Yerevan State Medical University (YSMU) is one of the leading government medical universities in Eastern Europe.

About YSMU Medical Programme

YSMU is an outstanding medical university, providing students with the necessary practical training in modern technology to help them be successful doctors anywhere in the world.  The added advantage for YSMU students is their having followed the six-year course in the English medium.  Another feature in this programme is that YSMU directs its students to exams such as the ones conducted by AMC and the Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB – UK).  One of the greatest opportunities YSMU students have is that all doctors attached to YSMU are government-registered doctors.

The State University was named by a European physician, Dr. MkhitarHeratsi, who lived in the Mediterranean Era.  The University is located in the beautiful, salubrious surroundings in the scenic Caucasian Mountains of Eastern Europe.

The first international students of YSMU were those of Armenian descent from Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Cyprus and Bulgaria.  Since 1985, the University started providing education in Russian language and, since 2000, in English language for international and overseas students and representatives of the Armenian Diaspora.  The number of international students at YSMU is steadily growing.  YSMU hosts international students from countries such as Australia, Belarus, Canada, China, France, Georgia, Germany, the Great Britain, Greece, India, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Moldova, Poland, Russia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, the USA, Uzbekistan and Venezuela.  The majority of them have chosen English as the language of study.

Furthermore, the number of international graduates at YSMU is increasing as well.  Over two thousand Armenian and Russian-speaking international graduates and over 1154 English speaking graduates have become YSMU alumni and many of them have been working as doctors in India, USA, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Russia and Iran.
