Moscow Institute of Medico-Social Rehabilitation


In 1991, the idea was born to create an institute of medical and social rehabilitation to train rehabilitators, specialists with a synthesis system of knowledge in the fields of medicine, psychology, sociology, cybernetics, economics, ecology, demographics, the rehabilitation industry.

The programs of students’ education at the institute were written, methodology and computer technology of selection of applicants on the principle of building a psychological hologram of the individual were developed and created. This is necessary, as a rehabilitator is a lifestyle of a high professional. I am eternally grateful to the fate of the meeting with extraordinary people – Novoseltseva G.D., Shevchenko N.S., Stepanova L.A., SeminY V.A., Korshunov V.M., Stepayan K.V., Matveyev G.P., Dollejal I. They were pioneers in the creation of this institute.

Lyudmila Stepanova, Galina Novoseltseva, Alexander Kiselyov, Lyudmila Baranovskaya, Natalia Dollejal, thank you, my dear, for the invaluable work of the first most difficult steps in preparing the opening of the institute.

The task of choosing a rector was very difficult. I remember how Galina Novoseltseva and Lyudmila Stepanova introduced me to a young and energetic man Vyacheslav Gaptov.

Vyacheslav Borisovich became the rector of the first medical and social rehabilitation training institute in Russia. Under his leadership, the Institute has passed state accreditation twice.

Academician V. N. Yarygin – rector of the Russian State Medical University has made a lot of efforts in the formation of the young institute.

In the 1990s, more than ever, it was about retaining the faculty of the higher school. Since 1992, the RGMU has become the legal founder of the institute.

Athanasius Dchoyeadze made a great contribution to the establishment of the institute, who set the institution his reliable shoulder, his knowledge and advice.

I am grateful to L.P. Chrapylish for their support on behalf of the Ministry of Social Protection. A. I. Osadchikh, S. L. Leonov supported the development of the institute, as the heads of the Coordinating Committee for Disabled Persons under the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation. That was in 1992.

The institute is now in its fourteenth year. In 2006, there will be the 9th graduation of students. Now more than seven hundred specialists have been trained and about eight hundred are studying now.

In 1996, on the initiative of people from different regions of Russia, the all-Russian movement “For a Healthy Russia” was organized. The first two conferences on the organization of the movement were held with the help of the institute’s staff. One of the active organizers of the movement was V.M. Korshunov.

The Institute has held several scientific and practical conferences on the development of rehabilitation in the country. I can list the endlessly vivid names of scientists and public figures working in the institute and in the movement -For a healthy Russia.” It lives.

I hope to work with different people to preserve the health, capacity and longevity of everyone.

I wish each person to learn to stay healthy – both his own, and their children and loved ones.

Moscow City

Moscow is the capital of Russia, the largest city in the country and Europe, and one of the largest cities in the world. Moscow refers to global cities having a great influence on the world because of its high economic level and population. It is the main transport hub of Russia, its political, economic, cultural, and scientific center.


Moscow features

Moscow is located in the center of the European part of Russia, between the rivers Oka and Volga. The climate is moderate continental: heavy frosts and extreme heat are rare. The average temperature in January – minus 7.2 degrees Celsius, in July – plus 20.4 degrees Celsius.

The city has the status of a separate federal subject of the Russian Federation. It is the smallest federal subject by land area.

The name of the city as well as the names of many other cities around the world, is bound with the name of the river it is standing on (the Moskva River). The river was called this way long before the settlement appeared. It is unknown who named it and what this name means. There are two main versions: Finnio-Ugric and Slavic.

According to the first one, the word “Moskva” is derived from the Finno-Ugric language group which means “river-bear”. The Slavic theory points to the stem “mosk” denoting “marshy” or “moisture, liquid, marshland, dampness”.

The city is surrounded by 6 airports, 9 railway stations, and 3 river ports. Moscow has developed a fabulous metro (subway) system. The first stations were built in 1935.

Moscow is the largest Russian financial center. About half of Russian banks are located in Moscow. Most of the largest companies are registered and have head offices in Moscow, although their manufactures might be located thousands of km from the city.

The city is the most important center of retail sales in Russia. Moscow represents about 30% of all commodities sold in Russia.

Moscow is also a large scientific center. There are a lot of scientific research institutes carrying out research in many branches, such as nuclear power, microelectronics, space exploration and other promising directions.
