The Growth Of The Top Medical University Of Russia

The history of the Perm State Medical University named after E.A. Wagner, as well as the history of higher education in the Ural as a whole, goes back as far as 1916 when the Medical Faculty of Perm University was established. In the first year alone, 350 students were accepted into the faculty, which was 70% of the total student population.

Since the 1930 reorganization of higher education throughout the United States, independent medical institutes have separated from universities (1931). During the Great Patriotic War, the graduates and staff proved to have a high level of knowledge. As a result of their work on the typhus vaccine in 1942, Professor A.V. Pshenichnov (a graduate of Medical Faculty of Perm University) and Associate Professor B.I. Raikher were awarded the State Prize ( January 1946). Over 300 scientific research projects were conducted by the institute's staff in the course of the war, while they fulfilled their professional duties at the hospitals in Prikamiye.

Throughout history, new generations of scientists have emerged and new scientific schools have been founded based on the principles of interaction between fundamental and applied sciences and the humanization of higher medical education.
