Rahman Sheikh Sabih, Bangladesh. Fourth-year student

Before applying to the university, I asked around, looked through testimonials about universities. I decided on RNRMU, and I don't regret it.

I like studying here. I noticed that much depends on the teacher. If they can get you interested, the subject becomes really exciting, and you'll try to study hard. Physiology and physiopathology, microbiology were very interesting. I also have a hobby — I am fond of history.

I have tentative plans to choose virology and bacteriology as my future specialization. Now we have cycle training, and I choose the disciplines I like more.

In my spare time, I meet my fellow students, go to the gym.

I'd like to become a good doctor and work at a high-profile clinic, but, most of all, be of use to people. There are things that are much more important than material wealth. Health and life are priceless, and money comes and goes.

Ait Aissa Jelal-Eddin, Algeria. Fourth-year student

I chose medicine because the medical profession really allows us to help people.

When I was choosing a university, I decided on two universities with medical faculties: RUDN and RNRMU. I was sent to RNRMU. And I've never regretted it.

In my studies, I like the systematic program. The department of biochemistry offered us a list of issues to study. And we strictly adhere to the curriculum. I have no language barrier while studying academic disciplines, quite the contrary. It's easier for me to perceive medical information and talk about science.

I also take part in the university’s extracurricular projects. I've recently joined a rescue team. They teach us to give first aid in accidents. Besides going to university, I work as a male nurse at an outpatient clinic.

As to my specialization, I'll probably choose surgery. Anatomy comes easily to me. My goal for the future is to make a personal contribution to science. Certainly, I must study hard and spare no pains in my work.

Tabasom Ahmadi, Afghanistan. Fifth-year student

When I came to apply to RNRMU, the admission office staff were so nice to me and told me about everything I was interested in at that time, and I decided to stay here.

I like studying medicine very much. The clinical disciplines that we've been mastering since our third year are particularly interesting. But then the pandemic broke out, and, unfortunately, we had to miss some courses. Our teachers' high proficiency comes to help. Even during online classes, they try to convey all necessary information to us.

I study at the international faculty and major in General Medicine. I've realized that I don't want to be a surgeon. I like therapeutic specialties more, but I haven’t decided yet which one to choose. Now I attend classes of the neurology scientific circle. I am interested in this discipline and its issues. I'll probably choose this major in the future.

I've never regretted entering RNRMU. Even in my third year, when I had a hard time mastering the program and coping with an array of information, I never had any doubts about my choice.
