Dear Sirs and Madams, we are pleased to inform you that the 200th anniversary celebration of the uninterrupted activity of the Warsaw Medical Association will be held on the 6th December at 13.00 at the WUM Didactic Centre.

The Warsaw Medical Association begins its celebrations with an exhibition of portraits of Warsaw doctors – members and friends of the Warsaw Medical Association – contemporary representatives of our great academic community. The creator of the portraits on display is the painter, artist Tytus Byczkowski, and the exhibition is co-organised by our Museum.

Established on 6th of December 1820 at the initiative of a group of professors from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Warsaw, the Warsaw Medical Association pursued its chief motto – “To Serve the People and the Homeland” – throughout the next 200 most difficult years of Poland’s history, preserving and developing the most beautiful traditions and best models of medical behaviour.

Józef Piłsudski – the first honorary doctor of the Faculty of Medicine


Ladies and Gentlemen

We would like to invite you to visit our new exhibition, located in the Rector’s Office building, prepared to commemorate a significant event in the history of our university, which took place 100 years ago. The exhibition runs between 01.10.2022 and 12.12.2022

On 2nd May 1921, for the first time in the history of the University, an honorary doctorate was conferred on the Faculty of Medicine – it was awarded to Marshal Józef Piłsudski. On that day, the dean’s and rector’s insignia were conferred on the University authorities.

The decision to honour Józef Piłsudski ‘in recognition of his services to Polish science in general, to Polish medicine and in particular the University’s Faculty of Medicine’ was made at the request of the Faculty Council on 30 April 1920, when military operation was held and many professors were on military service.
