UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

The only university of Medicine and Pharmacy of Moldova is situated in Chisinau, and it is named after Nicolae Testemitanu - a great surgeon, scientist and former Minister of Health(1963-1968) of SSR Moldova. It was founded in 1945 as a filial of the Medical Institute Nr.2 from Leningrad (Sankt Petersburg).

Studies take place at specialized buildings of the university, placed in the neighbourhood of the central one and in different regions of the city, so the student can get to know the capital, while going to the classes.
