The Saint Petersburg State Medical University named after I.P. Pavlov (in Russian: Санкт-Петербургский государственный медицинский университет имени академика И. П. Павлова, СПбГМУ or SPbGMU) 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.
SPbGMU is often 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.
