Quality Policy of the School Medicine, Faculty of the Health Sciences,
Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
 
The quality policy of the School of Medicine is in firm harmony with the quality policy of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) and is aimed towards the achievement of quality goals affecting its operations, and especially the organization and running of the undergraduate Curriculum (study program) of the School of Medicine. It is focused on the continuous improvement of the quality of the Curriculum as well as of the educational, research and administrative work, in such a way so as to adapt to contemporary academic and research conditions.
 
The School of Medicine is committed to enforcing a quality policy that supports the academic appearance and orientation of the Curriculum, and it is clearly promoting its scopes, it is implementing its strategic goals and it is determining the necessary actions and means through which these can be achieved, with the ultimate goal being its continuous improvement.
 
The goals of the Curriculum are:
 
  1. High level and quality of studies based on international criteria.
  2. Delivery of knowledge, with special emphasis both on basic science, as well as on the clinical work, through modern educational practices, such as problem based learning (PBL), in parallel with the nurturing of the critical, creative and investigative thought.
  3. Balance between depth and spread of knowledge.
  4. Familiarization with cutting edge sectors and delivery of laboratory and clinical work in combination with world-class research. 
 
The achievement of the above-mentioned goals is a key target of the School of Medicine and this is made possible through the high quality of its faculty members and the active participation of the students in its various activities.
 
More specifically, on a yearly basis, in collaboration with the Internal Evaluation Committee as well as with the assistance of all the Committees and Administrative Bodies of the School of Medicine, there is a data collection and analysis (qualitative and quantitative), regarding the implementation of the curricula and course programs of the different levels (undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral), the progression of the students, the stuffing-up and development of the faculty memebers and the rest of the academic, scientific and research staff, the research production of the School at a personal and collective level, as well as any other issue relevant to the services and achievement of the goals of the School. The results of the internal evaluation are presented every year during a special meeting session of the General Assembly of the School, where the necessary correctional interventions and improvements are decided.
 
The goals and the policy of quality of the Curiculum are available to the public through the official website of the School of Medicine under the link “Quality Policy”.
