Poznan University of Medical Sciences (Polish: Uniwersytet Medyczny im. Karola Marcinkowskiego w Poznaniu) is a prominent Polish medical university, one of the oldest in Europe, located in the city of Poznań in western Poland. It traces its beginnings to the foundation ofUniwersytet Medyczny im. Karola Marcinkowskiego w Poznaniuin 1919, and was formed as a separate institution in 1950. It gained the status of uniwersytet in 2007.

The history of Uniwersytet Medyczny im. Karola Marcinkowskiego w Poznaniu starts in 1919 when a pharmaceutical department was created at the University of Poznań. A year later (in 1920) the Faculty of Medicine was founded within it (in fact, this faculty existed since 1919 as a part of Poznań Society of Friends of Arts and Sciences). The chair of Dentistry was created in 1929. The first rector of Poznan University was Heliodor Święcicki and first dean of the Faculty of Medicine was Professor Adam Wrzosek.

In the late autumn of 1939, the Uniwersytet Medyczny im. Karola Marcinkowskiego w Poznaniu was closed by German occupation authorities, but many of its professors continued to teach. In 1940 an underground University of Western Poland was formed in Warsaw which comprised the faculties of Medicine, Pharmacy and Dentistry. In 1941, the Polish School of Medicine at the University of Edinburgh was founded, where the first dean was surgeon Antoni Jurasz from the Uniwersytet Medyczny im. Karola Marcinkowskiego w Poznaniu. In the last months of the war, during the battle of Poznań, preparations for reopening of the University were begun. The university officially reopened in April 1945, before the end of the war.
