Educational Fields of Study (Tracks)

The Faculty turns out doctors with a basic university education majoring in:

  • General Medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Dentistry
Students are trained according to curricula drawn up in strict accordance with Russian and Kyrgyz State Educational Standards, requiring an outcome-based approach to learning. All types of work experience internships required by the Russian State Standards are implemented at the Faculty. Their programs are based on the checklists of applied skills approved by the Ministries of Health of the Russian Federation and the Kyrgyz Republic.

Graduates obtain two medical diplomas: a Russian one and a Kyrgyz one. After graduation most of them continue their postgraduate studies in residency training, and some of them at the graduate school under the Russian Educational Programs.

The Faculty implements 39 Training Programs for Interns.

2022 saw the 23rd graduation of General Practitioners, the 14th graduation of Pediatricians and Dental Practitioners and the 21st graduation of Resident Medical Practitioners who obtained the appropriate certifications (qualifications) and certificates confirming their rights to work in the chosen area of medicine. In total, over the entire period of Faculty activity 2434 General Practitioners, 941 Pediatricians and 1816 Dental Practitioners have been trained. Most of them work in Kyrgyzstan. However a number of graduates were able to enter and complete successfully their studies in residency or postgraduate studies at leading medical institutes in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk and other cities of Russia. Some of them practice in medicine now in the USA, Germany, Israel, India, Pakistan, and China.
