In 1971, at the Department of Hospital Surgery, for students of the V course, studying in the specialty “General Medicine”, training sessions in dentistry were organized in the amount of 20 hours per study group.
Training sessions in this discipline held a dentist GI. Arakelyan. In subsequent years, with the students of medical, and then pediatric faculties - Associate Professor FF Yegorov. A small amount of training hours suggested teaching only the basics of dentistry and maxillofacial surgery.
The practical public health of the Chuvash Republic was constantly experiencing a shortage of dentists. Before the opening of the Faculty of Dentistry, there were only 2 dentists and 1 dentist per 10 thousand people in 1984.
In 1989, the course of dentistry at the Department of Hospital Surgery was transformed into the Department of Dentistry, headed by Professor F.S. Hamitov. At the Department of Dentistry, teaching of the main disciplines of the dental profile was conducted. The course of therapeutic dentistry was headed by Ph.D., associate professor A.Pavlov, and the course of prosthetic dentistry - associate professor F.F. Yegorov. After defending his doctoral dissertation in 1991, A.F. Pavlov headed the department of therapeutic dentistry. In 1994, the course and the department of dental specialty were transformed into a dental faculty as part of the Medical Institute of Chelyabinsk State University.
Since the opening of the “Medicine” specialty, 5265 doctors have been issued, who successfully work not only in the Chuvash Republic, but also in other regions of the Russian Federation, as well as in the CIS and in many foreign countries (USA, Germany, Israel, etc.). In 2007, the number of graduates in “General Medicine” was 162 people, of which 17 were foreign specialists from 8 countries (China, Nepal, Kenya, Sudan, etc.). At 19 departments of the medical faculty, the teaching staff has a degree of approximately 70%. The contingent of students at this faculty annually is more than 1,200 people. Training sessions are held on the basis of almost all medical institutions of Cheboksary, as well as on the basis of republican medical institutions (Republican Hospital No. 1, Republican Eye Hospital, Oncology Center, etc.).
Due to the significant shortage of dentists in Chuvashia's practical health care, the government of the republic and the university administration have been tasked to open a new specialty “Dentistry” at the medical faculty. The solution of this task was entrusted to the deputy of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, Professor V.Ye. Volkov, who carried out the necessary work on the project, and in 1985 the specialty "Dentistry" was opened with an annual admission of 25 people. The opening of this specialty required the construction of a new academic building. The building of the Republican dental clinic was built in a short time. At that time, the leaders of the republic, I.P. Prokopyev, N.I. Viktorov, R.I. Eruslanova, Minister of Health of the Czech Republic N.G. Grigoriev. The new clinical base was headed by the Minister of Health of the Czech Republic V.E. Mikhailova, who for many years has provided great assistance to the staff of the departments in the preparation of dental personnel.
In connection with the constant increase in the number of students in the dental faculty, it became necessary to expand the clinical base for the training of highly qualified specialists for practical healthcare.
Teaching is conducted in 33 departments, where the heads are doctors of science and professors; 36 Doctors of Medical Sciences, more than 70 assistant professors and over 60 Candidates of Medical Sciences work with students. The faculty has a graduate school in obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, histology.
The practical training of future doctors begins with the second year, when students master the skills of caring for healthy and sick children as a nurse's assistant. At the end of the third year, a mandatory monthly practice of an assistant ambulance and emergency aid is conducted. Within five weeks after the IV course - medical practice in hospitals (for surgery, therapy, obstetrics and gynecology), after the V course - work as an assistant doctor of emergency and emergency care (outpatient practice).
From 1987 to the present, the training of clinical residents has been successfully carried out. In the specialty "Pediatrics" prepared more than 25 candidates of medical sciences, 1 doctor of medical sciences. The faculty cooperates with the Scientific Center of Children's Health, RAMS, Moscow Medical Academy, Moscow Research Institute of Pediatrics and Pediatric Surgery, Kazan, Ivanovo, Nizhny Novgorod State Medical Universities and other universities of the country.
During training, students can realize their individual abilities in various medical activities: each department has student scientific circles, where under the guidance of teachers it is possible to conduct scientific work, deepening their knowledge and practical training. The faculty is actively working student scientific community. Faculty students systematically participate in various scientific conferences. The faculty has a computer class, students have access to the Internet.
