"Center of Excellence"
The Hungarian Accreditation Commitee (in short: HAC) began in 2004 with the so-called parallel accreditation investigations. In this framework, various colleges and universities were evaluated in the same areas of education (history, psychology, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and law). These auditions resulted that the Medical School of the Univerity of Pécs received the title Center of Excellence. The MAB, with experts from other countries, gave this title only to the best higher education facilities at the the Hungarian Rectors' Conference on 12 June 2006. The Institute is the owner of this title until 30 June 2011.
