Our University

An inspiring place

Situated on a hill that overlooks the city, an imposing building has a distinct impact on the lives of the citizens – The George Emil Palade University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science, and Technology of Targu Mures. The dendrological park that surrounds the University on all sides, protects it from the monotony of the town as an island of greenery, perfectly integrated to her role as a model of her disciples of Asclepius, determined to relieve human suffering and help others.


From the entrance, the overwhelming beauty of the place is perfectly complemented by the architectural harmony of the main building, where the daily bustle of students is the only one that disturbs this place.


The Faculty of Medicine of the George Emil Palade University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science, and Technology of Targu Mures was founded over 75 years ago and is currently a landmark of national and international medical education.


Hidden from the eyes of the passersby, the University laboratories (located in the main building as well as in the annex ones), the teaching and research infrastructure of the faculty together with the Center for Simulation and Practical Skills and the Center for Advanced Medical and Pharmaceutical Research of the University are a surprising shift from the external beauty of the building that has the emblem of time, to the dynamic reality of the twenty-first century technology.


The Integrated Dental Centre is a modern, practical place which impresses you with its beautiful and sober architecture, appropriate for the general appearance of the entire academic complex but also by the futuristic and cutting edge equipment, the dream of every aspiring dental student.


Being considered, for a long time, a heritage of the city, the diversity offers a unique perspective on the place. Behind it, a well-attended botanical garden, that integrates the abundance of the surrounding vegetation, is a place for recreation, but also serves as the base material for students of the Faculty of Pharmacy and its Integrated Pharmaceutical Education Center, a unique advantage that sets it apart from other medical training centers in Romania.


Outside, the herb garden (where the students have the possibility to study both aromatic plants, with their distinct scent, as well as the toxic ones, which remain however a priceless source of active ingredients) complements the landscape that seems a world removed from a story.


The University was resized academically as the result of the institutional merger process between the University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Târgu MureČ™ and Petru Maior University of Targu Mures, another prestigious university institution of Targu Mures. The academic and research structure of The Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Sciences and Letters, and the Faculty of Economics, Juridical and Administrative Sciences rely on components that ensure didactic and research activity development.


In recent years, the University of Medicine and Pharmacy has had the most dynamic development of all the medical schools of Romania in terms of the growth in student numbers, infrastructure, new undergraduate specializations, internationalization, as well as the accreditation of an extension of undergraduate medical training in Hamburg, Germany, in the year 2019. The UMCH’s campus is situated in Hamburg’s Bahrenfeld neighborhood – also known as Science City. Bahrenfeld, which belongs to the Altona district, is one of the most attractive educational centers in Germany. It is easily accessible by car and public transportation, one of the greenest districts of Hamburg and offers a high-quality living environment.


To all this, the vast Sports base is added-one of the most modern sports facilities in Romania, tennis courts and lighted football fields, a gym and the University Sports Club-which makes studentship at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy remain an unforgettable experience.
