Medical education is a tradition of the Cluj-Napoca city. "Iuliu Haţieganu" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, whose history dates back to the 1500s, is today one of the most famous and popular medical universities, not only in Romania, but throughout the world.

Each year the gates of "Iuliu Haţieganu" open to receive students from all over the world, francophone and anglophone, that are coming, excited to study in one of the three major areas of study: medicine, dentistry and pharmacy. Currently in university are studying more than 8,000 students from Romania and students from more than 60 other countries.

After graduation, most students return to their homelands or they are settling in different parts of the world to pursue their studies with an internship, master or doctorate. Most of them, besides acquiring knowledge learned during the years spent in the university, established friendships - from simple foreigners, leading to the bonds of friendship between colleagues, or between them and the UMF team.

In order to maintain a close connection, for our graduates to benefit from a world class experience, and most importantly, to keep them informed and in contact with the Cluj-Napoca city and others from UMF, wherever would they be and whatever they do, we created the Alumni Association "Iuliu Haţieganu" UMF.

We want to stimulate the interest in university activities, encouraging intellectually and emotionally the bonds that formed between the university and its members. Finally, we intend to stand by our colleagues and help support their first steps that they make on the hard and difficult road towards achieving a successful professional career.
