Pages of history
There are many medical universities in Russia. And if the applicant has firmly decided to become a doctor, then it is very difficult for him to make the final choice: which medical university to enter? Each has its own history, its own attractive sides.
Since July, 2014, with the opening of the Medical Institute at Syktyvkar State University, a new continuation of the history of medical education in the Komi Republic has begun. Almost entirely and completely, both academic staff and the employees of the Komi branch of the Kirov State Medical Academy transferred to the newly created institute. They brought with them the accumulated 20 years’ experience of working with the students of the Komi branch, their good name, their careful attitude to students, traditions, memories, integrity and selflessness.
In 2018, a Simulation center was created, which is extremely essential for mastering the practical skills of to-be doctors, creating a system of continuous medical education.
