New academic year – new challenges!

Riga Medical College of the University of Latvia will be led by new director Dr. Aksels Roshofs, a former long-term head of the SEMS Riga Regional Centre. He will replace the current director of the University College, Astras Bukulīte, who has successfully run the institution since 2010. She has been elected in the position for 2 terms; therefore the reins of management are transferred to the new director, who has taken up the director duties since July 1, 2020. Previously Dr. Aksels Roshofs has been a lecturer in the study program “Medicine”.

The long-term director would like to thank every former and current colleague and point out: “Achieving our goals would not have been possible without a great like-minded team, with whom the mountains have been overthrown!”

Dr. Aksels Roshofs sees the future of University College as an educational institution that trains outstanding healthcare professionals. Current students and new applicants are encouraged: “Never give in to difficulties!”

All those who wish to study are invited to choose Riga Medical College of the University of Latvia, because we offer to acquire highly demanded professions. This is also confirmed by the data of the Graduate Register, which indicates 96% college graduates employment.
