Cooperation with Bogomolets University

The authorities of our university and Ukrainian Bogomolets National Medical University (NMU) discussed further development of joint activities.

The O. O. Bogomolets National Medical University is our university's most important partner in Ukraine. For almost two years, MUW has been supporting NMU in helping to educate and train medical staff and students. During the recent videoconference, the discussion focused on the currently implemented projects:


  • ERASMUS+ studies and internships for students and doctoral students;
  • ERASMUS+ trainings for doctors and academic teachers;
  • Organization of hybrid conferences on teaching quality with the participation of representatives of Ukrainian medical universities;
  • STOP CANCER scholarships for Ukrainian specialists in anatomopathology;
  • Trainings in emergency medicine conducted by doctors of the Department of Emergency Medical Sciences MUW with the support of the Polish Medical Air Rescue.

The rectors of the two universities unanimously stressed the importance of this support not only for the Kiev university, but also for Ukraine's drive to join the European Union.

Future plans

NMU Rector, Yurii Kuchyn, has proposed that our authorities join the EU Twinning project. The project envisages partnership cooperation between public institutions of EU countries with non-EU countries, which involves the transfer of experience related to, among other things, the implementation of EU law. For this purpose, the two universities will sign an agreement.

The topic of deepening scientific and research cooperation as well as establishing direct contacts between the clinics of the two universities was also discussed. A meeting is planned for research teams interested in such cooperation.

There was also discussion of the possibility of Ukrainian students to pursue master's theses at the Faculty of Pharmacy and the continuation of training organized by the Department of Emergency Medical Sciences in battlefield medicine.

Ukrainian academic teachers have been invited to participate in the next Education Quality Culture Day conference on such topics as education quality assurance and accreditation systems, as well as to attend the West-East Conference.
