Dear students! If you are interested in our University and you are planning to have practice/training in our clinics, please, first determine whether your university is our partner. You can see the list of universities here

  • If you have found your University on the list of Partners, please feel free to contact the International Department of your university with a request to help you to organize your practice in our University. Please, attach to your inquiry your CV, copy of your passport, motivation letter with list of desired Departments. Please, also indicate the language of practice and the desired period of your stay in Russia.

If the department you have chosen agrees to take you as an practitioner, then we start preparing for your visit to the University.

Please, note that you will have FREE practice, transfer from/to airport, free accommodation in the hostel (double room), free lunch in the students‘ café.


  • If you have not found your university among our partner universities, we suggest you either initiate the signing of such an agreement between our universities or complete the internship for a fee.

To sign the agreement, we suggest  you contact the international department of your university and give them our Draft of Agreement. If your University signs it, you can come to us as an exchange student. We guarantee you free internship/practice at the department of your choice, accommodation in a student hostel (double room), transfer from the airport, lunch in the student canteen from Monday to Friday.

If, for reasons beyond our control, we have not been able to sign the Agreement or your University is not interested in signing it, we offer you a practice for a fee. The price will depend on the department you choose and indicated period of training.

For more information please send the request on email address:
