The history of VSMU began in 1934, when a medical university was opened in Vitebsk with a total of 250 students.
The head of the medical school was S.A. Khazanov and 12 famous professors at that time.
In 1938, the hospital was renamed Vitebsk Medical Institute.
The Second World War suspended the development of an educational institution. Many students and workers defended the honor of the Motherland and never returned. But already in 1946 he resumed his activities headed by A.I. Savchenko. And in 1948 a student scientific society was created.
Over time, the university expanded, and within its walls the best teachers of the country worked and made programs. Periodically, decisions were made to open new faculties and specialties, which made it possible to train specialists for a more serious program and to convey to them in detail the basics of medicine in the chosen direction.
Over time, the university began to develop infrastructure. Thus, 5 dormitories were opened, and in 1987 - a sports complex and a canteen.
The university led a gradual development, so in the 2000s, a knowledge quality control system was developed and implemented. The educational program trained high-level specialists who were in demand not only within our country, but also in neighboring countries. In 2003, the VSMU Clinic was established.
