A Brief History of Poland by The World Factbook

Poland is an ancient nation that was conceived near the middle of the 10th century. Its golden age occurred in the 16th century. During the following century, the strengthening of the gentry and internal disorders weakened the nation. In a series of agreements between 1772 and 1795, Russia, Prussia, and Austria partitioned Poland amongst themselves. Poland regained its independence in 1918 only to be overrun by Germany and the Soviet Union in World War II. It became a Soviet satellite state following the war, but its government was comparatively tolerant and progressive. Labor turmoil in 1980 led to the formation of the independent trade union "Solidarity" that over time became a political force and by 1990 had swept parliamentary elections and the presidency. A "shock therapy" program during the early 1990s enabled the country to transform its economy into one of the most robust in Central Europe, but Poland still faces the lingering challenges of high unemployment, underdeveloped and dilapidated infrastructure, and a poor rural underclass. Solidarity suffered a major defeat in the 2001 parliamentary elections when it failed to elect a single deputy to the lower house of Parliament, and the new leaders of the Solidarity Trade Union subsequently pledged to reduce the Trade Union's political role. Poland joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004. With its transformation to a democratic, market-oriented country largely completed, Poland is an increasingly active member of Euro-Atlantic organizations. Read More.

ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY

The recent years are characterized by a dynamic development of the Medical University of Warsaw (MUW), which is now the largest medical school in Poland. On 29th May 2000, the Senate resolution provided for the formation of a new Faculty, the Faculty of Health Sciences with three Divisions - Nursing, Midwifery and Nutrition. In 2002, the Faculty of Postgraduate Education was established.
The MUW has over five thousand students and a staff of 1352 academic teachers, including 146 professors (61 full professors, 27 associate professors and 58 adjunct professors) and 581 lecturers. The Medical University of Warsaw offers degree courses in nine principal subject areas and in four specialities. Additionally, it provides post-graduate education (specialty training and refresher courses).
For many years the Medical University of Warsaw has collaborated in research with centres all over the world, including Germany, France, Sweden, the UK, the Netherlands and the USA. There are 16 formal agreements on scientific cooperation which involve exchange of research workers, joint research projects and publications. Research at the MUW is funded by grants from the the Polish Committee for Scientific Research (c. 150 projects annually) while other forms of external funding include the European Union research fund and financial support by other bodies. Many research projects are funded from the MUW’s own resources.
The MUW participates in European exchange programmes for students and research workers, such as the SOCRATES, ERASMUS and CEEPUS programmes. The University is also involved in four thematic ERASMUS networks aimed at supporting innovative approaches and improving the quality of academic education through the development of joint educational projects and methods of teaching in medicine, dentistry and pharmacy, including the criteria of teaching quality evaluation.

A SHORT HISTORY

The Faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy, forming part of the Warsaw University, resumed undergraduate education programmes in 1945. The Academy of Dentistry, founded in that year, was incorporated into the Faculty of Medicine, Warsaw University as the Division of Dentistry in 1949. In January 1950, faculties of medicine and pharmacy at all Polish universities were transformed into independent tertiary schools, Academies of Medicine.
The newly established Warsaw Medical Academy had two Faculties, of Medicine (with the Sub-faculty of Dentistry) and of Pharmacy. Professor Franciszek Czubalski (Rector of the Warsaw University in the years 1945-1949) was appointed its first Rector. Warsaw Medical Academy took over some buildings formerly belonging to the Warsaw University and the Infant Jesus Hospital with a complex of teaching hospitals situated in Lindleya St. The building in Filtrowa St. housed the Rector’s Office, the Deans’ Offices and Administration.

Development

Physicians, who were academic teachers, worked at most of Warsaw hospitals. After the World War II, the Karol and Maria Children’s Hospital founded by Zofia Szlenkierówna, which had been destroyed during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, was rebuilt as a new paedriatric hospital in Działdowska St. with Professor Władysław Szenajch as its Managing Director. In 1950 the Chair of Paediatrics 2 was transferred from there to the hospital in Litewska St. In 1975 a new Central Teaching Hospital was opened in Banacha St. In those days it offerred the most specialized level of health care and the most sophisticated technology in Poland. In that same year, 25 years after the foundation of the Medical Academy, the 2nd Faculty of Medicine was established with the city hospital in Kondratowicza St in the Bródno district of Warsaw at its main clinical teaching centre.
Also in 1975 the Transplantation Institute was founded, the brainchild of Professor Tadeusz Orłowski. Among other projects, the Institute was the first to introduce the programme renal transplantation coordinated and supervised by Professor Tadeusz Orłowski and Professor Jan Nielubowicz (Rector of the Medical Academy in the years 1981-1986).
In 1993, the English Division with English as the language of instruction was created for international students at the 2nd Faculty of Medicine and in 2001 – the Physiotherapy Division
In 2000, the Medical Academy of Warsaw – now known in English as the Medical University of Warsaw – celebrated the 50th anniversary of its foundation. The other important events of that year included the ceremony of the 50th anniversary of graduation of the 1950 class and the inauguration of a building at 61 Żwirki and Wigury St., which now is the seat of the Senate, the authorities and the administration of the Medical University of Warsaw.
