Characterised as an advanced research university by the Ministry of Education, it has access to the facilities of over 20 clinical hospitals all over Bucharest and it implements a wide range of national and international research projects in partnership with Scientific Research Centers and other medical universities.


Once the University door is opened, students enter a temple of study and human dedication. They are stepping on the footsteps of famous forerunners such as George Emil Palade, holder of the Nobel Prize. 

According to US News, UMFCD ranks the first place in the Top of Romanian Universities for Clinical Medicine and it is within the range 100-150 in the global Shanghai Ranking (2021).
