Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University is one of the oldest medical higher school in Russia that is well known throughout the world. In 2016, the University celebrated its 110th anniversary.

We were the first organization in Russia that provided women with the opportunity to get higher medical education. We were the first in the world to establish a Faculty of Pediatrics that served as a model for creating such departments at other universities around the world. The School of Biomedicine, opened at our University in 1963, was also one of the first in the world.

Active participation in medical activities and the development of health care, constant support for scientific research and the introduction of innovations allow us to maintain a leading position in Russian medical education.

Today the University is a complex of educational, scientific and medical divisions and centers, offering educational programs of all levels in clinical medicine, biomedicine, psychology, social work and pharmacy.

The University is actively involved in the development of a system of continuing professional education and the accreditation of specialists to medical activities.

We also pay great attention to pre-university training and the search for talented applicants. For schoolchildren, we offer a variety of activities, including a summer school in medicine, a weekly lecture hall, master classes and preparatory courses in Russian and English.

Since 1959, we have been accepting international students. Since 2013, we have been offering university programs in English, as well as double degree programs with European universities.

The University organizes its academic affairs in 115 academic chairs, which are divided into eight faculties. More than 2000 teachers offer lectures, seminars and practical laboratory classes in the natural, humanitarian and medical sciences in more than 250 courses.

We are actively engaged in research and implementation of our developments in clinical practice. In 2010, we - the only among medical educational centers - received the status of a National Research University.

The University’s clinical centers offer modern treatment for children and adults of all ages. We also conduct active preclinical and clinical studies (including on a contract basis) of new drugs and medical equipment.
