The Faculty of Health Sciences is one of the youngest faculties of our University where teaching began in 1990. Since the integration on 1st January 2000, it has been a faculty of the University of Pécs.
The Faculty has 4 regional training centres in the following towns: Kaposvár, Pécs, Szombathely and Zalaegerszeg. In all these towns there is a good working relationship between the Faculty and hospitals or social institutions. The Faculty of Health Sciences is the largest institution of its kind in the country in terms of the number of majors offered, the number of teaching staff and the number of campuses.
The Faculty also plays a pioneering role in developing health and social training programmes, which is shown by the fact that university level degree programmes, such as the post-graduate MSc major in Nursing and in Health Visiting, were the first ones in the country. We also established a Doctoral School of Health Sciences in 2005. We consider the various BSc Programmes, the two MSc majors as well as the Doctoral School important, because besides improving the quality of health care students have the opportunity to obtain PhD degree in the field of health professions.
Graduates of the Faculty of Health Sciences have a level of competence in their own field that is fully compatible with EU standards. They are fully capable to work as competent team members in areas of health care provision and social care systems. In the EU, there are seven automatically acknowledged special fields. Our students may obtain a degree in two of these fields (midwifery, nursing).
The leaders of the Faculty attach great importance to facilitating and encouraging students with outstanding performance to join the teaching staff after graduation. We have connections with many universities abroad, so our students can complete part of their studies in other partner institutions abroad.
We offer English and German language courses focusing on general and special purposes. Our Faculty is also a language examination centre where students can take examinations at elementary, intermediate and advanced levels in medical English and German. An increasing number of our students join the Student Researchers’ Association established in 1993 and achieve outstanding results at regional and national conferences.
Our highly qualified teaching staff can use a high-quality infrastructural background (computer rooms, terminals, internet, studio, language laboratory and modern teaching devices) efficiently to transmit their knowledge in the laboratories and demonstration rooms. Students also benefit from well equipped dormitories with a sauna (Pécs), a kitchen, a gym and a library.
