The realities of the modern world are changing at a breathtaking speed. Due to the high rates of technological progress, new professions are constantly appearing, at the same time some familiar specialties are disappearing into oblivion.
Not a doctor’s specialty!
No matter how life changes, specialists in the field of medicine will be needed always and everywhere.
This truth is confirmed by the high demand for doctors around the world.

High requirements are imposed on doctors: they must be responsible, attentive, with developed analytical abilities and combine love for people with firmness of character, and they will also have to study all their lives.
However, the medical direction includes not only the profession of a doctor, but also related specialties.
To become a doctor, you need to get a higher education, therefore, we consider admission only to universities.

What to choose? Pros and cons of admission in Russia and abroad
