Studying MBBS in Russia has always been a magnificent experience even since the Soviet era. The ‘then’ students are now the leading names in the medical sector not just in India but also all over the world.
But did the tales end with their success. Absolutely not, the achievements of ‘then’ students worked towards writing a new tale of achievement. Certainly, society, its needs and expectations are not the same as 50 years ago.
So what would be the reasons why the young generation of aspiring doctors must study MBBS in Russia in the 3rd decade of the 21st century?
Here are 5 reasons why more than 10,000 students choose to study MBBS in Russia.

This, thus, forms a major reason for its popularity among the medical student’s community of India.

- Use of Technology in Education
Another reason for the popularity of MBBS abroad is the use of the latest educational technology in the training and practices. The top medical universities of Russia use the advanced technological resources in their classrooms, laboratories, hospitals and libraries not aid to the administral procedures as well to train required set of skills to their fullest.
- Comfortable Student Life
Since there are plenty of students of Indian origin who undergo medical training in Russia, most of the medical universities of Russia cater to the personal preferences and requirements of the students.Therefore these universities provide many facilities for Indian students like separate student hostels, Indian food canteens, sports and cultural clubs as per their interest and many more. All these facilities ensure that the students get to live a comfortable life in the university for their course of study.
- Global Scope
Russia can be said as the epicenter of research practices. The medical universities of Russia focus on the research based education and thereby intrinsically motivating the student towards growth and success. Due to this reason itself, the students graduating from the medical universities of Russia have proven to be a huge asset and therefore have a huge scope of career growth.
