History of the Department

The foundation date of the Department is considered to be the 2nd of February, 1961, when the Department of Chest Surgery and Anesthesiology had been created. Kliavzunik I.Z., Candidate of Medical Sciences, was taken to the post of assistant. In 1965 the Department was renamed into the Department of Surgery and Anesthesiology.

On the 1st of February, 1968, the Department of Anesthesiology and Resuscitation started its independent functioning, Kliavzunik I.Z., Candidate of Medical Sciences, became head of the department. That year Zubovich V.K., Borisevich E.B., Plavinski A.A., Zhiznevski Y.A., who successfully defended their dissertations on actual issues of anesthesiology and intensive care, started their work at the department.

In 1970 Kliavzunik I.Z. was conferred the Degree of Doctor of Medical Sciences, in December of the same year - academic title of professor. From 1971 due to the staff increase the department had been taking the assistants Kaloshits N.P. and Kozintseva K.E.
