Our new Canadian School of Medicine will offer world-class medical training to an international community in the cultural hub of Russia and provide a pathway for future doctors to ultimately practice medicine in North America.
HOUSTON (PRWEB) March 09, 2021
GMED Global LLC., an international health care institution specializing in medical education and health care workforce development and solutions, today announced that it has signed an Agreement of Cooperation with Kazan State Medical University (KSMU), the third oldest medical school in Russia, to create the first international model of medical education in Russia. The partnership agreement forges a pathway for students to practice medicine in North America following graduation from the new Canadian School of Medicine (CSM), an innovative four-year graduate program that will function as a structural component of KSMU. Scheduled to welcome its first class of students in Fall 2022, the campus of CSM will be located in the renovated Kazan River Port as a wholly contained Living and Learning Center, and will feature the new medical school, student, and faculty housing, restaurants, and athletic facilities. It will allow students and faculty to have interactive learning beyond the classroom venues for anytime, anywhere education.
In addition to KSMU’s Institutional accreditation, GMED, in collaboration with KSMU, has already received final accreditation of the first Internal Medicine Residency Program outside of Canada by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, This program is based at KSMU’s 1000 bed teaching hospital and will facilitate a direct pathway for MD licensure in Canada and the United States.
“We are so excited to launch this new medical school in partnership with KSMU and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada,” said Dr. Ramin Ahmadi, Co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of GMED. “Our new Canadian School of Medicine will offer world-class medical training to an international community in the cultural hub of Russia and provide a pathway for future doctors to ultimately practice medicine in North America. By offering the first-of-its-kind international model for medical education, we’re building bridges across the global community to help future doctors access top-notch training that will set them up for success across continents.”
CSM’s unique curriculum is based on a four-year model that enables students to engage in an immersive learning continuum while horizontally integrating the clinics and rotations typically taught during medical school years 1-4. Students can then vertically integrate their education through a residency program following graduation. This model allows continuity of learning, regular assessment, and a rigorous clinical curriculum from the first day of medical school through graduation. CSM students will also have the opportunity to pursue international clinical rotations, and study global medical systems and diseases.
Regarding the new Agreement of Cooperation, Aleksey Sozinov, MD, the Rector and Chief Executive Officer, shared this statement: “KSMU is excited to collaborate with GMED to create an academic center of excellence in medical science and clinical education to help alleviate the worldwide manpower shortage of physicians.”
GMED Global will work in partnership with KSMU to facilitate recruitment and enrollment for international students living outside of Russia and Eastern Europe. Headquartered in Houston, Texas, GMED Global will also assist international students with travel, passports, visas, and housing.
