Rīga Stradiņš University acquired its status as a university in 2002, however its historical roots extend back to Rīga Medical Institute, founded in 1950 on the base of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Latvia, and in 1990 was renamed as the Medical Academy of Latvia. The vast majority of medical professionals working in various fields in Latvia have acquired their education at Rīga Stradiņš University.

Today Rīga Stradiņš University trains not only doctors, dentists, pharmacists and nurses, but also specialists in rehabilitation, public healthcare, social sciences and law. Our university focuses on specialities, which are greatly needed by the society and the state.

If you are interested in working with people and you wish to pursue your future profession in fields, which affect the quality of human life, please feel free to acquaint yourself with our accredited study programmes and join the ranks of our current students.
