Kursk State Medical University is Ranked among the list of the 10 best Russian medical schools. The first university in Russia to commence Medical undergraduate programmes in English, KSMU is currently the leader in Medical Studies in the English medium. The Kursk State Medical University was founded in February 1935 and is sponsored by the Russian Government.

Why KSMU?                                                                                                                                                  KSMU is a diverse and dynamic centre of academic medicine and health care. Our research laboratories, 28 affiliated hospitals, and special programs offer students an innovative approach in preparing for the practice of medicine. Our teachers, who are active in their fields, respected by their colleagues worldwide, and praised by their students, keep KSMU on par with the best in the world. The low cost of living together with the social and cultural richness of Kursk is another feature that attracts many international students to KSMU. The reasonable cost and value of a KSMU education, compared the medical degrees offered in other countries, is often the bottom line for families when it comes to choosing the right medical school.
