Who took the Hippocratic oath: 7 Russian stars who exchanged white coats for the stageBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/who-took-the-hippocratic-oath-7-russian-stars-who-exchanged-white-coats-for-the-stage
Just imagine, you are lying in the hospital, and then Garik Martirosyan comes to your ward, followed by Jasmine in the role of a nurse. No, it's not a dream! This really could have happened if these stars had not once exchanged white coats for the stage and show business.
Who else from Russian celebrities has a medical degree, read in our material.
The famous TV presenter and actor Mikhail Shats graduated from the Leningrad Medical Institute in 1989. There, the future comedian learned how to put ivs, perform intubation, do anesthesia, and also mastered many other skills necessary to save lives. Therefore, for the next six years, Mikhail did exactly that - he worked as an anesthesiologist-resuscitator.
However, even at the institute, Mikhail became interested in KVN and revealed himself as a talented comedian and presenter. Therefore, when in the mid-1990s Schatz moved to Moscow and could not get a job in his medical specialty, he did not despair, but began his journey as a show business professional. And it was a good decision.
Singer, poet and composer Alexander Rosenbaum was born into a family of doctors: his mother was an obstetrician-gynecologist, and his father was a urologist. Therefore, he and his younger brother Vladimir decided to follow in their parents' footsteps. The now famous bard received a diploma of an anesthesiologist-resuscitator and got a job as an ambulance doctor.
However, music attracted Alexander even then, so in the evenings he studied at the jazz school and performed at skits and student performances. A year later, Alexander made the final choice in favor of creativity, but still annually gives concerts at his institute.
Now everyone knows Yana Rudkovskaya as a successful producer, businesswoman and socialite. But once Yana was a dermatologist! Yes, yes, Rudkovskaya graduated from the Medical University in Barnaul and worked for some time in her specialty. And later she opened her own network of beauty salons — medical education was just right for her.
Over time, Yana realized that she was interested in show business and everything related to it. But looking at the perfect skin of a 45-year-old entrepreneur, it becomes obvious that the knowledge gained at the university was definitely useful to her.
As a child, Garik Martirosyan's father advised him to become a doctor. The man argued that there is always an opportunity to change the field of activity, and medical education will definitely not hurt. That's what happened: Garik graduated from the Yerevan State Medical Institute and worked as a neuropathologist-psychotherapist for three years.
The comedian admits that he really liked this job, but still he found his vocation on stage. But medical skills really came in handy: according to Garik, the experience of working as a psychotherapist "helps to maintain a healthy atmosphere in a complex creative team."
Another comedian with a medical background is Mikhail Galustyan. His mother Susanna Ardashovna, who was also a doctor by education, tried to instill in him a love for the hospital. The woman took little Galustyan with her on shifts and even taught him how to apply a cast. One day Mikhail took advantage of this knowledge and cast his hand himself so as not to go to school!
But Mikhail never managed to become a doctor and fulfill his mother's dream, because even while studying at the institute, he became interested in playing KVN. How this hobby ended, you know yourself.
But Jasmine's parents (real name — Sarah), on the contrary, had nothing to do with medicine and worked in the field of art. Her father was an honored choreographer, and her mother was a conductor. Nevertheless, the girl decided to connect her life with medicine, entered college and graduated with a red diploma.
But then she tried her hand as a performer when she performed with the KVN team on stage. Then she immediately realized that she wanted to become a singer, especially since Jasmine had a talent for this.
Now everyone knows Svetlana Surganova as the vocalist of the rock band "Night Snipers". But her life could have turned out quite differently if in the past she had not decided to follow a creative path.
Since her youth, Sveta seriously planned to practice medicine and received two educations at once: first at a medical school, then at a pediatric academy. Perhaps now it is to her that you would bring your children to the reception. But fate decreed otherwise.
