"The potential of the caterpillar is not achieved by,
by giving it lessons in flight, but by allowing it to develop into butterfly."

Mission Statement

We see that our immediate and wider environment will not get better on its own, therefore

we are doing the best we can, and we believe that

we will get the results that will improve our situation and confirm that we are on the right track.

Within the Faculty of General Medicine of the PTE, we contribute our knowledge and activities to the development and strengthening of the educational service, teaching skills, patient care culture and the overall organisational culture, thus promoting efficient and effective collaboration between departments.

We believe that these can measurably improve the long-term competitiveness of the faculty and contribute to improved employee well-being at work.


To develop and strengthen the faculty’s teaching service, teaching skills, patient care culture and overall organisational culture. It is hoped that the long-term success of these can measurably improve the faculty’s competitiveness, contribute to better workplace well-being and greater staff engagement.

The motivation for its establishment:

  • the increased need to improve communication with students
  • the need for theoretical and clinical teachers to learn, master and practice new teaching methods
  • the need to develop communication and conflict management skills among clinicians and health professionals and nurses involved in patient care in interaction with patients, relatives, and colleagues within the health care team
  • the need to develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities of staff in faculty offices providing services to work more effectively
  • assistance in conflict resolution
  •  to create and maintain a productive and enjoyable working environment and workplace atmosphere, and to raise awareness of the individual and collective conditions for this
  • developing leadership skills (teaching modern leadership and management methods)
  • assisting Faculty staff with life management issues (stress and conflict management, effective time management, finding the right work-life balance, etc.)


  • organising courses, training courses for staff and, in some cases, students of the faculty
  • the scientific processing and publication of the faculty’s educational development efforts and the effectiveness of its own teaching work
