I would like to thank the academic researchers who put their heart and passion into shaping the future of this university and the quality of medical education in Poland the Prime Minister declared while congratulating the academics of the Medical University of Bialystok for their scientific achievements. He also informed that the university received a grant of PLN 50 million from the State budget to finance the operation of the centre of research on the use of artificial intelligence in healthcare.

When we look at the development of Polish science, we are aware of how important it is to educate students – for this reason we have decided to increase the number of people enrolled at medical faculties said the head of government. Referring to the Constitution for Science, he emphasised that out of the PLN 3 billion earmarked for universities, we have decided to allot PLN 2 billion for regional universities, for the construction of competitive research equipment and for the development of processes for further research and development.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stressed that the government considers medicine to be one of the crucial areas on which it intends to focus, as it relates not only to healthcare, but also has an impact on the development of the entire country.
