About Russia

Russia was a popular destination for international students right from the Soviet Era to pursue MBBS. According to the “Directory of World Medical Schools” of the World Health Organization (WHO), Russia has almost 30 positions among the top 100 medical universities. Pass-outs from Russian Medical Colleges are currently working around the world in leading hospitals.
