Faculties - Faculty of Medicine

One of the "founding" faculties of the U.Porto, the FMUP is a reference for Portuguese students who intend to follow medicine.

Descendant of the Régia Escola de Cirurgia do Porto (1825) and the Escola Médico-Cirúrgica do Porto (1883), the Faculty of Medicine was created in 1911, being, along with the Faculty of Sciences, one of the "founding" schools of the University of Porto.

Established since 1959 in the complex shared with the Centro Hospitalar Universitário de São João (former Hospital Escolar de S. João), FMUP maintains an intense collaboration with the CHUSJ, both at the level of teaching and research in medicine, and of hospital care to the population.

In 2012, the FMUP complex was enriched with a modern building specially designed for teaching and research activities of the faculty

Currently attended by more than three thousand students, distributed over several study cycles, FMUP is a reference institution for Portuguese students wishing to follow Medicine. The faculty's "business card" highlights, in addition to excellent teaching, its intense scientific activity and the provision of services to the community in the most diverse areas of medical science and practice.
