Historical Reference

According to the Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 1081 dated October 23, 1964, the Medical Faculty was established on the basis of the Zaporozhye Pharmaceutical Institute by the order of the Ministry of Health of the USSR No. 484 dated October 27, 1964. At that time, six medical HEI of Ukraine conducted admission campaigns for students to study in Zaporizhzhia: Kharkiv, Simferopol, Chernivtsi, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ternopil and Luhansk medical institutes. During the first semester students studied at these institutes, and during the second one — at the Medical Faculty of the Zaporozhye Pharmaceutical Institute. In the 1965–1966 academic year, the Zaporozhye Pharmaceutical Institute conducted the first enrollment for the first year (220 students) and formed the third year batch of students from other universities, who expressed a desire to continue their studies at the Faculty.

By 1968, 22 departments were organized at the Medical Faculty, which employed 130 teachers, including 12 professors and doctors of sciences, 82 associate professors and candidates of sciences.

On January 29, 1968, the Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No 61 on renaming the Zaporozhye Pharmaceutical Institute into the Zaporozhye Medical Institute was issued, and in 1969 the first graduation of doctors took place.

In 1996 the Dean's Office of the Medical Faculty was organized. Since 2001, it is headed by Associate Professor Volodymyr Kompaniiets.
