The Academic Center for Medical Sciences at VPU is launching – a building for the 21st century

On the upcoming Sunday, during the solemn inauguration of the 2023/2024 academic year at Vincent Pol University, the modern Center for Medical Sciences will be officially opened.

The facility will primarily serve educational purposes. It will be the main learning space for students of physiotherapy and cosmetology. “In the new building, we have planned exercise and lecture rooms, laboratories for kinesiotherapy, physiotherapy, biomechanics, informatics, as well as extensive anatomy and medical laboratories,

says Vincent Pol University’s President and Chancellor, Associate Professor Henryk Stefanek, the founder of the university.

These state-of-the-art facilities will benefit not only our students but also improve the working conditions for our instructors, creating better environments for teaching. This is crucial for the scientific development of our staff. We aim to educate healthcare professionals at the highest level here,

adds the university’s rector, Ph.D. Mariusz Korczyński, Professor at VPU.

The Academic Center for Medical Sciences stands adjacent to the university’s existing building at 2 Choiny Street. Both buildings are connected, forming a unified complex. The new structure has four above-ground floors, one more than the previous building

The building offers over 4,200 square meters of space and is equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment, with all the necessary facilities for education, as assured by the university authorities.

We are a university that continuously evolves, reaching for modern educational solutions, exemplified by the opening of our Center. We aim to thoroughly prepare our graduates for their professional careers,

explains the rector.

In these offices, not only practical classes for students will be held but also commercial cosmetic procedures. Our students, under the guidance of qualified specialists, will receive external clients and offer various cosmetology treatments here,

adds the Chancellor.

The first floor houses lecture rooms, a rehabilitation room, and a library

We are very proud of the new library and reading room spaces. They are three times larger than the previous area, providing greater comfort for students,

assures the Chancellor.

The building also features two amphitheater-style lecture halls with large video screens. They are located on the second and third floors and will be used for hosting national and international scientific conferences and various events.

What’s more, the area around the complex has been transformed. New parking spaces have been created on the campus, new greenery has been planted, and there are plans to construct a full-size multi-purpose sports field.

We haven’t forgotten about the ecological aspect. The new center is heated using heat pumps, we’ve installed photovoltaics, automatic ventilation, and the rooms and corridors are air-conditioned. This is a building fit for the 21st century,

concludes Associate Professor Henryk Stefanek.

The grand opening of the Academic Center for Medical Sciences is scheduled for October 22nd at 11:30 a.m. Following the ceremony, at 12:00 p.m., the inauguration of the 2023/2024 academic year will take place in the new AWP auditorium (B-213).
