About the University
Dnipro Medical Institute of conventional and alternative medicine was the establishment in 1993, by the former dean of Dnipro State University. The dean had a vision to transform the State University into a top medical school in Europe known for its excellent education and internationally renowned doctors, but bureaucracy and politicians were holding him back. The dean had a bigger vision than the short-sighted politicians, who were more interested in making as much money, as fast as possible. The dean and a few fellow doctors gathered the courage to form a union and begin their own private university just next door to the State University. Hence, Dnipro Medical Institute was founded in 1993. The dean along with other heads of Departments in the State University worked tirelessly and altruistically to achieve their vision. They sacrificed lots of their time, money and efforts to reach the world-class standard that the university has now become.
Since Dnipro State University and Dnipro Medical Institute are in the same building, they cooperate and work closely together. The majority of professors work in conjunction with both the universities, meaning the same teachers teach at both universities. The students of both universities are taught together at the same state Hospitals and laboratories.
