History of the department

Professor V. A. Rozhanevsky was sent from Baku to the Medical Institute in 1936 to give lectures on forensic medicine. N. F. Zhivoderov was appointed head of the Department of Forensic Medicine in 1937, and worked in this position until 1977. It was he who contributed to the creation of the department.

She has been teaching at the department for 30 years. Associate professor L. T. Artamonova has been the head of the department since 1947, and from 1970 to 1999 — Professor G. G. Omarov. Professor T. R. Ashurbekov has been the head of the department from 1999 to the present.


The pedagogical process setting up experience at the DSMA Department of Forensic Medicine shows that in the teaching process, the main thing is to teach students the relevant theoretical knowledge in the field of forensic medicine and practical skills necessary to perform the function of an expert doctor and to form expert thinking among students, the use of forensic medical knowledge and methods of work in general medical activities.  

 To fulfill this task, the lectures on forensic medicine present the basics of forensic science, its latest achievements, connections with other medical and related specialties, materials of methodological letters, dissertations, journal articles published in the leading newspapers are widely used.

At practical classes held in the department of living persons examination, in the sectional hall and laboratory units of the ROCME RD, students, within the procedural permissible limits, independently actively practice in the production of current examinations conducted on the basis of decisions of the judicial and investigative bodies of the RD. At the same time, students actually become in the position of an expert doctor (under the supervision of a responsible teacher).

 Students are taught in practical classes to study corpses, physical evidence, examination of living persons and examination of documents and materials of the investigation. Assessment of the quality of preparation and assimilation of the topic is carried out by the teacher by interviewing, conducting test control, solving situational problems, describing models, wet and bone preparations, imitating wounds, forensic photos on the topic of classes, participation of students in the process of autopsy of corpses and examination of living persons, conducting examinations on medical documents. Classes are held according to the cyclic method and end with a differentiated test. The test is carried out in stages: the solution of the test control (100 questions per option), a written answer to the ticket and the solution of situational problems.
