History

     The Department of Dermatology has established on April 26, 1950 by the Order No.16 of the Director of the National University of Mongolia and it laid foundation for the further development of this sector, educational base for medical students and dermatologists, and improvement of the patient care, dermatology treatment and research practice.

     The Head of the first Department of Dermatology was a Soviet specialist and associate professor Boris Alexeivich Zenin. The Head of the medical department A.M. Sobolev taught dermatology to medical students first time, between academic years of 1945 – 1946. While teaching the subject of dermatology, A.M.Sobolevdeveloped textbooks in dermatology, which translated into Mongolian by professors T. Shagdarsuren and Ch. Dolgor.

    Ch.Dolgor, People’s Doctor of Mongolia, Honored Doctor and Professor, became the head of the department in 1958 and administrated the Department of Our National Specialists.
