    Wonderful place and people

    Dominika (graduate of English Dentistry at MUW): As an American of Polish heritage with a family tradition of dental practice, it was a clear choice for me to pursue my dental studies at the English Dentistry Division of the Medical University of Warsaw. Passing the US National Board Dental Examination, I have certainly affirmed my choice. I can say with confidence that I gained my fundamental knowledge here. Thanks to the various medical conferences, research projects and student scientific clubs at the Medical University of Warsaw, I have developed a credible list of extracurricular interests and commitments in the field of dentistry. The small class sizes allow students to work closely with professors and doctors, and learn and gain theoretical, clinical and practical experience vital in the dental profession. I also value the importance our teachers place on training us to become well-rounded, ethical, successful, and mindful doctors. Living and studying in Warsaw has been a pleasure, a challenge, but most rewarding.
