Ivan Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University

Ivan Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University (August 2013)

Immediately behind Archangel Michael's Church among the Clinics are the clinics themselves - the Ivan Sechenov First Moscow State Medical University, which was founded in 1758 as the medical faculty of the Moscow State University. Running all along the University's premises are several statues of leading Russian doctors: gynaecologist Vladimir Snegirev, paediatrician Nil Filatov (on the corner of Skver Devichievo Polya), field-surgeon Nikolai Pirogov and physiologist Ivan Sechenov; as well as busts of Nikolai Semashko, a people's commissar of public health, and Boris Petrovsky, a minister of health of the USSR. The university also runs the History of Medicine Museum, which is situated in the pretty building behind the bust of Ivan Sechenov.
