Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University presented its first lecture on September 26, 1906, At that point of time it was named the Russian State Medical University (RSMU). There were only women enrolled for the course, called "medichki" and studying for the HMCW (Higher Medical Course for Women). The country was in need of medical specialists and the establishment of RSMU addressed this as an immediate requirement for more doctors.

In 1930, it emerged as the 2nd Moscow State Medical Institute and in 1956 it was renamed after the prominent Russian surgeon and anatomist Nikolay Pirogov, who was considered the founding father of field surgery and was one of Europe’s first surgeons to use ether as an anaesthetic. In 1847, he became the first surgeon to use anaesthesia in a field operation and also developed his own technique of using plaster casts to treat fractured bones. So it seems admirable that one of Russia’s biggest medical universities is named after one of the country’s most widely recognised physician.
