Ruslan Emirveliev, Head of the International Development Department, Sechenov University, also attended the ceremony. He expressed his hope that the fellowship came to be a valuable contribution made by foreign doctors to their specialisation and that their visit to Russia was just the beginning of fruitful and long-term cooperation between our countries.

The event ended with the awarding of fellowship certificates to the participants. They also shared their impressions and expressed their gratitude to the organisers for the opportunity to gain invaluable practical experience at Russia’s leading medical university.
