The Faculty of  Medicine has got the longest history in the Medical University in Białystok. It was established at the same time as the Doctor’s Academy in Białystok under the 03rd February 1950 Regulation of the Council of  Ministers. In 1969 the school’s field of activity was extended following the establishment of the Division of Dentistry.

Afterwards in the consecutive years new courses of medical education were introduced regularly. In 1999 the Division of Nursing was set up at the Faculty of Medicine, which subsequently became an independent unit of the University under the name of  the Faculty of  Nursing and Health Care. The 6-year medical training program in English started in 2004. In the Faculty of Medicine the medical courses of training in dental techniques were initialized in the academic year 2009/2010.   

The Faculty is authorized to grant the degree of Doctor - Ph.D in Medical Sciences and the degree of  Doctor (Ph.D) Habilitated in Medicine, Medical Biology and Dentistry.

In the successive years the Faculty saw progressive development of its research and teaching units, teachers and  the emergence of new departments and clinics.

Dentistry is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area. Although primarily associated with teeth among the general public, the field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular and other supporting structures.
Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy.

Medical Education
Medical education is education related to the practice of being a medical practitioner; either the initial training to become a physician (i.e., medical school and internship), or additional training thereafter (e.g., residency, fellowship and continuing medical education).
Medicine is the science and practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness. Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease, typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics, and ionizing radiation, amongst others.
Let us have a dagger between our teeth, a bomb in our hands, and an infinite scorn in our hearts.
Benito Mussolini
Learn'd he was in medic'nal lore,
For by his side a pouch he wore,
Replete with strange hermetic powder
That wounds nine miles point-blank would solder.
Samuel Butler, Hudibras, Part I (1663-64), Canto II, line 223.
Mad is the man who is forever gritting his teeth against that granite block, complete and changeless, of the past.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
