Rector’s greeting


George Emil Palade University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science, and Technology of Târgu Mureş (UMPhST) is a prestigious Romanian higher education institution, with a dynamic development, functional, efficient, optimal and flexible management mechanisms, as well as strong administrative stability.

Located in the middle of Transylvania with a tradition of 75 years of medical and pharmaceutical education, the University became academically stronger as a result of the merger, in 2018, with the "Petru Maior" University, another prestigious higher education institution in Târgu Mureş.

After completion of the merging procedure, the university has acquired a new configuration, currently carrying out, within its seven faculties, programmes at bachelor and master level, as well as doctoral and postgraduate programs of study in three different languages Romanian, Hungarian and English.

The university has a complete educational and research infrastructure, consisting of teaching and research laboratories, the University library, lecture halls, and many other facilities for students, material resources that provide a modern, dynamic educational process with complex activities.

Today we are a comprehensive university, an institution of high quality and new dimension. Besides, we have the advantage of being the only university of Medicine and Pharmacy in Romania which has in its structure everything that modern medicine means or can mean in the future. Thus, we are a unique university, and this advantage is our source of progress.

Romania has numerous public and private universities, each of them providing scientific and educational values. Among all these, George Emil Palade University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Science, and Technology of Târgu Mureş is different and unique, which is why the motto of institutional development that best represents the university is: E Pluribus Unum – Out of many, one!
