Bid Book » Book3 » Medical Services » Hospitals And Teaching Hospitals

There is no practice of teaching hospitals in Russia as it is customary for Western Europe and North America. Nevertheless, the Russian medical education is closely related to the practice since the departments of medical universities are situated at active medical establishments.

In Moscow 293 departments of the universities concerned and specialised research centres are located and operative at 76 medical establishments of the city’s health care system. Virtually all major city clinics are somehow involved in the medical education system. Some of the most famous and largest city hospitals, as well as a number of those accommodating departments (including physiology and sportsmedicine) of Moscow leading universities, are given in the tables below:
