Norilsk medical school began with twelve desks and skeleton

In March 1958, it was decided to transfer the medical school from Minusinsk to Norilsk: the growing city lacked nurses.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The first teachers also moved from Minusinsk. On September 1, 190 first students came to the lecture: 130 future paramedics and 60 nurses. Not everyone made it to the final year in 1960. On July 4, the first graduation was celebrated: 132 diplomas, 12 of them with honors. Seven of the best received referrals to the medical institute.

At first, the school was housed in one-story barracks. Later it moved to a hospital town, but to a building unsuitable for the educational process.

When that building was declared emergency and intended for partial demolition, the medical school moved again: only 12 desks and a skeleton model were taken with them.

And finally, since 1980, the school has been located in its own premises on Talnahskaya street, where it is adjacent to a dermatovenerologic dispensary.

In 2009, the northernmost medical school became a college. For 60 years of work, more than five thousand specialists graduated from it, over 400of them received diplomas with honors.
