Institute of Medicine

The Institute of Medicine trains specialists in the areas of General Medicine, Pediatrics and Pharmacy. Over the period of its existence, it has trained over ten thousand doctors and pharmacists, contributing to the health care system in Karelia, Murmansk region and other regions nearby.

Study programs include general academic and professional courses. A huge emphasis is laid on practical training, which can be done in local hospitals, pharmacies or pharmaceutical companies and other medical institutions. Another important aspect of training is students’ research activity, which enables them to improve their knowledge and become better specialists in their field.
