Altai State Medical University     

The University was established after great work undertaken by the Altai Regional Committee of the Party. First Secretary of the Regional Committee of the Communist Party Alexander Georgiev, in his memo on The organization of the Altai State University to the Ministry of Higher Education of the Soviet Union on Dec. 6, 1972 grounded the need of a new institution of higher education in the Altai region with multi-instruction, because the region urgently needed highly qualified specialists.

In 1972, the Regional Committee of the CPSU and the Regional Executive Board appealed to General Secretary LI Brezhnev with a persuasive letter about opening a university in Altai.

27 December, 1972 the Secretariat of the CPSU Central Committee considered it and found the establishment of the Altai University well-reasoned and timely.
