Ignaz Semmelweis

Semmelweis University, School of PhD Studies

The aim of the course is to teach all students of Semmelweis University to learn about the life, work and present impact of the man who gave the name of our university.

On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Semmelweis in 2018, on behalf of the Semmelweis Commemoration Committee, I announce the course for the first time in order to strengthen the knowledge, understanding and commitment of our students.

The lecturers of the course are the most outstanding Hungarian Semmelweis experts who, besides the history of his discovery, analyze the reasons behind the denial of scientific results, the professional, historical and social background, and that true scientific values ultimately occupy their worthy place despite all despairs.

The study and understanding of Semmelweis' life history, teachings and their fate is a vital human and professional duty for all medical practitioners.
