    Moscow Medical Academy

    Advertisements



    Hi there,

    I'm interested to find out more about the quality of education and life as a student at Moscow Medical Academy. I've heard and read a lot of stories about the pros and cons of a russian medical education and also about the racism that some foreign students receive while living in Moscow. I would like to know more from people who have lived as a student in Russia, especially those of you who are currently studying or have graduated from the Moscow Medical Academy.

    The other thing is in the 4-6th year, I'm aware that the studies will be conducted in the Russian language but what about the exams and the thesis and the assignments that we have to complete? I think it would be quite hard as I don't think it's possible to be that well versed with regards to the russian language (reading and writing skills). But I shouldn't be assuming too much, it'll be nice if someone can relate his/her experience with learning medicine in a foreign language. I am aware of the difficulties and am not afraid to put down the extra hours into studying medicine in a foreign language...I'm just quite wary and am interested to know the experience of others. Nevertheless, it'll be great to take up the Russian language, I'm certainly looking forward to that.

    Also, I'm thinking of renting an apartment during my stay in Moscow, as I would prefer having more space for myself. Is it possible to have a room of my own at the MMA campus/dormitary? If not, how are the apartments in Moscow like? Is it safe and secured? Are there any fully furnished apartments?

    Thanks so much for your time and assistance!!

    Cheers~!

    no doubt Moscow medical Academy is the best Medicak School in Russia and one of the best in the world but still
    i ll recommend to study the whole 6 years in English ....go can go for st Petersburg Pavlov state medical University or Kursk State Medical University ...they have 6 years english medium course

    abt appartments: most of the appartment in Big Russian cities like Moscow and St Petersburg are fully Furnished make sure that the appartment is 10mins walking distance from ur univ ...or ll have a lot of probs in the Freezing winters

    Thanks Dr. TinTin. Well, I'd like to take up medicine in St. Petersburg Pavlov State Medical University, but unfortunately it's not an accredited institution in my country nor is it recognized by the Medical Council, so I wouldn't be able to practice medicine in my home country. Plus, I wouldn't be able to apply for a study loan either. That's why I'm opting for MMA or maybe Kursk. But I've heard that they are better equipped at the MMA. Nevertheless, I'm still checking out other institutions. I wish you the best for your studies~! Take care~!

    I went to the Russian Resources(RR) agency in Malaysia. They told me that I can take the course in English for all 6 years. After reading Missa's post, I'm confused. Can someone from MMA please help clarify this matter? RR said that it's a full English course with just the final exam in Russian. Apparently, it is compulsory to take the Russian language course while studying medicine.

    As for Russian State Medical University, RR informed me that it is a 3 years in English, 3 years in Russian course. And yet my friend who asked another agency, was told that the course is conducted in English throughout the 6 years. Who is right?

    These questions I would like to pose to MMA students and graduates:
    What is it like studying and living in Moscow?
    Is MMA really one of the best medical schools in the world?
    Is the degree an M.D? How is it different from MBBS?
    Would you recommend students to go to MMA?

    Hope to see replies soon. Thank you!!

    Hi,

    Can i ask a few addtional questions?

    1. Would there be study tour opportunities from MMA to the Weill Cornell School in Qatar since it would be very expensive to travel and stay in the US Cornell (at least for me) ??

    2. Can we have more thumbs up to those who agree that i should take up a straight 6 yr ENglish then to St. Petersburg Pavlov State Medical University RATHER than 3yrsENG-3yrsRUS course?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can kindly enlighten on this...

    To all Members,

    Can anyone enlighten me :-

    a) Which Medical Universities in Europe, Canada, Australia & U.S.A. recognised MMA?

    b) Which of the abovementioned Countries accept MMA qualification for Post-Graduate Course or Specialist Course?

    I cannot find any answer from other websites.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    To all your questions, 1 simple answer...Kursk State Medical University!
    A recent graduate Arthur Wong is going to Denmark to work & continue studies.

    6yrs English medium, very affordable cost rm17,214/yr, hostel within/nearby campus rm3k/yr, furnished apartments nearby abt USD300/mth 9# or 4 can share).

    Safe & Conducive!
