Thanks to this, the University has become the successor of a long history, rich experience, age-old traditions of two medical institutes of St. Petersburg at once.

The founder of the University is the Ministry of Health of Russia, which means that all services provided here are properly controlled at the state level.

The majority of the teaching staff are practical physicians, including 7 academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 37 honored doctors of Russia, 751 candidates of medical sciences and 380 doctors of medical sciences.

  • Research Institute of Medical Mycology (a modern scientific, educational and clinical complex, the only one in its profile in Russia)
  • Research Institute of Rheumatology

The University has implemented 45 international scientific and technological projects in cooperation with the leading scientific and educational healthcare institutions of Eastern and Western Europe, China, Japan and the USA.
