YOU WILL GRADUATE BATTLE HARDENED
AND FULLY EQUIPPED TO PRACTICE MEDICINE

We emphasise excellence as a habit in clinical studies and we achieve it through the most diverse range of medical conditions and treatments. For our students, Asclepius, Hippocrates, or Galen are not ancient history but living paradigms of ethics, practical skills and of the drive to always change medicine for the better.

The School of Medicine was founded in 1942 and bears ever since as its official emblem a bust of Hippocrates (commonly referred to as the “Father of Medicine”). It is one of the four Schools of AUTh’s Faculty of Health Sciences and the largest School of AUTh. It accounts more than 30.000 graduates, some of them with a great impact on science and humanity. It has recently been ranked in an international evaluation top among the country’s seven University Medical Schools. Its human resources are of high quality, with faculty members who dedicated years to postgraduate education and professional training abroad and who continuously produce a high-level scientific and clinical workload.

THE ROOTS OF EDUCATION ARE BITTER
BUT THE FRUIT IS SWEET.
