ARMY MEDICAL ACADEMY situated at 6 Akademika Lebedeva Street, an educational institution providing training for army doctors. A unique scientific and medical centre. It was founded in 1798 as the Petersburg Medical and Surgical Academy based on a medical and surgical school. Ranked as one of the best educational institutions in the empire, it was known as the Imperial Medical and Surgical Academy from 1808. A member of the Medical and Surgical Academy (Army Medical Academy) had the rights, liabilities, and benefits of a member of the Academy of Sciences. The academy received its present-day name in 1881 and was named after S. M. Kirov from 1935 to the start of the 1990s. In 1956, it was united with the Naval Medical Academy established on the basis of Obukhovskaya Hospital and the Third Leningrad Medical Institute in 1940.
