    How to apply to russian medical school?

    Advertisements



    Hello...everyone. GReat forum.
    Was wondering if anyone knows how to apply to russian medical universities (I am considering St.Petersburg Pavlov Medical University, MMA Sechenov, RSMU and St.Petersburg State University Medical Faculty)
    I am Canadian citizen...If anyone applied to those universities did you go to Russia to apply, or you just send documents by mail.?
    I just dont know how to start admission process

    Please help...I will really appreciate it.

    You can email the schools and they will give you all the information you need for admissions. Normally, schools abroad will allow you to fax or email the necessary documents they need to see.

    Hello, my advice to you to study in Moscow not Petersburg. Moscow is much more pleasant to live. The schools to study are Sechenovs Academy, and Peoples friendship university, and couple more others. You can find them easily online. But the best thing is to call them, better then write e-mails. They are really reluctant ansvering e-mails. My friend, he's from US graduated this year from the latter. Doing USMLE now. The average price per year is $2,5-4 K/year.
    Another option, I think the best for someone who wants study, more than worry about expenses in a big city. To study in a Medical Academy for example in Smolensk. I graduated from there. Small city, much easyer and cheeper to live then in Moscow and St.P. for a $1000 you can easily live a whole year, considering that average salary there is $100 a month. Besides when studying in a small city it's much easyer to study and prepare for MLE, and by the time you graduate have all the steps done.
    Anyways it;s up to you.
    Feel free to aks any q's.

    Thanks Pavel for advice. Been in Moscow and St.Petersburg a while ago now, agree that Moscow is somehow pleasant than St.Petersburg, but more expensive, all schools mentioned in my previous post are top ones, so it all depends on living conditions and expenses.
    Never thought of small city studying (something to think about ) By stories, I get impression that the study is extremly tough, lots of subjects and practical work, some saying that even better "hands-on" experience than US school (like in US they study only 12 areas in surgery, while in russian school there are much more than 12 areas).
    oh, well...still time to think

    Right now living expenses in Moscow and StP are almost the same, but the conditions are way better in Moscow. But if you think about nonstressful live and alot of time to study - small city is the best. Also about so called top schools. If you go to the top school here it won't give you any advantage, and will even harm you. People in tops take bribes alot. Yeah, about hands on experiense you're right. If you really want to do anything practically it's possible. There is no concept of malpractice here.

    Maybe you should consider Nizhniy Novgorod State Medical Academy. The town is 3rd biggest city in Russia. I think it is more peaceful than Moscow and St. Petersburg. The course is conducted in 6 years English. Clinical years, you have classes in English, but better to know Russian so easier to communicate. The cost, I suppose cheaper than Moscow Medical Academy.
