200 years of the Warsaw Medical Association


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.
