About the First Tashkent State Medical Institute

The First Tashkent State Medical Institute begins its history from 1918 when a medical faculty was organized at Turkestan People's University.

For a comparatively short period of time it has developed into a full-blooded University faculty both powerful in the volume of work and qualification of pedagogical personnel and in the equipment. According to the demands of that time, in 1931 the faculty was transformed into independent Central Asian Medical Institute and later in 1935 - into Tashkent State Medical Institute. Numerous medical institutes have been organized under Tashkent State Medical Institute. In 1990 it was recognized into two educational establishments: the First and Second Medical Institute.

When Uzbekistan has become independent a lot of attention has been paid to the development of Medical Institute. For a short historical period the institute has developed into one of the largest medical centers in Central Asia, which trains medical personnel, many of them have become great specialists, the pride of medical science. The Institute has played an exceptionally important role in the making and development of health protection not only in Uzbekistan but in all states of Central - Asian Region, Scientific pedagogical personnel trained by the Institute has become the reserve for the opening Medical Institutes in Kirghisia, Tajikistan, Turkmenia, partly in Kazakhstan. In the Republic of Uzbekistan reforms are held in spheres of Public Health and education. That's why at present the Institute is in the important stage of the development.

Reforms are the accomplishments of independence; they set the main task for institute: to train highly qualified physicians, deep knowledge having and scientific - pedagogical personnel, to have abilities for accomplishment of their own way of renovation and progress in the independent Republic.

The organizing structure of the Institute is typical for all higher education institutions. The Institute is headed by Prof. T.A.Daminov a Corresponding Member of the Republican Academy of Science and his deputies in educational, scientific and clinical work. All of them are graduates of the Institute increasing its famous traditions. The activities of the faculties are headed by the deans. The Rector is Council is a consultative body, it collectively directs and coordinates the work of all departments and services of the Institute and determines the basic orientations of its activity. The Institute has the following faculties: General Practitioner, stomatological, medico-pedagogical (trains GP and teachers for medical colleges) and faculty of nurses with high education.

The Institute has the Republic Center of professors' and teachers' refreshment training for personnel of colleges and medical institutes of Uzbekistan. At present the institute has over 3000 students from our and other countries.

Beginning from the third year the students study Pharmacology, Pathologic physiology, Operative Surgery with Topographic Anatomy, Pathologic Anatomy and some clinical disciplines which lay the base for formation of a really good doctor.

There are departments of Surgery, Internal Diseases, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Roentgenology and Radiology, Physiatry, Skin and Venereal Diseases and also Nervous, Infectious Diseases, Psychiatry, Therapeutically, Surgical, Orthopedic and Children Stomatology at the Institute.

The students' knowledge is checked by the rating system (i.e. in scores for every lesson) at the end of some basic parts of the disciplines under study and at the end of the subject course. The final control is performed in the Computer Test-Center. It should be stressed that the rating system is an objective and progressive method of knowledge testing; it enables to assess everyday academic work of a student.
