About St. Teresa Medical University
Armenia officially the Republic of Armenia is a landlocked country located in the Armenian Highlands of Western Asia. It is a part of the Caucasus region; and is bordered by Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, the Lachin corridor under a Russian peacekeeping force .
Yerevan, Armenia's capital, is marked by grand Soviet-era architecture. The Matenadaran library, housing thousands of ancient Greek and Armenian manuscripts, dominates its main avenue. Republic Square is the city's core, with musical water fountains and colonnaded government buildings.
Armenia is a mountainous country characterized by a great variety of scenery and geologic instability.
Because of Armenia’s position in the deep interior of the northern part of the subtropical zone, enclosed by lofty ranges, its climate is dry and continental. Regional climatic variation is nevertheless considerable. Intense sunshine occurs on many days of the year. Summer, except in high-elevation areas, is long and hot, the average June and August temperature in the plain being 77° F (25° C); sometimes it rises to uncomfortable levels. Winter is generally not cold; the average January temperature in the plain and foothills is about 23° F (−5° C), whereas in the mountains it drops to 10° F (−12° C). Invasions of Arctic air sometimes cause the temperature to drop sharply: the record low is −51° F (−46° C). Winter is particularly inclement on the elevated, windswept plateaus. Autumn—long, mild, and sunny—is the most pleasant season.
The current metro area population of Yerevan in 2021 is 1,089,000, a 0.28% increase from 2020. The metro area population of Yerevan in 2020 was 1,086,000, a 0.28% increase from 2019.
The capital city of the Republic of Armenia, Yerevan is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It dates back to the 8th century, when the fortress of Erebuni was built by king Argishti I. Yerevan is often pegged as the ‘Pink City’ because of the colour of the stones used to build much of the city centre, which is a compact area known as Kentron. This area, amongst others, has been greatly developed over the past decade, resulting in more restaurants, cafés, shops and hotels.

The Medical University After Saint Tereza was founded in Yerevan in 1992 by Larisa Hambartsumyan and has been the first and the only one in its kind in Armenia. In 1996 the university received a letter of blessing from Mother Teresa. Rector of the University, Larisa Hambartsumyan is a member of the International Orem Society (IOS) for Nursing Science and Scholarship.
The foundation of this educational institution became the basis for creation of highly qualified medical workers in Armenia, whose compassion and humaneness as well as sympathy for the seek people serve as the bases for their moral-ethical activities.
In the Medical University of St. Theresa, besides the principles of medical education, the students acquire practical skills and psychological-pedagogical capacities. This enables the university graduates not only to successfully and highly productively implement their medical activities, but also to be engaged in treating, taking care of the sick and disabled people, orphans, lonely mothers and the elderly, who are in need of charity, love, attention, and tactful approach. The students also take an active part in the organization of sanitary – instructive work and in concrete events aimed at preventing certain diseases.
