OVERVIEW
Medical University of Sofia is the oldest institution for higher medical education in
Bulgaria. His Majesty Zar Ferdinand founded it by decree in 1917 as a medical faculty of Sofia
University. Worthy to be remembered are doctors M. Russev, A.M. Petrov, St. Vatev, and P.
Orahovatz who prepared Alexandrovska hospital’s departments for the needs of future clinics and
organized training of teaching stuff. Among the first professors of medicine in Bulgaria are V. Mollov,
P. Stojanov, St. Kirkovitch, Iv. Kiprov (first Dean), R.H. Kann, T. Petrov, Pashev, At. Teodorov, etc.
In 1942 a dentistry department opened and its founders were Ass. prof. Sl. Davidov, ??ss. prof. G.
Stiljanov and Prof. Al. Stanishev.

In 1950, the medical faculty was set apart from Sofia University and became independent as a
medical academy with two faculties: medicine and dentistry. In 1951 a pharmaceutical faculty was
added. Next decades several administrative transformations took places — Higher Medical Institute
(1954-1972), Medical Academy (1972-1990), and again Higher Medical Institute. Since 21 May 1995
according to the decision taken by the National Assembly, the Higher Medical Institute became a
Medical University.
