In Yerevan State Medical University, as many professional subjects, the subject of physical education is of key importance. The university emphasizes the spread and development of a healthy lifestyle by both staff members and future doctors, a vivid example of which is the latter’s active participation in many organized events. During each academic year, YSMU students, participating in city, intra-university, inter-university, and international championships, achieve successes in various sports, receiving medals and certificates. The academic staff of YSMU is not left out of sports successes as well. Becoming an inspiring role model for the younger generation, they also actively participate in various intra-university and inter-college activities. The Department of Physical Education also organizes hikes and other health activities.
