    Azerbaijan State University was founded in 1919 by decision of the Azerbaijanian Parliament. It consisted of 4 departments including a Medical faculty. In 1919 the special preparation committee was organised under the leadership of Professor Razumovski and three months later the university admitted the first group of students. In 1924 the first graduates left the Medical faculty. later 30 graduates earned Meritorious Title of Physician-Doctor. In 1930 the Medical Faculty had 1407 students of which 348 were Azerbaijanians.

    On 9 May 1930 the Medical Faculty of Azerbaijan State University reorganised into an independent Azerbaijan Medical Institute with two faculties - Medical Preventive and Sanitary - Hygienic 9including tropical diseases). In 30'' the new generation of Azerbaijan students developed: A. M. Aliyev, M. M. Efendo-zade, D. M. Abdullayev, S. M. Salinov etc. In 1940 the two faculties of the medical institute there were 45 departments. The annual admission number was 500 students.

    During the period of the Second World War the Medical Institute made a remarkable contribution to the preparation of doctors for the front and helped very much the numerous evacuated hospitals. In spite of the nearness of the front line the Institute did not interrupt its work even for a single day. In that period Professor Topchubashev elaborated and inculcated the method of combined anaesthesia, which is in a great use up to our days. He offered more effective method of treatment of the after effects of heart trauma.

    In 60's the Azerbaijan Medical Institute opened new departments: practical training (therapy) and patient and scientific-research sector.

    In 1957 a remarkable and historic occasion was celebrated. The Azerbaijan Medical Institute was named after Nariman Narimanov.

    From 1991 the Azerbaijan Medical Institute was reformed into Azerbaijan medical University and became an independent education centre.

    Today the university has more than 600,000 book in its library and 75 departments and staff of 1117 people. Every year the university hosts and organises conferences, symposiums and seminars. The university has large computer facilities and all the administration is computerised.
