Department of General Medicine

Department of General Medicine is the oldest department at SibMed with long history and many scientific traditions. It is the largest department in SibMed in terms of number of graduates per year. The teaching staff consists of more than 400 employees. These are leading medical practitioners that have obtained ‘Candidate of Science’ and Doctoral degrees. Many of them combine teaching duties with practical work at University Hospital and other medical institutions in Tomsk Region. Moreover, SibMed professors are also happened to be academicians in the Russian Academy of Sciences and other research institutes.

Student training is not limited to theoretical lectures. Few of the medical universities in Russia today have such a developed clinical infrastructure as the one at SibMed. Students can practice their knowledge in the University Hospital. Several times a week the University Hospital provide emergency care services for Tomsk Region. So, students get trained in ambulance standards and learn interesting cases. Furthermore, students have access to modern medical equipment and wet mounts and can hone their skills on modern mannequins and phantoms at the University Simulation Center.

In 2009 SibMed opened its own Dental Clinic (the largest in the city). The Department of General Medicine is especially proud of the Dental Clinic because it is the center where practice and theory intertwine. All the divisions that deal with dental issues are in the clinic. Thus, teaching activities are closely linked with practice and patient care. The Clinic is equipped with the most modern high-tech equipment, the best phantom classes in the region. Lectures and master classes are organized annually by leading domestic and foreign specialists in the field of dentistry.
