To apply for a Bachelor's degree (Medical Specialist), applicants need to have a complete general secondary education.

Admission to the first year of a Bachelor's degree program (Master's degree in medicine) on the basis of complete general secondary education is carried out in the form of External Independent Evaluation, entrance examinations, or interviews in the cases provided by the Rules of Admission.

The University also admits persons with the education and qualification level of Junior Specialist to the first year (with a reduced period of study) or second (third) year (to vacant places, with a standard period of study) to a certain number of places to obtain a Bachelor's degree (education and qualification level of Medical Specialist), subject to admission to a related field of study.

Persons with complete general secondary education who apply for full-time study, except for those eligible to participate in the competition according to the results of entrance examinations or to be enrolled by interview and quotas, apply online only in accordance with the Procedure for Submission and Consideration of Online Applications for Participation in Competitive Selection to Higher Education Institutions.

All other categories of applicants submit documents in paper form to the Admissions Committee within the time limits specified for accepting documents.

Applicants can submit copies of documents that are certified by the originals by the Admissions Committee or according to the order prescribed by law. However, copies of documents without originals will not be considered.

When participating in the competition, the applicant submits the originals of documents only once (fulfillment of enrollment requirements). If, within the established time limit, applicants fail to submit to the Admissions Committee the original documents on the educational (education and qualification) level and their appendices, certificates of External Independent Evaluation, and other documents provided by the Rules of Admission to the University, they lose the right to be enrolled in state-funded places, as well as to study at the expense of state preferential long-term loans.
