The admissions campaign-2021 opened the SibMed doors for 1827 new students

In total, SibMed received more than 12 thousand applications. Applicants from 65 regions of the Russian Federation and countries all over the world applied to study at SibMed.
“Thanks to the well-coordinated work of the Admissions Office and the entire University team, we managed to achieve positive results, although the admissions campaign was extremely tense. The number of applicants is approximately the same as last year. However, 2020 saw a record growth - by 2,000 applications compared to the pre-Covid year of 2019. The pandemic has made the profession of a doctor more prestigious. In addition, SibMed increased the number of state-funded places and it reached almost 1,000 in 2021. We lead in the number of state-funded places among medical universities beyond the Urals. The admissions campaign in 2021 was also focused on employer-sponsored education. At the Departments of General Medicine and Pediatrics, the share of employer-sponsored admissions was higher than 70%,” commented SibMed Rector Evgeny Kulikov.
The specialties "Dentistry", "Pediatrics" and "General Medicine" showed the highest competition.
