Tbilisi State Medical University (TSMU)

is a leading medical university in Tbilisi, Georgia.[1] More than 85 years have passed since Tbilisi State Medical Institute was founded on the basis of the faculty of Medicine at Tbilisi State University (TSU). In 1992 Tbilisi State Medical Institute was renamed in Medical University.

On June 10, 1930, the Tbilisi University was reorganized and founded by the Tbilisi State Medical Institute, which became the new strongest incentive for higher medical education and medical science development in Georgia.

During the establishment, the Institute had three faculties: medicinal-prophylactic (dental department), sanitary-prophylactic and pharmacologic-chemical.

Currently, there are five faculties in the medical university: medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, public health, physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Analysis of revolutionary, worldview and political changes in the objective, in some cases, in the country and society at the beginning of the nineties of the last century, made it clear that the institution needed to establish greater space for future tasks; Newly-acquired autonomy must be incorporated into the new university structure, which means that the medical institution should be transformed into university, for which the existence of the foreseeable existence of the Institute has already existed.
