    General Presentation

    The Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy from the University of Oradea was established in 1991, after a long and profound analysis realized by a commission of famous specialists, commission composed from: Acad. Ph.D. univ. prof. Stefan Milcu, Acad. Ph.D. univ. prof. Nicolae Cajal, Acad. Ph.D. univ. prof. Gheorghe Niculescu, Acad. Ph.D. univ. prof. Pius Brânzeu and Acad. Ph.D. univ. prof. Mircea Ifrim as founder and initiator of this university project.

    The Medicine and Pharmacy Faculty functions as an institution with its own headquarters situated downtown in an impressive building in no. 10, 1 December Square. This building offers adequate spaces for study, providing 5 lecture halls, 18 laboratories, an own library with reference departments, 580 places for preclinical practice and all the facilities offered by modern endowment and furnishings. In this building, the Medicine specialization performs its activity.

    The Stomatology Specialization has its headquarters in a completely renewed and modern building in no. 2 Ion Creanga Square, where there are optimal conditions for students' study and practice, here existing specialized equipment: complete dental units, dental radiology laboratories, a sterilization station, demonstration rooms, halls for Periodontics, Ortodentistry, halls for Dental Techniques, a specialized library, a special place arranged for Implantology as well as a lecture hall with 90 seats endowed with ultra-modern audio-video equipment.

    Beginning with the academic year 2002 - 2003 a new department for General Medicine and Stomatology specialization will be organized in French as the teaching language.

    The Pharmacy Specialization was founded in the 1992 - 1993 academic year, having now its own headquarters on no. 2 Castanilor Street. The departments of Pharmacy, Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Biochemistry, Pharmacognosy, Pharmaceutical Botany, Toxicology, Physical Chemistry of the Environment, all of them have the necessary endowments within the existing eight modern laboratories. Nowadays the aim is the setting up of other laboratories and the establishing of a place for micro-production.

    The Physiokinetotherapy was established in 1993, having as model the similar colleges from U.S.A, preparing, during a 5 years study period, specialist physiokinetotherapists. The reason for such a Specialization resides in the large number of thermal water treatment and recovery units existing in the Bihor county, units situated in Oradea and in the spas: Baile Felix, 1 Mai and Stâna de Vale, where there is an exceptional material basis and specialized medical staff as well. The analytical program of this Specialization is in total accordance with the international requirements, assuring a professional training with international recognition.
