Naval Academy of Medicine

The S. M. Kirov Military Medical Academy is the oldest school of military medicine in Saint Petersburg and the Russian Federation. Senior medical staff are trained for the Armed Forces and conduct research in military medical services.

After Sergey Kirov’s assassination in 1934, the Academy received his name. Leon Orbeli, one of Pavlov’s disciples, led the Academy in 1943 — 1950.

In 1956 S. M. Kirov Military Medical Academy was united with the Naval Medical Academy established on the basis of Obukhovskaya Hospital and the Third Leningrad Medical Institute in 1940. The academy had six faculties, 61 departments, 30 clinics, 16 research laboratories, and two research centers in 2002.

Later in 2011, minister of defense Anatoliy Serdyukov declared his intention to move the academy from the historical center of Saint Petersburg to one of its suburbs. This decision was overturned after Serdyukov had been sacked.
