Vladimir Yakunin takes part in opening ceremony of Department of Occupational Medicine in Moscow


The first Department of Occupational Medicine in history was opened at the Russian Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education (RMAPE) in Moscow on 19 May 2015.

A ceremony to mark the occasion was held at the Scientific Clinical Centre of Russian Railways and attended by Vladimir Yakunin, President of Russian Railways, Oleg Atkov, Vice-President of Russian Railways, and Larisa Moshetova, the Rector of RMAPE.

"The name of the new department deliberately avoids the word 'train'. The task of the Department of Occupational Medicine is not just training experts for the railway sector, but also adapting our approaches to occupational medicine to other industries. Healthy people mean a healthy economy and a healthy future for our country," said Vladimir Yakunin in his speech at the opening ceremony.

The Department of Occupational Medicine was set up on the initiative and with the direct participation of Russian Railways, one of the largest employers in Russia. The Company has preserved occupational medicine as an integral structure.

The Department's activities, which will be directed at medical safety on trains, are an integral part of the technology of railway transportation.

The Department will focus on postgraduate training for doctors providing medical support at transport and industrial companies, which are often confronted with the effects of harmful and hazardous working environments.

The Department's students will learn the specifics of detecting and treating occupational diseases, writing expert reports on professional suitability, toxicology, occupational physiology and health, social hygiene, sanitary education, the norms and rules of labour protection, safety, safety in production processes, and others.
