In the library of the Kronstadt Naval Hospital, a regular meeting of the Society of Marine Physicians of Kronstadt was held, to which the cadets of the Military Medical Academy were invited.

Chairman of the Society of Marine Physicians of Kronstadt, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor Yevgeny Nikitin spoke about the role of the Kronstadt Naval Hospital in the revolutionary events. According to Nikitin, thanks to the selfless work of doctors, medical assistants, nurses and orderlies of the Kronstadt Naval Hospital, despite the enormous overload, all patients (both rebels and suppressors of the rebellion) were provided with the necessary medical care.

A tour of the museum and the historical library of the Kronstadt Naval Hospital, which celebrated its 300th anniversary several years ago, was held for the guests of the meeting.

The cadets of the academy warmly thanked the organizers of the event for the invitation and noted how important it is for future military doctors to know the history and take part in such meetings.

The Kronstadt Naval Hospital was considered one of the best military medical institutions in Europe. The hospital not only treated the wounded and sick, but also trained medical personnel for the needs of the Russian fleet. Many new areas of medicine emerged from the hospital’s classrooms and laboratories.
