The First Pavlov State Medical University of St. Peterburg (Russian: Первый Санкт-Петербургский государственный медицинский университет имени академика И. П. Павлова, PSPbGMU) was established in 1897 in St. Petersburg, Russia, as the first Russian medical college for women. After its 110 years of history, it has become one of the leading medical colleges in Russia and the world.

PSPbGMU is called the First Medical Institute in St. Petersburg because of its renaming in 1936, relative to Saint Petersburg State Medical Academy named after I.I. Mechnikov, which is called the Second Medical Institute.
