Education without Borders

VSMU is the first medical university of the Republic of Belarus, which has its own preparatory department abroad. The idea of ​​preparatory departments or international educational centers of the university started up long ago, and came from the necessity of internationalization of medical education. At preparatory department students are trained according to the guidelines and programs of the university by qualified specialists of a foreign center-partner. Training lasts an academic year, with compulsory formative assessment. The members of the university admission committee conduct end-of-course assessment directly at the educational center. The results of assessment are equal to the results of entrance examinations and allow applicants to participate in the competition for admission to the Vitebsk State Medical University.
