International and Private Medical Clinics in RussiaInternational medical centers in Russia (that operate as private clinics) are generally well equipped and have western-trained medical doctors on staff. English is typically spoken thus expatriates seeking medical care in Russia can be assured that these clinics will provide adequate and efficient medical care. Almost all international medical centers can arrange house calls or doctor home visits if needed. A number of private clinics offer their own annual coverage packages. Keep in mind that those only provide coverage for out-patient services and wont guarantee protection in more complex cases. Keep in mind that in Russia higher price does not necessarily indicate a better quality product or service. When in doubt seek advice of people who have first hand experience in the facility you are inquiring about. Because specialization in medical schools and institutions in Russia starts very early, there are comparatively few general medical practitioners when compared to western countries. There are however a wide range of very narrowly specialized professionals in each field of medicine that general clinics and hospitals will employ. The law of Russian Federation requires all foreign nationals employed in Russia to obtain an occupational health and work permit. Most of the clinics and hospitals listed here are able to administer such a certificate.
