Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia Faculty of the Russian language and general educational disciplines The Faculty of the Russian language and general educational disciplines was found- ed in the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia as a preliminary faculty in 1960. Since its foundation this faculty has prepared more than 20 thousands internationalstu- dents. 8 departments of the faculty are aimed at preparing international students for their further successful education at the main Rus- sian Language faculties and further success- ful education at the main faculties of PFUR and other Russian universities. Every year more than 1,000 students from more than 100 foreign countries study here. Foreign students have a 6-month or a one-year intensive course of Russian and general educational disciplines accord- ing to their major. The faculty improves ex- isting traditions and develops new fields of activity: new educational programs, stan- dards and tests for students and professors Dean of the Faculty of the Russian language and  general educational  disciplines 69

Different countries,different destinies – one university Faculty of the Russian language and general educational disciplines are elaborated, innovational educational technologies and concepts which lay the foundation for new textbooks including in- teractive ones are worked out and unique methodologies of teaching the Russian lan- guage are successfully implemented. The departments organize methodical seminars, scientific study groups for students, special contests, and international scientific conferences devoted to different problems of teaching Russian as a foreign language and interdisciplinary coordination. The fa­ culty places high emphasis on educational work since it is the most important element of the educational process. All departments hold traditional lessons in the format of concerts “We speak Rus- sian and sing in Russian”. The lesson “Day of Victory” which is one of the main university events has become a hallmark of the fac- ulty. Students and veterans are invited to participate in it. Student conferences are traditionally conducted in Russian. The fac- ulty also organizes special lessons in order to familiarize foreign students with Russia as a country of residence and with its culture.

Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia Institute of Medicine PFUR Faculty of Medicine was founded in 1961 and in 2014 evolved in the Institute of Medicine of PFUR The Institute is equipped with the most modern diagnostic and sci- entific instruments, students learn the bases of functioning of human body, how to di- agnose correctly, how to treat and prevent diseases. 44 departments and 2 courses are re- sponsible for multifaceted theoretical and practical education of our specialists. Nowadays the Institute of Medicine is equipped with up-to-date clinical laborato- ries with training educational system based on information and computer testing and TV broadcasting. For practical classes there are sub-departments of computer tomog- raphy, lever fiberscanning and andrology as well as dentistry sub-department where students and interns can gain practical skills. PFUR is the first Russian university equip­ ped with the machinery that allows to study the functioning of human body in 3D for- mat. The advantage of studying here is that except for recommended subjects we take into account specific needs of the countries our students come from. Of course great attention is paid to foreign languages studies, which opens to our stu- dents all the doors. Scientific research conducted by the sci- entists of the Institute encompass almost all the problems of biology and medicine. Our medical students not once became the winners of local and international competi- tions and contests. Presentation of the virtual anatomic table 73
