Meanwhile radical changes of social and political establishment took place in Russian Federation for last 20 years surely reflected the basic principles of healthcare organization system. The major part of Russian postgraduate medical educational system at the present day stands out the global world innovation process, at best serving only a regional innovation program. Medical education reformation process must be multicomponent and to be done in close cooperation of science and education. Only a community of educators and scientists is a prior in decision making. To manage this problem at first several goals are to be gained: revision of postgraduate educational period, development of consecutive training modules due to evidence based medicine principles, training specialists for every stage of healthcare service, starting from primary level, development of training quality supervision system with a personal tutors' responsibility for a training result.
