Medical education opportunities galore in Ukraine
Thursday June 9 2005 00:00 IST

TIRUCHY: With globalisation of education throwing new vistas for foreign
and Indian Universities, Ukraine-based Lugansk State Medical University
has embarked on an ambitious programme to popularise its international
standard medical programmes.

Vice-Chancellor Dr Irina Petrovna is on a three-month long visit to
south-east Asian countries to oversee the spot admission process and
scholarship examinations organised by the university in association with
the overseas educational consultants.

She is camping in select cities in Tamil Nadu for the past few weeks to
monitor the admission process.

Briefing presspersons here on Wednesday, she said the university had been
accorded the highest level of accreditation. The university has produced
14,737 doctors and 116 nurses since its inception in 1956.

As of now, more than 400 Indian students and another 100 of Indian origin
were pursuing various degree programmes in the university.

The programmes offered by the university was fully recognised by the
Medical Council of India (MCI), World Health Organisation (WHO), US
Education Department and General Council of Medicine of Great Britain. The
students were also eligible for United States Medical Licensing
Examination (USMLE) and similar such tests conducted by the United

"The university enjoys recognition in all parts of the globe and is ranked
30th in the world by WHO and American Medical Sciences,'' she said.

Detailing on the advantages of pursuing medical programmes in the
university, she said the fee structure was one of the most economical
among reputed institutions internationally. The whole six-year programme,
including one-year internship, cost around Rs 11 lakh.

"The tuition fee is Rs 1.03 lakh, hostel fee Rs 9,000 with Indian food
costing Rs 36,000 and health insurance of Rs 4,500 per annum that works
out to around Rs 1.5 lakh per annum. However, the students need to pay
between Rs 2.5 and Rs 2.7 lakh in the first year for travel and other
related formalities,'' she said.

Currently, the university was conducting scholarship examinations in
Chennai, Tiruchy and Coimbatore. Students scoring more than 85 percent in
the exam were being extended full scholarship, while partial scholarship
were being given to students based on their performance.

"Seventy four of the 174 students in the last batch of Indian and
Indian-origin students are availing scholarship,'' she added.
