I care for medicine that's why I entered Ryazan State Medical University. The history of our university goes back to 1950. It was formed on the base of the Third Moscow Medical Institute and was named after academician I.P. Pavlov. At present it is one of the top higher medical schools. It is also known in other countries – a lot of foreign students study here, too. There are medical as well as humanitarian faculties at our University. The medical are the faculties of therapy, pharmacy, dentistry and preventive medicine. The faculties of philology, ecology, law and management are humanitarian ones.
