Medicine is one of the most popular fields of study, foreign students often choose it. The Russian medical diploma confirms not only attendance of the lectures, but also practical experience obtained by the student in medical facilities. The medical education in Russia is based on the profound research and development foundation and the network of operating clinics, where all students get a mandatory training and the experience required for their medical specialization.
After returning to their countries with their diploma or when planning to move to any country in the world, foreign graduates often face the issue of Russian medical degree recognition. Though the diploma was awarded in another country, it still can be confirmed, but the confirmation procedure depends on the particular country.
Stages of Medical Diploma Recognition
To use the diploma in your country, you have to complete several stages. The first stage is its legalization within the Russian Federation that authorizes you to present it in other countries. Then comes the nostrification or validation in the country of residence. No legalization is required if it is abolished by a treaty between such residence country and the Russian Federation or if the institution, where you present your diploma, requires no such legalization.
