I come from the city of Jamshedpur in eastern India. Being an industrial hub and most of the people well to do, one cannot generally see the lack of access to good healthcare. But when I saw the surrounding areas, I was filled with the desire to do something to make medical facilities more easily available to all. That is why I joined RNRMU because this institute gives a whole new perspective towards medicine and cure.Sailesh Kr.

Many people must have visited Russia from my city but I feel a sense of purpose for being here- being able to learn, being able to develop a vision, to prove myself.

This place gives to vision to see and wings to fly.Srishty Mehrotra - 1st year student in Russian National Research Medical University, from Kanpur
I am from a mid- sized town and for me studies have always been about cut throat competition and despite that no one guarantees you success. But in a place like RNRMU, they first remove the stiff competition and make your mind reach its creative and innovative best in a relaxed environment. All you get to from here is great success and you never realize when you have done something big.Ayushi Sharma- 1st year student in Russian National Research Medical University, from Jamshedpur
I always wanted to make a difference to the world and that is why I chose to study medicine. But simply going to a regular college would not give you the edge that you need to create a difference. Today I can say that RNRMU has given me that edge over others.Archana- Ist year student at Russian National Research Medical University, from Kerala

I come from a small town called Madhubani in the Indian state of Bihar where it is difficult for a girl to imagine to study medicine, leave alone going abroad to do so.
