The Russian Department of Shandong First Medical University, founded in September 2004, undertakes the teaching of undergraduate Russian courses, university Russian courses, and second foreign language courses. After years of teaching research and practice, the Russian Department has been highly recognized for its talent training by society, with a relatively complete faculty, Sino-Russian joint education as the main training method, and a guaranteed teaching quality system.

The Russian Department aims to cultivate students who have an international vision and humanistic accomplishments, master the Russian language, literature, and national cultural knowledge, and have the ability to apply comprehensive Russian, cross-cultural communication, critical thinking, and innovation. We also highlight the characteristics of medical Russian and foster our students to be applied, innovative Russian professionals or composite talents who can skillfully engage in translation, teaching, and management in education, culture, foreign-related medicine, foreign affairs, foreign trade, science and technology, and other sectors.

All the teachers of this major come from domestic institutions of higher learning and foreign institutions of higher education. This diverse relationship enables the Russian faculty members to learn from different academic styles, academic traditions, and academic backgrounds, and maintain good academic relations with other peer institutions, which makes the discipline structure of the major more reasonable.

There are 7 full-time teachers in our major, and Russian foreign teachers are employed throughout the year. Among the full-time teachers, there are 4 teachers with senior titles and 3 teachers who are lecturers. There are 4 teachers with doctoral degrees (including 1 postdoctoral fellow and 1 post-doctoral candidate) and 3 masters. All the teachers have overseas study and visiting experience.

In the past five years, the teachers of this major have undertaken and participated in 2 national projects, 3 projects of the Ministry of Education, 1 major project of the Ministry of Education, and 10 projects at the departmental level. They have won 6 provincial and ministerial teaching achievement awards and scientific research awards. We have published more than 40 research papers and teaching research papers, including 3 CSSCI journal papers and nearly 20 core journal papers. We participated in the translation of 2 books and published 1 textbook.

In order to meet the demand for foreign language talents under the national "Belt and Road" initiative and respond to the internationalization development strategy of the university, the School of Foreign Languages has vigorously expanded the space for international cooperation with Russia. On the basis of previous cooperation with relevant universities in Russia, in 2014, we reached a cooperation agreement with Moscow State University and other universities in Russia, opening a new chapter in international cooperation in running schools with Russia.

At present, the international cooperation of the Russian major in our school is at the forefront of peer colleges in the province. Especially the "2+2" model, which can be described as a highlight of talent training. Since 2014, the Russian major has sent more than 120 students to study in Russia.

In addition to our study abroad programs, students also participate in the government-sponsored study abroad programs of the China Scholarship Council (undergraduate transfer program and government-funded master's degree program) every year.
