Today, in Simferopol, the grand opening of a new training course (cycle) of medical service took place at the Military Training Center at the Crimean Federal University named after V.I. Vernadsky.

The event was attended by the Head of the Republic of Crimea Sergei Aksyonov, Deputy Head of the Main Military Medical Directorate of the Russian Ministry of Defense Major General of the Medical Service Oleg Kalachev and Rector of the Crimean Federal University Andrey Falaleev.

Until now, the Military Training Center trained reserve officers only in the direction of “ground artillery”. Students of all faculties represented at the Crimean Federal University, except for medical students, could undergo military training in this area.

The opening of the new training course will provide future physicians with the opportunity to receive the first officer’s military rank, as well as further military service in the units of the medical service of the RF Armed Forces.

At present, the course of medical service, opened in Crimea, is the only one in the country that trains military doctors on the basis of higher educational institutions in the system of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.
