A nurse midwife is an advanced practice registered nurse who has specialized education and training in midwifery. In the countries where exists, they are considered a type of midwife. Midwife means "with woman" and this is the mantra for the American College of Nurse Midwives, "With women for a lifetime." Nurse midwives function as primary healthcare providers for women and most often provide medical care for relatively healthy women, whose births are considered uncomplicated and not "high risk," as well as their neonates.

Teaching medicine at Novosibirsk State University was organized on the basis of the Division of Medical Biology of the Department of Natural Sciences. In 1995, training of specialists qualified in biomedical research was started there. The Same year, the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation decided to open the medical departments at three classical universities in Moscow, Petersburg, and Novosibirsk. The academicians of the Russian Academy of Sciences – Ludmila N.Ivanova, Dmitry G.Knorre, and Valentin V.Vlasov – were among the founders of the university medical department in Novosibirsk. In 2002, Novosibirsk State University was licensed to teach general medicine, and the next year the first students were enrolled in the Division of Medicine of the Department of Natural Sciences. In 2003, the division evolved into a new university department, and professor Andrey G.Pokrovsky, M.D. became the first dean of the department.In 2009, the first graduation of the Medical Department of Novosibirsk State University occurred. All the graduates obtained the Medical Doctor Diploma with specialization in General Medicine, and those who decided to proceed with medical practice were admitted as interns or resident doctors to the different hospitals of Novosibirsk city and the region. Some of the graduates entered the post-graduate education programs at the research institutes of the Siberian Branches of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences and pursued the biomedical research career. The Same year, the state accreditation for the teaching of general medicine was successfully obtained. The Medical Department of Novosibirsk... [-]

Infection, Neurobiology, and Genetics

The separate courses include lectures, seminars, and practical laboratory work.

Immunology covers the organization and development of the immune system, its activation upon stimulation, the various effector mechanisms involved in the innate and adaptive immune responses (cellular and humoral immunity), immunological memory, tolerance mechanisms, transplantation immunology, autoimmunity, hypersensitivity, immune deficiencies, and the defense mechanisms against different pathogens.

The Bacterial Physiology and Pathogenesis course will highlight the intriguing world of bacteria. It will give insight into the bacterial diversity and some of their distinctive habitats. It will illustrate in molecular detail the regulatory mechanisms of microbial adaptation to these varied environments. It will discuss the role of horizontal gene transfer in bacterial evolution and the acquisition of new coding potential, such as antibiotic resistance. The course will present the current state of knowledge regarding pathogenic mechanisms and the major disease-causing bacteria that use them. This will include an explanation at the molecular level of various pathogenic strategies such as motility, biofilms, quorum sensing, secretion systems, toxins, adhesion factors and immune evasion mechanisms. In the face of widespread antibiotic resistance among leading bacterial pathogens, new anti-bacterial treatment and prevention options will also be addressed. The Neurobiology course gives the student extended knowledge about how the nervous system is organized, and how it functions in order to change physiological state of neuronal circuits which underlies the generation of behavior. Thus, the nervous system is explored at molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral levels. The Genetics course aims to provide knowledge... [-]
