Popular programs

Among all these diverse programs, international applicants show the greatest interest in the bilingual programs in General Medicine and Dentistry. The special thing about them is that classes for first-year and second-year students are conducted in English.

All cutting-edge and hi-tech diagnosis and treatment methods, which healthcare in Yekaterinburg and the Sverdlovsk Region are proud of, have been developed, introduced and improved with the participation of university scientists: minimally invasive, robot-assisted surgical operations, brachytherapy, premature baby care, a wide range of molecular genetic techniques, nanotechnologies in dentistry and pharmacy, and a wide range of other methods.

Preparatory Faculty

USMU has the Preparatory Faculty for applicants who do not speak Russian.

From November to June, attendees study Russian as well as chemistry and biology. Besides, prospective students get acquainted with the Russian culture and traditions and adapt to independent life.

After completing the course, attendees get a certificate of completion of the general preparatory course in medicine and biology.

Russian language courses

The university enrolls students from different countries and ethnic groups. But neither language background nor the prospective students’ previous environment influence the speed of learning Russian. The earlier attendees of the Preparatory Faculty start studying it and the harder they study in the classroom and outside it, the better their Russian will be by the end of study.

The most difficult thing about learning Russian is mastering grammar –correct spelling. As practice shows, students who can read and speak Russian quite well, can have some text writing problems. To neutralize this problem, the university offers additional Russian language courses for degree program students in their first years of study.

As they say in Russia, slow and steady wins the race!

Despite the content and complexity of the educational programs for medical students, the university helps them develop not only as professionals but also as all-round persons.

USMU supports scientific, creative and sports associations. Our students participate in national and international contests, conferences and competitions at the leading Russian scientific centers– Sirius, Innopolis, and others.

Healthy lifestyle promotion is an integral part of medical education, and the university itself is a territory free of bad habits, where sport is considered a second profession of a doctor.

We will be happy to see you among our university students!
