About the University

Short History

Carol Davila, also founder of modern Romanian Health Services, founded the University in 1857, as National School of Medicine and Surgery. In time, it has developed as Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Pharmacy, part of the Bucharest University. Following the reform of education in 1948, the Institute of Medicine and Pharmacy "Carol Davila" was set up, as a state Medical University. After December 1989 the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Carol Davila” become a state university with academic and financial autonomy. Our university is the oldest school of medical education in Romania. Its high prestige trough the historical perspective, is augmented by the experience of its current teaching staff, by the number of students, the area of hospitals and laboratories, as well as the quality of the equipment, and most important the professional quality of the graduated medical students.
