This section explains how to get emergency medical assistance both at HSE and outside of HSE. In case of a health-related issue, please make sure to inform your direct supervisor and coordinator.
I. At HSE University
Several HSE buildings in Moscow are equipped with first-aid posts where all HSE employees can receive paramedical services. The Full list of first-aid posts, their locations and working hours are available at this page.
Please remember that if you have a more serious condition than a minor injury, dizziness or a headache, we strongly recommended that you call emergency medical services (ambulance).
II. Outside of HSE University (on the street, in public places, etc.)
a. Calling a state ambulance
You can call an ambulance from any location within Russia 24/7 and free of charge:
- 103 (for calls from landline phones);
- 112 (for calls from mobile phones).The hotline 112 has English-speaking operators.
In case of life-threatening situations, anyone admitted to public and municipal health institutions is entitled to free primary medical care (emergency medical assistance, including specialized assistance) until they are out of immediate danger. After that, if they need further medical treatment, it shall be provided for a fee. Please make sure that your insurance policy covers such expenses.
