In 1992, reviving the University tradition of medical education, the Academic Council and Rector's Office made a decision to open a faculty of fundamental medicine at MSU.

Our curriculum focuses on natural sciences and biology, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, molecular and cell biology, anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, genetics. A special stress is on foreign languages and medical applications of information technologies. The curriculum includes a number of courses on the Liberal Arts given by lecturers from MSU and other scientific and educational institutions: the history of Russia, philosophy, politology, medical and biological ethics, the history of medicine, the basics of pedagogy and psychology, legal aspects of medical practice.

Our academic staff consists of 113 full professors, associate professors and assistants, 12 academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences and 2 correspondent members of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. We regularly invite leading scientists from other Russian institutions and European and American universities to deliver lectures at the Faculty.

The Faculty has 12 departments: the Department of Normal and Topographical Physiology, the Department of Normal and Topographical Anatomy, the Department of Physicochemical Medicine,the Department of Biological and Medical Chemistry, the Department of Pharmacology, the Department of Surgery, the Department of Therapy, the Department of Internal Medicine, the Department of Multidisciplinary Clinical Training, the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the Department of General and Clinical Pathology, the Department of Ecological and Extreme Medicine and 4 research laboratories: the Laboratory of Adaptation Medicine, the Laboratory of Cell and Genetic Technology, the Laboratory of Pharmacology of Cardiovascular System, the Laboratory of Computer Technologies for Medicine.

We have affiliations with the medical institutions of the Central Medical Department of the Executive Office of the President of the Russian Federation, Sechenov Moscow Medical Academy, the Fertility and Preconception Centre, the Neurological Centre of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, Glavmosstroy Hospital, Moscow Regional Research Clinical Institute (MONIKI) and Moscow clinical hospitals №№ 31, 64, 67, that provide all the necessary conditions for our students to have clinical training up to the highest standards of medical education.

During their coursework the students are involved in research at the leading Moscow clinics and laboratories. The best senior students have an opportunity to go abroad to take part of their course at universities and scientific centres there.

The Faculty graduates are awarded a degree in medical care and a qualification of medical practitioner. The Faculty of Fundamental Medicine offers its graduates internship training or residency training in obstetrics and gynecology and therapeutics, or post-graduate studies in biochemistry, biophysics, pharmacology and physiology, doing research work in their special sphere of interest.

The undergraduate program at the Faculty is completed in 6 years.
