Kursk State Medical University is a Russian medical university located in Kursk, western Russia, established in 1935. In 1994 it was granted university status.

History

The decision to create a medical institute was taken in 1935, and the first class of students began their studies in September of that year. The construction of the university buildings was not finished until 1940, which is also when the first group of medical doctors graduated.

Between December 1941 and January 1944, the institute was evacuated to Alma-Ata and formed part of the Kazakh Medical Institute. The institute was re-opened in 1944.[1]
