Grodno State Medical University
Grodno State Medical University (educational establishment “Grodno State Medical University” – GrSMU; Belarusian: is a university in Grodno, Belarus. It specializes in medicine and medical psychology. It is the oldest medical school in Belarus and is considered, according to some international sources, the best medical university in Belarus. GrSMU is a successor of the first medical school in Belarus, the Grodno Medical Academy, established in 1775 by Antoni Tyzenhaus, former mayor of Grodno, for improving the almost nonexistent healthcare system in the city. Jean-Emmanuel Gilibert, French botanist, Freemason, and medical doctor, became its first rector. Under his rule were trained first doctors (former illiterate peasants), built a botanical garden, and a chemist’s shop. The academy progressed quickly, so soon in 1781, it was reorganized into the Medicine Faculty of Vilna University.
