History of the Department

For the first time in KSMA the Department of Family Medicine (FM) was formed in 1999 on the basis of the docent course of polyclinic therapy of the Department of internal diseases №1, headed by academician of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences, MD, prof. M. M. Mirrakhimov. Docent course of outpatient therapy was established on 28 August 1991 and headed by Honored doctor of the KR, Associate Professor A. O. Aytkulova.

On October 1, 1999 the course was reorganized into an independent Department of Family Medicine, headed by prof. T. Meimanaliev. Assosiate professor G.Nanaeva made a great contribution to the development of family medicine in Kyrgyzstan. Under her leadership, new training programs were developed for the course of Family Medicine of pre - and post-graduate level, training of doctors for Family Medicine in Kyrgyzstan began. However, in 2004 the Department of family medicine was reduced to the course of outpatient therapy.

In February 2017, in accordance with the health needs of the country, the independent Department of family medicine was revived, and as the head was appointed prof.N. Brimkulov. At the Department in accordance with international requirements were revised training programs, developed new teaching materials (Catalogs of competencies, Diary resident), introduced modern approaches for monitoring and evaluation. Multi-faceted work with students on the basis of the scientific circle, holding "open meetings" with graduates, involving students in the organization of conferences and congresses with the participation of world leaders in family medicine led to a sharp increase in residents. Thus, in August 2018, the number of applicants to the residency reached 56, which is 28 times higher than in 2015. Dramatically increased the volume of teaching work required to strengthen the personnel potential of the University in family medicine. In this regard, in September 2018, the Department was reorganized into two departments, namely the family medicine of pre-diploma and family medicine of postgraduate education.

Since September 1, 2018, the management of the Department of family medicine of postgraduate education was entrusted to Professor N. Brimkulov. N.
