Sergei Ivanovich Georgievsky – Rector of CSMI in 1951-1970
A Round Lecture-Hall


In 1951, assistant professor S. I. Georgievsky became the director of the Institute, subsequently he was nominated the rector. He initiated a new stage of development of the Institute. That was a difficult process. There was a need to thoroughly strengthen the material and educational base of the Institute, to create conditions for development of the medical science, to equip the students’ life with conveniences.

In the fifties, extensive civil works were started in which the students actively participated. Gradually, the outlook of the main block was changing: a Corinthian portico was erected in front of the entrance; the left extension, the part of the building where the theoretical departments are now placed, and the round lecture - hall were built. Then, the house of culture, the stadium, and a part of Block 2 were constructed.

The most serious and steadfast attention was given to formation of the personnel: the academic staff was being constantly replenished and qualitatively improved. In 1956, there were 27 doctors and 116 candidates of medical sciences at the Institute.

The scope of the science work, the clinical and research bases were growing. Conditions were created for formation and development of scientific schools.

The students’ family was growing too: in 1956, the Institute was already training about two thousand students. The students’ scientific society started its activities, and in 1958 the first volume of students’ scientific works was issued. The students’ scientific conferences were regularly held.

In the sixties, the Institute potential was ever growing: new departments and the Institute own scientific staff were formed; the graduates started to become department heads, the Institute had already had its own scientists and outstanding clinicians.

The training of medical specialists for countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America started in 1961. Since 1967, the process of training and graduation of the foreign students became regular. Further developments proved that the decision to train foreigners was far -seeing indeed, courageous for that time, and fruitful for the subsequent development of the Institute.
