The Department of Pediatrics of USU celebrates its 25th anniversary!
An event was held at the Regional Children's Clinical Hospital, dedicated to the 25th anniversary of the Department of Pediatrics of the flagship university. The event began with the anthem of pediatricians of Russia performed by the choir of the Faculty of Culture and Art. Then, university pediatric doctors accepted congratulations from the top officials of the university and representatives of the regional healthcare system, colleagues, students and grateful alumni.
First Vice-Rector- Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs Sergey Baklanov said: “The department, founded back in the 90s, can rightfully be proud of its achievements. A powerful and recognized scientific school for training medical personnel has been formed here. I have great respect for the profession of a doctor. We trust the most precious thing to pediatricians - the life and health of our children. There should not be mediocre students in this profession. It requires the highest responsibility in studies and subsequent careers”.
Sergey Borisovich handed a gift to the head of the department, Irina Solovieva, and awarded the best workers, including the founder of the Department of Pediatrics, Professor Alexei Kuselman, with honorary diplomas. Alexey Isaevich and Irina Leonidovna told what path the department had traveled and what its employees had managed to achieve during this time. Many pediatric alumni today are the executives in medical facilities and institutions.
One of the brightest moments of the event was students’ creative performances.

Goryachev.
