University of Tetova follows the publication of “information” that casts doubt on the scientific research of additional professors at the Faculty of Medical Sciences. Although it is not the duty of our institution to comment on the “discoveries” of “journals” with anonymous authors, we inform the public that the educational activity, scientific research of academic units at the University of Tetova, is conducted in accordance and full respect of scientific criteria. Academic advancements, defense and publication of scientific papers are subject to filtering mechanisms that verify or disqualify a certain research contribution.
That our University has succeeded in the field of scientific research, this is evidenced by citations in journals with impact factor, high position in the rankings of prestigious international agencies and the organization of dozens of conferences and scientific congresses, which are attended by hundreds of well-known scientists.
Regarding the dismissal of the former Dean of the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Prof. Dr. Kastriot Haxhirexha, we inform the public opinion that the Rector of the University has brought this decision as a result of mismanagement, inefficiency at work, failure to react in time to irregularities and work ethic violations, failure to take legal-statutory responsibilities and non-coordination with the Teaching – Scientific Council of this academic unit
Therefore, beyond the malicious attempts to tarnish this institution by anonymous publishers, unaddressed journals, people with dubious agendas, we are committed to moving forward on the path of institutional development and educational-scientific advancement.
There are thousands of students who for 26 years together with their professors, worked tirelessly for this University to achieve the educational and cultural goals of the Albanian nation in our country.
