The Medical University in Varna is the first and only medical university in Bulgaria, which provides training in the field of "Maritime Medicine". Maritime medicine is a specific medical discipline that has been studied in different levels and forms, predominantly in the developed maritime countries (the USA, Russia, the UK, France, China, Japan, etc.).
