Pierre et Marie Curie faculty of medicine

Pierre et Marie Curie Department of medicine

The premier medical university complex in Europe

Under the guidance of the Dean, Serge Uzan, the Pierre et Marie Curie faculty of Medicine [www.medecine.upmc.frNouvelle fenêtre], on the strength of its 10,000 students and 723 teachers and medical students on rotation in hospitals, is positioning UPMC as the premier university teaching hospital in Europe.

The result of the grouping of three UPMC medicine faculties in 2005 (Saint-Antoine, Pitié Salpétrière and a part of Broussais Hôtel Dieu), the faculty of medicine is now equipped with the resources to allow it, in a fully synergised framework, to offer the complete range of adult and paediatric disciplines, and to implement a truly innovative policy in education, training and research.

The Pierre et Marie Curie faculty of medicine is the only one which corresponds to the whole of a University Hospital Group (the GHU EST) and a university (UPMC). This unification of hospital and university paved the way, in 2006, for the signing of the first convention between the Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris and a university institution.

A centre of excellence in French medical research, it has 57 research units, including mixed units UPMC - INSERM (French National Institute for Health and Medical Research), UPMC-CNRS (National Centre for Scientific Research, university host teams and PPF and UPR (Internal Research Unit) teams, forming part of the UPMC ‘life and health’ research sector.

The faculty of medicine offers courses for the 3 cycles of medical studies: from PCEM1 (given within the faculty) to the 3rd cycle including DES (Diploma in Specialised Studies in Medicine), DESC (Diploma of Complementary Specialised Studies), DU (University Diploma) and DIU (Inter University Diploma). The courses are given principally at two locations: Pitié-Salpétrière and Saint-Antoine.
The faculty also offers paramedical courses: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics. The Saint-Antoine site also includes a midwifery school.

In the training of its students, the faculty has the support of the hospitals of the GHU-Est, which groups together the hospitals of Pitié-Salpêtrière, Saint-Antoine, Tenon, Trousseau, Charles Foix-Ivry and Rothschild.
Mention should also be made of the teaching hospital agreement governing the faculty’s association with the Quinze-Vingts National Centre of Opthalmology, and affiliation agreements with 3 hospitals (Lagny, Diaconesses Croix Saint-Simon et Saint-Maurice).

Finally, many other hospital units are linked by agreements governing the intake of medical students on rotation in hospitals: Montsouris Mutalist Institute, André Grégoire Multi-Community Hospital (Montreuil), Le Raincy Montfermeil Multi-Community Hospital, Begin Army Teaching Hospital, Val-de-Grâce Army Teaching Hospital, Percy Army Teaching Hospital, Longjumeau Hospital, Hôtel Dieu Hospital, the Franco-British Hospital Institute, Arpajon Hospital and Aulnay-sous-Bois Hospital.
