUSoM students come from 36 countries: Albania, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Lebanon, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Uganda, UK, USA, and Vietnam. 

AUSoM organizes induction events, such as walking tours and team-building activities, to encourage students to bond over fun activities. And they don’t stop there! Starting this October with new freshers, they are putting into motion all the ideas they had to hold back due to the pandemic. Excursions, tours, and bonding activities are on the way! “During the fresher’s Walking Tour, we had a great time walking around the city, learning about its history and people, and of course, attending that amazing restaurant!”, said Sunday from the USA.

AUSoM curriculum derives from the students, for the students, and they perceive it the same way. Many actively take initiatives to build a true community, the AUSoM community. AUSoM ultimately strives to become a paradigm within Aristotle University, with Greek and international students participating in activities together and creating memories to remember for the rest of their lives. 

"Three years of this exciting academic journey, and we keep moving forward with the same enthusiasm. Our fully integrated curriculum provides our students with all the specialized practical and theoretical knowledge necessary to become the doctors we wish them to be. We are proud to have checked all the boxes from day one and that our students enjoy education in Medicine of the highest standards. That was not an easy feat to achieve, yet, with a heritage of over 70 years, we were able to anticipate troubles and create opportunities in the demanding international environment", Professor of Neurosurgery Nikolaos Foroglou, Coordinator of the Programme.
