The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Patras was established in 1977 and admitted its first students in October of the same year.

The pre-clinical activities are housed in a new 20.000 m2 building while the clinical units occupy a 750 bed University Hospital next to the pre-clinical building. A new building is under construction where the research laboratories of the Clinical Departments will be housed. The medical complex includes also a building where the teaching amphitheaters and the medical library are located.

The Education objectives of the undergraduate Medical Curriculum are twofold: First, to educate the future Physicians in the biological and medical sciences underlying the practice of medicine and to help them develop the medical skills necessary for the efficient and effective treatment of patients. But an equally important objective is to install to the students the values and the ethical principles which are necessary for the practice of medical profession.
