Strategic Academic Unit 1 (StrAU 1)

Training the Next Generation of Healthcare Professionals

StrAU 1 OVERVIEW

First MSMU launches training medical staff with advanced set of skills and competencies in line with PPPM-based treatment (predictive, preventive and personalized medicine) encompassing medical humanities, social sciences, strong communication and other soft skills. StrAU 1 focuses on strengthening the training programs for healthcare professionals by integrating clinical training and research work. FMSMU is about to adopt and develop the best practices for training healthcare staff by enhancing network cooperation with medical schools around the world.

StrAU 1 ADVANCED TRAINING OPTIONS

PPPM-based learning

Predictive, preventive and personalized medicine aim rather at prevention than treatment based on early detection of pathology predictors far before its clinical manifestations.

The educational philosophy is being rearranged in line with global trends in PPPM.

The Russian government recognizes preventive medicine as a top priority by funding relevant projects under the Federal Program of Healthcare Development till 2020. First MSMU has already founded International PPPM Consortium which united world-leading PPPM institutions: European Association for Predictive, Preventive and Personalized Medicine (EPMA), International Society of Personalized Medicine (ISPM) и Personalized Medicine Coalition (PMC). The main idea of the organization is to promote PPPM into the healthcare routine as a health-preserving system. 

StrAU 1 RERSEARCH HIGHLIGHTS

The StrAU 1 environment is an opportunity for trainees to pursue the clinician-scientist path by getting involved into research projects. Trainees would be expected to devise a personalized curriculum. 

StrAU 1 FOCUS RESEARCH AREAS

• Genomics – drugs for preventive gene PPPM-based therapy 

• Proteomics – methods of individual proteins and antigen determinants detection 

• Metabolomics – cell metabolic functioning 

• Bioinformatics – methods of mathematical modeling in the aforementioned areas 

PPPM-based research
Predictive, preventive and personalized medicine (PPPM) is based on pre-clinical detection of a latent pathology using biological indicators before the first clinical manifestations of a disease and preventive care of the health problem defined. Recently, healthcare system has been focused on a patient already suffering from a disease, while omitting personal health monitoring. 

Extensive implementation of PPPM policies with obligatory pre-clinical diagnostics is funded by the European Commission, US National Institute of Health, US Food and Drug Administration. The Government of the Russian Federation has defined the Development of Preventive Medicine project as a top priority in terms of innovations within the federal programme Healthcare 2020. 

International Consortium patronized by First MSMU

• European Association for Predictive, Preventive and Personalized Medicine, Brussels, European Parliament 

• International Society of Personalized Medicine, Tokyo, Japan 

• Personalized Medicine Coalition, Washington, DC, USA

StrAU 1 ORGANIZATION CHART

Initially, the StrAU 1 was started with the Centre for Innovation in Medical Education MEDICINE OF THE FUTURE that covers: 

• School of General Medicine (undergraduate education) 

• Clinical Residency 

• Doctoral Programs (postgraduate education) 

By 2017, the Centre for Innovation in Medical Education called Personalized Medicine is set to be established under StrAU 1. By 2020, the Centre will be evolved into the International School for PPPM in cooperation with partner universities.
