The Simatex actively promotes its educational potential among Iranian schools, works on the accreditation of programs by the Ministry of Health of the Islamic Republic of Iran. All this positively affects the image of the university - over the past two years, more than 220 citizens of Iran have entered it.
To further popularize Russian medical education and attract applicants, the Simatex with the Center of International Education (Sechenov University) held a full-time round of the International Olympiad in Chemistry and Biology on April 28, 2018. This is the first Olympiad in the history of Russian-Iranian educational projects, which was held thanks to the support of the University of Islamic Confessions and personally to the rector of the University Dr. Mohammad Hossein Mokhtari, as well as Dr. Abbas Gahari, the Adviser of the University of the International Cooperation in Russia and the countries of CIS.
More than 120 students of the last years of the schools from Tehran, Shiraz, Tebriz, Ahvaz took part in the final stage of the Olympiad. After 1.5 hours of hard work, most students coped with the tests adequately, and those who scored more than 85 points out of 100, as previously announced, received the pre-emptive right to enter the university this year.
Within the framework of the visit to Tehran, negotiations were held with the leadership of the University of the Islamic Confessions, as well as with the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran Mahmudraza Mozaffari. In particular, the creation of a joint Center for the Study of the Russian Language and Preparing for Admission to Medical Universities of Russia was discussed on the basis of the Iranian University. This will allow in practice to approach the implementation of the concept of the educational continuum "school-university-clinic" for foreign students.
