Between September and November 2020 online international educational quest for Indian students, studying in Russia, was held at Kursk State Medical University.

The participants of these events were not only from KSMU, but also from other medical universities such as Nizhny Novgorod State Medical University, Siberian State Medical University, Asian Medical Institute of Kyrgyzstan, Kazan State Medical University and Volgograd State Medical University.

The quest included different MCQ-quizzes, based on different subjects, such as Anatomy, Microbiology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Otorhinolaryngology and Ophthalmology. The questions were selected on the basis of the clinical questions, included in the screening exam for foreign medical graduates conducted in India.

The event was organized with the assistance of the Deputy Head of Education Department of the International Medical Institute of KSMU, associate professor G.N. Goryainova and the Indian Medical Student Association of Kursk State Medical University.

The initiative to conduct competitive events got a wonderful response from the students, who expressed a wish to make them traditional. The winners of the events were awarded with prizes.
