VSUES promotes and protects the health and wellness of students and the broader campus community in order to enable individuals to better achieve their educational and personal goals.

One of the major examples is clinic and diagnostic center “Lotus”, located in VSUES’s main building.

It is equipped with the latest technology: diagnostic system “Valenta”. This system can explore the cardiovascular, nervous and respiratory systems; universal radiosurgical apparatus “Surgitron”, which allows to execute gynecological surgery without blood, pain and severe consequences.

It is a medical clinic, where you may receive care for needs such as:

  • Acute problems such as a fever, respiratory illness, stomach pain, skin rash, and minor emergencies;
  • High blood pressure;
  • Preventive care such as physical exams;
  • X-rays and ultrasounds;
  • Dentistry services.

Clinical staff are fully licensed, credentialed and include medical doctors, physician assistants and nurses.

To visit: Most medical services require an appointment, however they offer options for urgent needs. In case of emergency don’t forget to inform your advisor teacher about the situation happened to provide you with the necessary support and information. 

If you need more advanced evaluation or treatmentyou may be referred to any Vladivostok clinic or outside specialist. Payment for health care outside VSUES (including the emergency room) is your responsibility, which is the reason you should have health insurance.
