Is Kazakh National Medical University a Government University?

    Yes, the Kazakh National Medical University is indeed a government university and the biggest proof pointing towards this fact is its origins. It came into being as a result of the Decree of the People’s Commissars of the RSFSR (Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic).

    It was yet another government order that gave this university its 1st director named Dzhafarovich Asfendiyarov. This order was given by the People’s Commissariat of Health of the KASSR (Karelian Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic).

    In fact, the very status of a national university due to which it has become such a preferred destination for MBBS abroad, is also a result of a Decree by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It was only after this that the institution came to be known as the Kazakh National Medical University.

    Simply saying, this institution is an accredited and recognized government institution and a public body in Kazakhstan.
