The death of Boris Kirkin

On the evening of December 28, 2014, the heart of our beloved head physician, professor, and doctor of medical services, stopped. Boris Kirkin was about to turn 76 years old on January 15th.

Boris was a remarkable man in all respects, and an expert in medicine, to which he devoted his whole life. A student of Academician Lukomsky, Professor Kirkin worked with the best physicians of the country- V.D. Fedorov, G.I. Vorobiev, and Professor I.M. Korochkina. He was also an exceptional teacher; many of his students advanced to leading positions in various hospitals and institutions.

The passing of Boris was a huge loss- not only for medicine, but for his colleagues and students; for his patients, to whom he gave his heart and soul. Such doctors are never forgotten, and we have always tried to learn from him.
It is hard to imagine that we will no longer see our cherished doctor in the corridor of our clinic- that we will no longer hear his jokes or be able to ask questions of such a knowledgeable man.

He will always live on in our memories, and in the history of our clinic, which he founded.
