The article outlines key moments in the history of training healthcare organisation and public health professionals at the N.A. Semashko Department of Public Health and Healthcare of Sechenov University. The residency training of doctors was broached at Imperial Moscow University in the mid-19th century. The primary goal of the Department of Social Hygiene of the Faculty of Medicine at the First Moscow State University, created in 1922 at the instigation of the first People’s Commissar of Public Health N.A. Semashko, was the specialised training of students. Over time, the department’s area of focus and name changed several times. However, it was its successors that conducted conceptual substantiation of the residency training of healthcare leaders in 1995. Staff at the Faculty of Healthcare Management of Sechenov University played a pivotal role in implementing these ideas. The authors note that not only the wealth of accumulated domestic experience but also the experience of colleagues abroad is employed in the residency training of healthcare organisation and public health professionals.
