In addition, some part of the pedagogical staff will be represented by the staff of the main institution of higher education.
“A doctor is always an active and intelligent person, striving for science and additional knowledge. All these features we have to take into account when forming the team. We note the positive response to the opening of the branch, and for us it is a sign and a very great credit of trust, a great responsibility. I hope that together we will pass this difficult way, and the region will get a point of higher medical education,” – Rector Nikolay Karyakin commented on the signing of the agreement.
The branch will have 100 budgetary places. Within the framework of the specialty will be opened the direction “Medicine”. Cardiologists, pulmonologists, anesthesiologists and intensive care specialists will be trained as residents. The institution will be able to admit its first students in 2023.
