On the 29th of July, the university hosted a solemn ceremony of awarding diplomas to graduates-residents of the Medical Institute of IKBFU. Qualification was received by 68 people who successfully completed training in 14 areas of residency.

2022nd graduates’ studies fell at a difficult time during the coronavirus pandemic. During this period, residents did not stand aside and volunteered to help senior medical workers in the red zone of Kaliningrad hospitals, where they gained invaluable experience.

The graduates were congratulated by Alexander Fedorov, Rector of IKBFU:

“Today is your special day. You have received the best profession in the world, completed the full path of education at the university. Your work is important for every person. The university has done everything it could for you, but it will never be enough, because learning is a lifelong process. Come back to us, write dissertations, get new competencies and skills. We will always support you.”

Director of the Medical Institute Sergei Korenev addressed the residents:

“We are very grateful that you chose the Medical Institute of IKBFU to study. This says a lot, because among you are representatives of 17 Russian universities. You completed your specialization in Samara, Nizhny Novgorod, Smolensk, Tula, Blagoveshchensk and many other cities, but completed your residency and received a narrow specialty in Kaliningrad. I also thank your mentors who have put a lot of effort into you. Your graduation is unusual: for the first time, medical students have encountered a pandemic during their studies. It is very valuable that you responded to this challenge and stood hand in hand with your colleagues in the fight against coronavirus. I wish you a bright career, success, victories in the professional field."

Earlier, on the 5th of July, diplomas were awarded to graduates of higher and secondary education at the Cathedral.
