More than just studies
From our students
Joanna, student at the Faculty of Pharmacy
Studying Medical Analytics requires precision, accuracy, and inventiveness. Laboratory technicians' work is essential, unfortunately often underestimated. They are the ones who help to make the correct diagnosis—as much as 70% of medical decisions depend on the results of diagnostic tests.
From our lecturers
Prof. dr hab. farm. Jacek Sapa
Above all, studying is about gaining knowledge and skills in the field of your interest and your future professional life. This is why the choice of a good University is not without significance. Nowadays, we know that people and the academic community shape our intellectual development. The University – such as the Jagiellonian University – means gaining knowledge and a multitude of other opportunities to develop other interests.
