Medical higher education and the research activity in the sanitary system has some particular characteristics different from those of other areas of higher education, being oriented, in particular, towards medical work done at the bedside, in order to assimilate and deepen theoretical concepts. The medical profession considered rather a liberal profession than one part of centralized system of the medical field, involves training which requires a large study time so that a doctor gets to accumulate the necessary amount of theoretical and practical knowledge and to be recognized as specialist in a period of at least 10 years after graduation. After 1989, the Romanian higher education has been subjected to periodic transformations influenced directly by political orientation of the parties that have won the right to decide in governmental matters changes course aimed at reforming the old system at the edge of the European democratic thought.
