Russian medical professionalsRussian physicians worked with Clemson’s Institute for Economic and Community Development (CIECD) as their country prepares to privatize the medical system.

The Institute hosted the fact-finding delegation of 11 Russian medical professionals, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Columbia-Northeast. During their two-week visit, the delegation met with hospitals, medical universities, private medical practices, and legal and human resources specialists in Columbia, Charleston and Clemson.

“It would have taken seven years of travel and seminars to acquire the information we did in our two-week visit,” said Dr. Viktor Dodukh, a psychiatrist from Novorossiysk, Russia.
Selected members of the delegation will continue to work with CIECD as they incorporate their new knowledge and seek to refine their business practices.
