Founded in 1769, Semmelweis University is the oldest medical school in Hungary. Their faculty became an independent medical school after the Second World War and developed into a university that teaches medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, health sciences, health management, physical education and sport sciences. The university is named after Ignác Semmelweis (1818-1865) the revolutionary obstetrician who became known as the savior of mothers after he discovered the cause of puerperal fever in the 1840s. The university hosts over 11,000 students from 60 different nations; foreign students account for 18 per cent of the total university community.
