PUMS Doctoral School has received funding for the project "Towards unmet clinical and educational needs at PUMS" submitted within the STER Program - Internationalization of doctoral schools of the National Agency for Academic Exchange ☛ NAWA. The awarded project was among 12 selected from 34 submitted by Polish universities and institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences. We emphasize with great satisfaction that we are the only medical university awarded funding among the awarded institutions.

PUMSTER will allow for the development of long-term international cooperation in the field of education, science, clinical trials, and broadly understood cooperation, also with industry.

Thanks to PUMSTER, we can attract doctoral students and promoters from abroad and pay scholarships to doctoral students implementing doctoral projects in international cooperation. We will also be able to apply and implement international research projects more effectively.

As part of this project, we have the opportunity to invite, from the 1st of April, 6 doctoral students from abroad who, after passing the qualification procedure and presenting the research plan, will become full-fledged doctoral students of our internationalized Doctoral School. Therefore, we would like to invite university graduates and students of the last year and potential promoters who, together with PUMS promoters, will guide these students. We will be recruiting other 18 candidates (both Polish and international students) for our internationalized Doctoral School during the summer months. They will also study at our Doctoral School in English and carry out their doctoral dissertations under two Supervisors' mentorship, including one from abroad.
