PAVLOV MEDICAL UNIVERSITY, St. Petersburg State Medical University situated at 8/6 Leo Tolstoy Street. It was founded by subscription in 1897 as the first national Women's Medical Institute, a successor to Women's Medical Courses established in 1872 as a part of the Medical and Surgical Academy. The main building and hostel were erected by architects E. S. Vorotilov and A. N. Vekshinsky, respectively, in 1897. Receiving state support from 1904, the institute was equated to a medicine faculty at university. It was transformed into the First Petrograd Medical Institute in 1918; Petrograd was replaced by Leningrad in 1924, and named after I. P. Pavlov in 1936. It was renamed as the Medical University in 1994. It continued its education program even during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-45 with a military hospital established in the institute. The university has the faculties of therapy, dentistry, sports medicine, and practitioners' postgraduate education, as well as over 50 departments, 16 clinics, 48 laboratories and divisions, and four research institutes. There is also the Minor Schoolchildren's Medical Academy attached to the university. It also has clinical facilities such as the St. Peter and Paul Hospital established in 1835 and known as F. F. Erismann's Hospital in Soviet times. In the university area, there is a monument to W. K. Rontgen sculpted by V. A. Sinaysky in 1929 and a monument to physicians who fell during World War II erected by sculptor A. K. Krutikov and architect L. V. Badalyan in 1987. Attached to the building are commemorative plaques to D. K. Zabolotny, V. A. Almazov, G. F. Lang, I. I. Dzhanelidze, M. D. Tushinsky, and M. V. Chernorutsky.
